According to Luis Somaza, Director of Citizen Services for the National Assembly, Nicolás Maduro’s regime uses quarantine “at convenience” to cover up the collapse of public services, the lack of gasoline and take advantage of the isolation to intensify political persecution.
This is in reference to the gradual opening of the quarantine that the regime has dictated despite the supposed increase in cases in the country, measures that have coincided with the illegal process of dollarization of fuel sales.
“Maduro’s and his partners’ discourse collapses in their own inconsistencies, when the country was supposedly without cases of COVID-19, the regime condemned the citizens to hunger and abandonment and now that the pandemic is on the rise, they order a relaxation only to profit their accomplices with the new gasoline business”.
“This is unheard of, a regime that prefers to expose its people to contagion in order to line the pockets of its partners,” he added.
The PASI of hunger
The former councilman of the Baruta Municipality emphasized the terrible conditions that Venezuelan returnees live in the Integral Social Attention Posts (PASI). “They are the fields of misery,” he said.
“Maduro, in the midst of his incompetence and his absolute disinterest in the Venezuelan people, subjects the returnees from the pandemic to the worst treatment imaginable, all this after bragging on a national TV that the doors of the country were open to everyone who wanted to return.
“In his eagerness to pretend normality, Maduro continues to expose Venezuelans, infecting social workers and doctors, only to feign false harmony with the sole purpose of continuing to steal from the people, charging them for fuel at irrational prices.”
“They are the utmost of destruction, in the Algodonal (hospital) they have compatriots without water or food and waiting more than two weeks for the results of PCR tests,” he said.
Enough with the show
For the Director of the National Parliament, the dictatorship “has made a show of the pandemic, at first they locked the country up because of the shortage of gasoline, taking advantage of the collapse to intensify political repression and now they expose Venezuelans to the virus only for corrupt interests.”
“The narco-dictatorship has only been in charge of deceiving us, they lie with the numbers of infections, they lie by pretending to control the fuel issue, the only truth is that they are incompetent and have taken it upon themselves to prove it.”
“The country needs solutions, not shows,” he emphasized, “it is necessary to install a National Emergency Government to mitigate all the crises that the country is experiencing simultaneously, and this is only possible without drug traffickers in power.”
