In Washington, the Foreign Relations Committee of the US Senate approved,
in a 13-to-2 vote, the “Venezuelan Human Rights and Democracy Protection
Act” on May 20.

The bill includes sanctions on key Venezuelan government representatives
and at least US$15 million to “defend human rights… and strengthen the rule
of law”.

Committee chair, Democrat Robert Menendez, played a lead role in the
writing of the proposed legislation. He plans to present the bill before
the whole Senate in the coming weeks.
