“Sooner or later justice will come, and for the Judas of Venezuela justice will come to their doors,” with this phrase the national leader of Voluntad Popular in Exile, Lester Toledo, gave a first reaction to the most recent list issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) agency of the United States Department of the Treasury, which blacklisted seven corrupt deputies of the National Assembly who had become allied with the regime in order to prevent the re-election of Juan Guaidó as President of Parliament and his swearing in as President (E) of Venezuela.
This Monday, January 13th, OFAC, the financial intelligence agency of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, issued a list of people specially designated and blocked by the U.S. government, in which they are mentioned: José Dionisio Brito Rodríguez, Franklyn Leonardo Duarte, Negal Manuel Morales Llovera, José Gregorio Noriega Figueroa, Luis Eduardo Parra Rivero, Conrado Antonio Pérez Linares and Adolfo Ramón Superlano.
“As we announced in recent days, together with our allies in the international community we have managed to get the Judases treated in the same way as the corrupt Chavistas. We point this out, just as the Chavistas have been encircled, they must suffer the same fate,” Toledo said.
He stressed that this is a first list of seven out of a total of 18 deputies singled out for corruption, and a first step, because as he has already announced, the request for sanctions for these corrupt people is forwarded to the entire international community, to the US and European authorities, to the Lima Group and to all the allied nations.
“These are firm steps towards justice,” said the national leader of the Voluntad Popular in Forced Exile precisely for revealing the corruption of Chavism, while adding that “there is still a need to incorporate corrupt people into this list of those sanctioned and to add more nations and restrictions.
He pointed out that they will remain firm in promoting with force the same international sanctions that have been exercised against corrupt Chavistas, to all the deputies guilty of participating in acts of corruption, without distinction of political leaning.
