Roberto Marrero, former Head of the Office of the President (e) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, gave a public thanks through his social network accounts to those who helped him make possible the reunion with his wife and son.
His first declaration to express his gratitude was to Mexico, from which government he received “unconditional support”, as he wrote in his Twitter account last Thursday, October 8th.
“I thank the brotherly people of Mexico; President @lopezobrador_ (Andrés Manuel López Obrador); and the foreign minister @m_ebrad (Marcelo Ebrad) for their position in favor of a democratic solution and their unconditional support in order to be able to travel to Mexico to meet with my family again”.
Likewise, he thanked Efraín Guadarrama, General Director of American Regional Organizations and Mechanisms of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico (SRM); Roberto Velazco, General Director for North America of the SRM; and Mauricio Vizcaíno, Chargé d’Affaires of the Mexican Embassy in Venezuela “for the support and the steps they took in defense” of our human rights which, according to Marrero himself, directly “translate” into being able to embrace his wife and son.
The political leader also made a public acknowledgement to the Government of Spain: “I extend my gratitude to the Government of Spain, its ambassador @jesussilvaf (Jesús Silva) and the consul; Juan José Buitrago, for their efforts that gave way to the reunion with my family, after one year and 9 months”.
It is worth remembering that the main confidant of Guaidó, remained more than 500 days kidnapped by Nicolás Maduro’s regime in the dungeons of the Bolivarian Service of National Intelligence (Sebin). On Monday August 31st he was released, but it was only on Thursday October 8th when he was able to see his wife Romy and his son Raul again.
“We meet again! After almost two years separated by persecution and political imprisonment, my wife Romy, my son Raul and I hugged each other again,” Marrero wrote on his social network accounts with a photo of the reunion hug.
In the series of messages of gratitude from the former Head of the Office of the President (e) of Venezuela to those who collaborated with his family’s reunion, he also thanked them for the steps they taken in favor of his freedom and that of Venezuela.
“I thank President @realDonaldTrump (Donald Trump) for his support during my political kidnapping and for demanding my freedom. But without a doubt I thank him much more for his support and struggle in the search for the reconstruction of democracy in Venezuela, and President (e) @jguaido (Juan Guaidó)”.
He also expressed his gratitude to the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union, Josep Borrell, “for raising his voice in favor of my freedom during my unjust imprisonment by the Venezuelan regime.”
He also sent a message to the former President of Chile and current High Commissioner for Human Rights at the United Nations, Michelle Bachelet, about the work that her office in Venezuela has done on the human rights situation, and in that in the most recent report links the regime with crimes against humanity.
“I wish to thank the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, @mbachelet for making visible through her work the situation of persecution and political prisoners in Venezuela, and for betting on the recovery of freedom and democracy”.
Senator Rick Scott; US House members Eliot Engel; Eric Jacobstein; and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cuba and Venezuela in the Office of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Carrie Fillipetti; were others to whom Roberto Marrero publicly thanked for their support and for raising their voices in favor of Venezuela’s freedom.
