The head of the Public Prosecutor’s Office stated in a press briefing that the investigation revealed the existence of a significant loss, when reconciling the volumes received at the Bajo Grande Distribution Plant and those subsequently dispatched to the Western and Los Andes regions.

In that sense, a loss of approximately 1,931,000 liters of premium gasoline and 1, 87,000 liters of diesel was found, which affected the dispatch of automotive fuel to the western states of Zulia, Merida, Trujillo and Tachira.

The Attorney General indicated that the supervisors, technicians and managers of various departments of PDVSA involved in the scheme will be charged with the crimes of aggravated smuggling, fraudulent embezzlement, terrorism and association.

Likewise, Saab made an appeal to the whole society to maintain its trust in the justice system to sanction incidents of this nature.

The criminal network for the diversion of gasoline and diesel took place in the midst of a scenario marked by the deficit of automotive fuel in Venezuela due to the tightening of the US coercive measures against Venezuela.
