The National Assembly declared the absolute nullity and consequently the non-existence of the transaction agreements and other decisions adopted by Reinaldo Muñoz Pedroza, who usurps the position of Attorney General of the Republic.
The deputies approved an agreement that establishes that the judicial and extrajudicial representation of the Republic corresponds exclusively to Jose Ignacio Hernandez, special prosecutor appointed by President Juan Guaidó.
Consequently, the contracts and powers granted by Reinaldo Muñoz Pedroza, representative of the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro, are null and void.
In the middle of the parliamentary debate, Congressman Macario González denounced that “this individual has been signing contracts in the name of the Republic and does not have the qualifications to do so”.
“There is a first illegality and an unconstitutionality, because the comptroller of the Republic is appointed by the president in charge Juan Guaidó, so that everything signed by this citizen, Reinaldo Muñoz Pedroza, is of absolute nullity with respect to the obligations of the Republic,” Gonzalez said.
The Assemblyman asked the international community to sanction these companies for negotiating unconstitutionally contracts valued at more than 500 million dollars with Maduro’s dictatorship.
In addition, the legitimate government has warned the international community that any debt or contract made by Maduro’s dictatorship will not be recognized by the Venezuelan State.
Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Ramos Allup explained that Pedroza’s illegitimacy began even when Maduro was still president of Venezuela, since he was never ratified by the National Assembly.
“Fortunately, the government that is recognized by most of the countries in the world has been able to appoint a prosecutor who is attending all international trials,” said Ramos Allup.
The parliamentarian explained that all these international trials against the Venezuelan State are due to the debts contracted by the governments of Chavez and Maduro, which now must be attended by the government of President Juan Guaidó.
Finally, Ramos Allup clarified that those debts contracted since the beginning of Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship will go unrecognized by the Republic in any international trial “because these transnationals are obliged to evaluate the internal legislation of each country before signing any contract,” he concluded.
