The deputy of the National Assembly for Sucre State, Robert Alcalá, recalled that this Tuesday marks a month since the appearance of the first bodies of the Venezuelan rafters who were shipwrecked in Güiria.
“More than 40 Venezuelans lost their lives trying to find better life opportunities, because in Güiria the economic crisis hits harder than in all of Venezuela. This is a tragedy without precedent in history,” Alcalá said in a message posted on his Twitter account.
The Venezuelan legislator stressed that “it is not yet clear if it was a Shipwreck or if they were attacked in the high seas by criminals, it is striking that their belongings did not appear, not even the men’s wallets appeared in their pockets. The Public Ministry (AG) must clarify this.”
“If it was a Shipwreck, just as the bodies of the people appeared, there must also have been a handbag and even traces of the boats, one of them had two 200-horsepower engines, very expensive and attractive to the mafias,” he said.
Similarly, the parliamentarian warned that “the worst thing is that after the Tragedy and even with 104 Venezuelans more missing since 2019, the Illegal cast offs and aggravated corruption continue, and the wind continues to blow away the promises of the government of greater security on the Coasts of Paria.”
“May God give Eternal rest to all the deceased and comfort to their relatives who are the ones who suffer the most from these tragedies. We also ask God to enlighten Venezuela and come out of the catastrophe in which it was converted by those who have ruled for 22 years,” he concluded.
