Venezuela's Constituent Assembly to Debate Economic Measures

Venezuela's opposition-controlled legislature is refusing to recognize any of the decrees issued by a new, all-powerful constitutional assembly convened by embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

The constituents also approved Tuesday during their second session a decree of coexistence with the state's public powers, reiterating that they will not replace the National Assembly that is now led by the opposition.

Chile's foreign minister Heraldo Munoz told reporters that the group does not intend to meddle in Venezuela's sovereign affairs.

"We are not threatening anyone", said Aristobulo Isturiz, the constitutional assembly's first vice president. The Opposition and his critics, however, view it as a way to wield more authoritative power over the administration.

Presenting the preliminary findings from an investigation conducted in June and July, the United Nations rights office described "a picture of widespread and systematic use of excessive force and arbitrary detentions against demonstrators in Venezuela".

According to the preliminary findings, security forces were allegedly responsible for at least 46 of the protester deaths, while pro-government armed groups were behind 27.

The UN announcement came as Venezuela's Supreme Court ordered the arrest of opposition mayor Ramon Muchacho of the Caracas district of Chacao, which has been the site of intense anti-government protests against President Nicolas Maduro.

The Assembly also created a Truth Commission with plenipotentiary power to ensure justice to victims of violence during the wave of protests against the government that have left at least 120 dead since April.

Michelle wrote a message to the followers of Obama.org that day as well. "Happy birthday, Barack ", Biden tweeted . It seems that Obama plans to keep up the tradition even though he no longer has the White House letterhead.

If there's one thing that the Venezuelan political situation didn't need, it was Diego Armando Maradona barging into the conversation.

The situation became more acute with the installation of the Constituent Assembly last Friday, given that the body was not recognized by the Venezuelan opposition or by many governments and worldwide organizations.

The cyber bullies hacked dozens of official websites managed by the Venezuelan government as an attempt to destabilize the Caracas regime.

Muchacho's whereabouts were not immediately known, but he denounced the ruling on Twitter, saying that "all of the weight of the revolutionary injustice has fallen on my shoulders" for doing his job to guarantee the constitutional right to protest.

The team said violations included "house raids, torture and ill-treatment of those detained in connection with the protests". The UN report said it does not have details for all the deaths.

Mariana Bazzo/Reuters Peru's Foreign Minister Ricardo Luna (C) along with foreign ministers and representatives from across the Americas, called Venezuela now a ‘dictatorship', Ministers criticize human rights violations and use of violence, in Lima, Peru, August 8, 2017.

The assembly was expected to gather at the legislative palace in Caracas for the first time since voting Saturday to remove the nation's outspoken chief prosecutor, a move that drew condemnation from numerous same regional government that are sending representatives to the meeting in Peru's capital.
