Various Venezuelan political leaders mourned the death of Addy Valero, a deputy of the National Assembly who was recognized for her unassailable honor in rejecting the attempts to bribe her with money and medical offers made by Maduro’s dictatorship, despite the cancer she had been suffering from for more than two years.
“The family of the National Assembly mourns the painful physical departure of our MP Addy Valero, the courageous parliamentarian who rejected the bribe she was victim of by the Clap faction. There is no way to describe the pain and indignation we feel. Our history of freedom will be written in your honour and in the memory of all our fallen heroes. Condolences to their families,” was the emotional message published by Congresswoman Delsa Solórzano.
Meanwhile, the presidential commissioner for foreign affairs, Julio Borges, also offered his condolences to her family and friends. “In the midst of our tour of Europe we learned of the unfortunate passing of Congresswoman Addy Valero. Our condolences to her family and friends.”
Manuela Bolívar joined in the recognition of Valero’s incorruptible dignity. “Congresswoman Addy Valero was contacted by the CLAP fraction to bribe her with her cancer treatment in exchange for turning her back on the Venezuelan people. Addy did not give in and will always represent democratic conviction”.
For his part, Juan Requesens’ father said “this family joins the mourning that overwhelms her family, friends, the AN, for the death of Congresswoman Addy Valero, always a fighter to the end, with dignity. Thank you Addy for your fight and sacrifice.”
“A democrat left us with a strong character, a tireless fighter, a member of the people’s party Democratic Action, a parliamentary colleague, a friend and colleague of Addy Valero. May she rest in peace,” said Deputy Edgar Zambrano.
