Attorney Diego Garcia reiterated that the government will not send delegates to hearings by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), while that body don’t “correct” their habit of “thematic hearings convene to address specific cases.”
Garcia defended the regime’s decision of left empty the space seat reserved for the Ecuadorian state for two hearings last week that addressed the rights of indigenous peoples and other judicial independence in Ecuador.
“I believe the Commission, rather than lament that Ecuador does not come, what it have to do is correct their procedure,” Garcia said in Washington on Thursday.
“While there are thematic hearings in which specific cases be treated, Ecuador will not attend such hearings,” reiterated the official.
He also argued that “the rules of the Commission said that the thematic hearings are to discuss general issues in the country.”
