Venezuelan Parliament to debate on previous legislature corruption
Caracas, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan National Assembly debated on Tuesday in its ordinary session on acts of corruption closely linked to previous legislature, as stated by Jorge Rodríguez, president of Parliament.
On Monday, speaking to Venezolana de Televisión, Rodríguez recalled that the ABC newspaper recently revealed that Leopoldo López, a fugitive from justice, rented a house in Madrid, Spain, worth 12,000 dollars a month and said the National Assembly will request other international parliaments to dig into these acts of corruption.
'From the National Assembly we call on other parliamentarians around the world to probe events such as getting a commission to agree a Paraguay's debt (between 27 million and 28 million dollars) with Venezuela,' he stressed.
In addition, he explained that they will also inquire about the destination of the money sent by the US Congress (200 million dollars), for an alleged humanitarian aid in Venezuela, which has never come.
Jorge Rodríguez said former opposition deputies Juan Guaidó, Carlos Vechio, Julio Borges and López himself are responsible for such acts.
Likewise, Jorge Rodríguez stated, the investigation of 1.2 billion dollars were used by Monómeros, a subsidiary of the petrochemical company Pequiven, whose assets were looted, as well as of the amount sent by Europe to Venezuela for humanitarian aid too, will be requested.
