A United Nations fact-finding mission recently concluded that Venezuela’s justice system repressed opponents of the government. The judiciary lacked independence & impartiality, frequently received orders from the Maduro government on how to decide case outcomes, and allowed public officials to commit crimes with impunity. Torture, violence, and deprivation of life are just some of the methods used against those critical of the Maduro government. And the Venezuelan justice system helped foster this type of environment.
Pray for the many Venezuelans who live under the Maduro regime and have experienced hunger, hardship, and instability. Many have fled to Colombia, Peru, Chile, and other countries. Pray for God to soften the hearts of the authorities, draw many to the gospel, and bring peace to Venezuela.
