President Rafael Correa proposed this Saturday create a Latin American Court of Human Rights from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, based in Costa Rica and put aside the HHRR Commission in Washington.
The president said that “is all set to have our own system of human rights because basically … the Inter American Court of Human Rights, is Latin American Human Rights Court, because the United States and Canada, Anglo-Saxon countries have not recognized it “.
This week, during the Summit of CELAC, Ecuador donated a million dollars to this Court.
“We believe the decaying system of the Organization of American States, the Inter-American system dominated by the US, is much more difficult to correct than replace it with something new,” he added.
Regarding the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, based in Washington, he said that although it has a duty to defend human rights, “has become a first instance judgment and gives precautionary measures, for which it has no authority. It has become in a police station receiving cases of all kinds. “
