Chief Guverner Juan Guaidó called on Friday to protest the crisis next week when a visit by Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is expected.
Guaidó asked citizens to demonstrate in the streets of June 19, 20 and 21, during which Bachelet will stay in Venezuela. "What's happening all over the country so the regime can not hide the tragedy," he said in his team statement.
"We spent the years condemning the systematic violation of human rights and we were able to make the UN come to Venezuela, Mrs. Michelle Bachelet, welcome to Venice seeking urgent solutions and focusing on the complex humanitarian emergency," he said, according to the text.
The opposition leader described the visit of the High Commissioner for Human Rights as "achievement of democracy".
"They must see what is happening in the country, not let them be abducted and put in some salons, in hospitals without a shelter, sir, so it's crucial for the next few weeks," he insisted.
Bachelet will arrive in Venezuela on June 19 for a three-day visit. During his stay, former Chilean president will also meet with Nicolas Madurom and civil society sectors.
On the agenda of the Bachelet meeting, meetings with representatives of the National Assembly, the constituent assembly and the Venezuelan ministers were also planned.
Bachelet's visit to Venezuela has been negotiating for months and preceded by an advanced mission that traveled to the country in March to confirm that the conditions for the appointment of a high commissioner were fulfilled.
Your trip will be made within the framework of a call made by the Government and requested by your own office.
Talks on the end of the visit were related to Bachelet's willingness to prepare it in such a way that it could not use the government or any other political actor for its own needs.
