The Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations, Julio Borges, described as “unacceptable” the insinuations of the dictatorship to hold the victims responsible for the Güiria tragedy.
“It reflects their criminal character and how indolent they are in the face of the suffering of Venezuelans,” he said.
Borges stated that the dictatorship is unable to recognize that the Güiria tragedy was its responsibility.
“They are not capable of respecting the memory of those who drowned looking for a future that Maduro stole from them,” he said.
The Coast Guard found the bodies of 19 drowned adults and children on Saturday night near the Venezuelan coast. The victims are part of a boat reported missing three days ago.
The Commissioner of the OAS General Secretariat for Venezuelan migrants, David Smolansky, reported that the ‘peñero’ (artisanal fishing boat) left Venezuela on December 6th bound for Trinidad and Tobago, however, the boat was returned from the island and was shipwrecked on its return to the country.
