The Venezuelan dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro has three months to respond before the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity. This was informed this Wednesday by the agency in a report sent to the socialist government.

The Office of the Prosecutor informed, through a statement, that the extension, which ends on April 16, is justified by Article 18 of the Rome Statute, which allows the states to which an investigation is being carried out to oppose it.
