Nicolás Maduro’s government has filed new complaints against Venezuela’s self-proclaimed “responsible president”, Juan Guaidó, and his team before the United Nations and the International Criminal Court (TPI) (BCV) and the United States over the gold reserves of the Central Bank of Venezuela Subsidiaries of the state-owned oil company PDVSA are thus strengthening their judicial offensive in international cases.
Vice President Delcy Rodríguez announced Tuesday that the government would denounce both the Venezuelan courts and the TPI an alleged conspiracy staged by Guaidó to seize the BCV gold reserves guarded by the Bank of England.
Rodríguez recalled that the case is already in the hands of the British judiciary, to which he has called for “absolute respect for international law”. The Bank of England “pretends to be the rector of custody interests. No sir, you are a depositary, limit yourself to that,” he snapped, according to the state-owned VTV network.
For his part, Plenipotentiary Elvis Amoroso announced that he would denounce the UN’s alleged illegal sale of Citgo assets by Guaidó. According to Amoroso, the opposition leader intends to “complete” Citgo for $ 1.2 billion if the value is $ 34 billion.
