The Fact-Finding Mission on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela invites interested individuals, groups and organizations to submit information and/or documents relevant to its mandate.

In particular, the Fact-Finding Mission is interested in receiving information related to alleged cases of extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions and torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, including sexual or gender-based violence, perpetrated since 2014 in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, as per Human Rights Council resolution 42/25 (A/HRC/RES/42/25).

The Fact-Finding Mission suggests individuals, groups and organizations to use the template below to submit relevant information and documentation (see template).

In order to preserve the security and confidentiality of the information submitted, it is recommended to submit it through the secure cloud created by the Mission for this purpose. Please upload the template to the cloud, along with any relevant attachments. Please use the same type of titling for the template and attachments. E.g. AABBCC_Template; AABBCC_Attch1; AABBCC_Attach2.

In order to access the platform securely, it is recommended to do so using a VPN system in order to anonymize who is accessing the platform.

Should you have any question, please contact the Mission at If possible, and especially when confidential information is to be shared by email, it is recommended to use secured email channels (e.g. using tutanota, hushmail or virtru or other encrypted emails).

The Fact-Finding Mission is grateful to receive information as early as possible, but not later than 31 May 2020.

Please note that individual acknowledgements of receipt of information will not be sent to the author(s). The FFM will prioritize review of information provided through the template. It should be noted that not all information sent to the FFM will necessarily be reflected in the final report. In particular, cases alleging violations falling outside the mandate of the FFM will not be considered.
