“It is not possible for a citizen, taking advantage of a political investiture, to violate the Constitution and the laws, and even after being stripped of said investiture, intend to continue taking advantage of it,” stressed the also leader of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).
The official’s statements follow others in support of the request, made the day before by deputies of the Bloc de la Patria to the Public Ministry, in order to accelerate the case against the former far-right parliamentarian, who proclaimed himself interim president on January 23, 2019 and adds a long record of crimes against the State.
The territorial vice-president of the PSUV for Miranda, La Guaira and Vargas, stressed that in addition to the crime of usurpation committed with the self-proclamation, he promoted economic sanctions and blockade against his own homeland, and seized by fraudulent means and protected by the United States, the country’s resources.
He recalled that Guaidó caused a lot of damage and the victims must be compensated, “because there is no peace without justice, and there is no justice with impunity.”
The opposite, he said, would be to think that it is feasible to attack institutionality against the homeland and its sovereignty, against the entire people without this having criminal consequences, without the rule of law and justice acting.
