Jamaloodin takes his case to the International Criminal Court

George JamaloodinWILLEMSTAD - Former minister of finance George Jamaloodin takes his case to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. In Caracas, his lawyer announced that all legal possibilities have been used up to now and that there is no other alternative.

The criminal court in The Hague deals with matters that concern crimes against humanity. Lawyer José Castillo said that he has filed an official complaint with the Court because Jamaloodin is imprisoned in Venezuela without a case being brought before the Court in Curaçao.

Furthermore, the Public Prosecution Service of Venezuela has detained him without any crimes committed by him in the country. The former minister has been detained at the Cicpc in Carabobo since 17 March 2017. Eight months ago, his lawyer filed a request with the Constitutional High Court in Venezuela to release his client. But to date, he has received no answer.

The Jamaloodin case was again publicized after the appeal against Burney 'Nini' Fonseca as the “middle man” in the death of politician Helmin Wiels. Jamaloodin then filed a complaint against the Public Prosecutor for defamation.
