The President in Charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, affirmed that the regime had just recognized the crimes against humanity that they have been committing for years, with the aim of assigning individual responsibilities over to a few individuals, and so try to exculpate themselves in this way before international justice.
“In a blatant way, Maduro’s regime has now changed the versions that it has held for years. The dictatorship has acknowledged having murdered, tortured, committed crimes against humanity and is now in search of impunity by shifting the blame to third parties,” said Guaidó in a message published through his social network accounts.
The national president warned civil and military officials, since the dictatorship cannot offer them guarantees of any kind.
“The regime will blame you to exonerate itself before international justice. Crimes against humanity do not prescribe,” he remarked.
In this sense, he clarified that the only orders officials must comply with must be constitutional, so it will not serve as an excuse to say that they were following orders.
He also indicated that the National Assembly and the democratic alternative will continue to reveal the lies with which the dictatorship intends to play with the integrity of a society that protests and demands its rights peacefully.
“We remain firm to achieve justice to heal as a society and be free,” he concluded.
