The interventionism of the Cuban regime in Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship was described by the National Assembly as an “act of treason”. After an extensive debate, in which serious and precise points were made about the long history of this nation’s interference in the decisions that have been made in Venezuela during the 20 years of the Bolivarian Revolution, it was defined that the intervention of the Cuban regime seeks to continue the invasion in Venezuela and to continue living off the country’s resources.
The debate was opened by Deputy Alfonso Marquina who stressed that, although there is a long list of acts of interference that constitute crimes, the last one exceeded all limits, when Maduro announced to the country the appointment of the Cuban ambassador in Venezuela as a member of the Council of Ministers “after consulting with our protector and older brother Raul Castro.”
He questioned the seriousness of this decision, arguing that the constitution expressly prohibits a foreigner from participating in this body that indirectly exercises the sovereignty of the republic.
He pointed out that it is an act of treason to the country to cede to a foreigner the powers and faculties that the Council of Ministers has, among which are the decreeing of states of exception, the approval of enabling laws, the convening or dissolution of the National Assembly, the suspension of guarantees, the regulation of laws, the negotiation of national loans, the decision on the budget, the conclusion of contracts of national interest, the fixing of the country’s development plan, the calling of a referendum or the activation of amendments to the Constitution.
He stated that the deputies may be killed, imprisoned or kidnapped, but not silence their voice and today they shout that “Maduro betrays Venezuela when he wants a dictator to rule this country,” which is why he called for international solidarity.
They manage the security and defense of the country
Congressman José Luis Pírela, referred to how the Cubans, who arrived as collaborators have ended up managing the notary’s offices, the registries, the police and military corps operation, “are inside Fort Tiuna, managing the security and defense of the country with the complicity of the high military command that allows this betrayal of the country.”
He also said that, not satisfied with this, they have taken millions of barrels of oil and are in the mining area evicting indigenous people to continue stealing. He also accused them of spying on the Venezuelan political leadership, and of repressing and criminalizing dissatisfied politicians and military personnel.
He blamed them for mounting disinformation campaigns and for creating chaos so that Venezuelans could be entertained in the daily routine of lack of water, light and electricity, which is why he assured that incorporating them into the Council of Ministers is nothing more than legalizing a clique that has existed for years.
Afterwards, Deputy José Prat requested that Maduro’s confession be treated as a crime, reiterating that this interference is not new since it has been reported for 20 years in various instances of national life and governmental and political decisions. He wondered if he really gave an order or obeyed it.
More than 50,000 people have infiltrated all the institutions
Deyalitza Aray said that the Cuban invasion dates back to the time of the Socialism of the 21st Century, but also considered that the last act of interference is opportune to support what Guaidó is doing outside, showing that Venezuela is a country invaded by irregular forces and a dictatorial regime that saw in it the opportunity to abort its decadence and Chavez gave it that oxygen.
She recalled reports from international organizations that there are 22,000 Cuban activists in Venezuela distributed in the military forces from high to low ranks, in addition to 30,000 medical officers, sports and intelligence technicians distributed in all institutions.
“They handed over the Bolivarian Ports to Cuba, which holds 49% of the shares. So who are the traitors to the sovereignty of what they are accusing us of,” he said.
Se ended her speech by emphasizing the commitment of the opposition to remove these invaders, which has been initiated by Guaidó by denouncing this dictatorial invasion abroad, so she asked the international community to understand that this is a problem of the hemisphere and the region that must be addressed so that it does not happen again in any country
Referring to this large scale infiltration by the Cuban regime in all areas of the country, deputy Armando Armas said that although it is important to stop the usurpation this is not all, another great dimension must be “the end of the occupation and the Cuban intervention.”
He said it is sure to be achieved with the actions that legitimate President Juan Guaidó is executing abroad, which has the usurpers nervous, especially because of what is being said in private about intelligence cooperation and state security.
“We won’t invade Cuba because we don’t want garbage”
To close the debate, Congressman Henry Ramos Allup pointed out that “Cubans live on pimping, whoring, drug trafficking and remittances from those they call worms, and from Venezuela because even though it is exhausted they still milk.”
He urged Maduro to tell Cuba to support the hand that feeds her, while commenting that the first call Carlos Andres Perez received after the Chavez coup was from Fidel Castro, offering his support.
He stated that when the opposition reaches the government it will not consider invading Cuba, “because we don’t want garbage, we want them to let us live in peace and build the country we want with our successes and problems”.
He asked the Venezuelans to have faith that this will end because Venezuela has the energy of 80% of good people who are against this 20% scab.
After the debate, the president in charge, Deputy Juan Pablo Guanipa, urged the parliamentarians to produce a chamber agreement, for the next session, taking advantage of the excellent interventions, in which Maduro is declared a traitor to the country.
