A Goikochia, Manager Voluntad Popular (VP) assured on Wednesday, May 24, that an opposition sector has offered Nicolás Maduro control of assets protected abroad in exchange for personal benefits such as the elimination of political disqualifications to be able to participate in the presidential election. Have given.
“There is a proposal from an ‘opposition’ group to dissolve the National Assembly elected in 2015 and hand over assets to Maduro in exchange for personal negotiations (qualifications and pardons, etc.). In my opinion, this is a very serious mistake, which jeopardizes the election,” the leader said.
Goicochia warned that if it materialized, the proposal would have the result of weakening the republic’s position in more than 50 judicial cases, with $40,000 million in litigation being disputed.
He said Maduro could confiscate more than 30 tons of gold stored in the Bank of England, United Kingdom.
Another result would be, Goicochia said, Maduro’s control of Citgo and the loss of the company at the hands of creditors.
And, according to the leader, all of this would give Maduro what he called a “position of strength” to claim access to billions of dollars stuck in “screw accounts” of assorted companies.
In addition, he confirmed, the Maduro government would seize assets from embassies and consulates in the United States.
“Government positions will be strengthened to access Banderas assets in Portugal, Uruguay and other countries. The dictatorship will also take over the IDB and other similar positions,” he said.
He added: “It would be a clear political victory over the opposition and their allies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and other countries. These are just a few results. There are more. Eliminate AN in exchange for zero democratic progress for Venezuela.” Don’t count on me to do and give everything to Maduro.
