Abstract

This article focuses on the current International Criminal Court (ICC) Venezuelan case over fundamental human rights violations and alleged international crimes. I will begin by outlining the situation in Venezuela and the history that led to this state of affairs. It will then review the non-judicial and quasi-judicial activities done in the Venezuelan situation by several international bodies and their inter-relation. Next, the article pays attention to the ICC activities on the Venezuelan case, particularly in its latest standards on timely justice, international cooperation, and budgetary efficiency. Following that, I will give an overview of the institutional international framework focusing on how the interconnection between the disparate international corps could be effective in protecting human rights. Subsequently, I will look into some doctrinal approaches to the legal relationship between international courts and national judiciaries, especially the inoperative ones. I will conclude with the complementarity and subsidiarity principles working in international human rights and international criminal law, especially in the Venezuelan case.

Keywords: ICC, international crimes, human rights, Venezuela
