The president in charge of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, gave this Sunday a press conference where he pronounced himself regarding the case of corruption that was brought to light, in the morning hours, by the information media ArmandoInfo.com , that involves some parliamentarians of the National Assembly and members of Nicolás Maduro’s regime.
During his speech, the president categorically rejected any act of corruption, regardless of where it may proceed, while at the same time presenting eight immediate measures, among which he highlighted bringing before the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) a document requesting the investigation of the corruption case.
To carry out this action, the head of state asked the Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, Julio Borges, and the Venezuelan ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS), Gustavo Tarre Briceño, to bring to the next meeting of TIAR, on December 3rd, the data and names of those who have appeared in this investigation, and to take measures to investigate and prosecute the corrupt.
“I have taken these 8 immediate measures, in radical difference to what the dictatorship does. The corruption that has bled our country cannot be tolerated, nor will we allow individualities to sully the sacrifice of years and many in this struggle,” Guaidó said through his official Twitter account.
