US Senator Marco Rubio urged Venezuelans and the international community not to be fooled by Nicolas Maduro’s regime after releasing more than 100 political prisoners.
Rubio assured that the dictator only seeks to legitimize his electoral farce.
“Do not be fooled by these manipulative tactics whose only intention is to legitimize the upcoming fraudulent elections,” said the U.S. representative through his personal Twitter account.
The Senator also recalled that the dictatorship “pardoned” a group of political prisoners who should never have been behind bars because they never committed any crime.
This Monday, Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship announced a “presidential” pardon for more than 100 members of the Venezuelan democracy who were either kidnapped by the dictatorship or in exile.
#Maduro ha “indultado” a un grupo de presos políticos por delitos que no cometieron. No se deje engañar por estas tácticas manipuladoras cuya única intención es legitimar las próximas elecciones fraudulentas.
