Sectoral Vice-President for Economy, Tareck El Aissami, explained to the press what he called the new “corruption, destruction and theft plot perpetrated” by far-right sectors in his country.

He denounced that the company, a subsidiary of Pequiven (Petroquímica de Venezuela SA), is today a “cemetery of ruins, totally devastated and with a production capacity at zero percent.”

Images shown on television and circulating on social media exposed the advanced deterioration of the facility, which used to provide 37 percent of the fertilizers used in the Colombian countryside.

With the breakdown of diplomatic relations between Venezuela and Colombia in 2019, then President Ivan Duque (2018-2022), self-proclaimed President Juan Guaido and Leopoldo Lopez took on a commitment and passed the destinies of the industry into the hands of a like-minded board of directors.

El Aissami blamed the former Colombian president, the fugitive from justice Lopez and Guaido as the culprits for the destruction of Monómeros.

He said that this “trilogy of evil” made use of Colombian institutions and stole this asset, property of Venezuela.

Not only did they perpetrate a robbery, but also intended to strip us of Pequiven and had a negative impact on the primary activity of Colombian farmers and producers, he underlined.
