During the opening ceremony of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice for 2020, Maduro revealed that he had made a formal request to the General Attorney and the TSJ to authorize the supervision of the process by Colombian authorities.

"They will be welcome and will be provided with all due guarantees," he added.

He also condemned the position of Colombia towards Venezuela, as it "permanently plots against the Venezuelan peace," saying that it participated in the international atmosphere of aggressiveness against Venezuela.

The TSJ President, Maikel Moreno, presented the report of activities of the institution and reaffirmed the support of the court for Maduro's administration.
