The plenary of the National Assembly condemns and denounces the acts of persecution and intimidation undertaken by Nicolás Maduro’s regime against the Special Prosecutor, the members of the ad hoc board of the Central Bank of Venezuela and any other official of the interim government, “who, within the framework of their competencies and functions representing Venezuela, exercise the defense and protection of the assets and property of the nation.”
The approved agreement manifests itself against the policy of persecution undertaken by Nicolás Maduro’s regime, through a kidnapped Venezuelan justice system, as part of the serious and systematic human rights violations that are incurred in a vain attempt to stop the transition process in Venezuela.
The resolution ratifies the defense of the Venezuelan gold deposited in the Bank of England, which will be exercised by the Government of the President in charge, Juan Guaidó, in compliance with the decisions made by this National Assembly, through the Agreement approved on May 20th, 2020.
Similarly, Representative Delsa Solórzano, president of the Special Commission for Justice and Peace, warned the international community and human rights authorities that the dictatorship “intends to undermine the resolutions of various trials currently being conducted in Venezuela.”
She reiterated that the officials legitimately appointed by the Interim Government of Venezuela are victims of very serious harassment and constant political persecution by “Maduro’s satrapy and its accomplices”.
She pointed out that the physical security of the officials elected by the president in charge, Juan Guaidó, and fully authorized by the legitimate National Assembly to protect the resources of all Venezuelans in overseas and thus prevent the dictatorship from illegally taking over the money of the state, has been compromised in various attacks by groups and the security forces of the dictatorship.
During her speech, she recalled the recent actions carried out by the government in charge of protecting the gold reserves belonging to the Republic of Venezuela, deposited in the Bank of England, which the regime wanted to recover. However, this actions were unsuccessful, since this financial institution argued that it does not recognize the authority of the current management of the BCV and the illegitimate Nicolás Maduro.
She praised the “impeccable management” of the Special Attorney of the Republic, José Ignacio Hernández and the BCV authorities appointed by President Guaidó, in favor of the defense and protection of the interests of the Republic and clarified that these resources are frozen until the National Emergency Government is installed, which she said will be used in the recovery and progress of Venezuela.
On the other hand, Solórzano rejected the attack against the special prosecutor, José Ignacio Hernández, and the ad hoc president of the Central Bank of Venezuela, Ricardo Villasmil, who’s homes were illegally raided by the Bolivarian Service of National Intelligence in the city of Caracas.
“The officials of the interim government, together with the deputies of the democratic political forces of the country, have decided to dedicate our lives, time, spirit and heart to the struggle to rescue democracy and freedom in Venezuela,” she said.
