The complaint was formally introduced before the IPU secretariat by Medina, Juan Marin (PSUV) and Yul Jabour (PCV), who said they also act in defense of the human rights of Venezuelans.
Venezuelan lawmakers from the Bloque de la Patria (Bloc of the Motherland) presented a formal complaint against the directive of the Venezuelan National Assembly (2016 - 2019) on Sunday during the 140th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) held from April 6 to 10 in Doha, Qatar.
"We have stated before the Secretariat to consider and evaluate the actions of the National Assembly as they are violating the IPU's statutes by taking actions to violate the sovereignty of the country and threaten the preservation of peace," explained lawmaker from the party Motherland for All (PPT), Ilenia Medina.
The complaint was formally introduced before the IPU secretariat by Medina, Juan Marin (PSUV) and Yul Jabour (PCV), who said they also act in defense of the human rights of Venezuelans who have been severely affected by the actions of several presidents, in contempt, of the National Assembly.
The parliamentarians categorized the actions of Henri Ramos Allup (2016), Julio Borges (2017) and Juan Guaido (2019) as serious infringements on the sovereignty and welfare of Venezuela, understood as violations of the country's institutions, the constitutional order, human rights and peace for all Venezuelans.
They reminded how Ramos Allup, in January 2016, announced that the National Assembly would "evict" President Nicolas Maduro and consequently refused to fulfill his constitutional responsibilities of cooperating with the Head of State in relation to the Economic Emergency Plan. For his part Borges, a year later, continued to break the constitutional order by making an international tour to request sanctions and coercive measures against the very people he represented.
Something very similar done by Juan Guaido, who in violation of the Constitution, self-proclaimed “interim” president with the support of the United States government and right-wing leaders in the region. And, without any authority, handed over the company Citgo, a subsidiary of Pdvsa to the administration of Donald Trump and to Colombia the company Monomeros, a subsidiary of Pequiven, whose assets only belong to the Venezuelan State.
In the dissertation, the Bloque de la Patria emphasized the worrying fact that all three opposition deputies have opted for foreign military intervention and war. Ramos Allup, in June 2016, tried to apply the Inter-American Democratic Charter against Venezuela and obstructed the dialogue between the Government and the opposition.
For their part, Borges and Guaido justifying themselves under the flag of "humanitarian aid" advocated more interference and several attempts at a coup d'état. Especially grave are the affirmations of Guaido "authorizing" Trump to deploy an armed intervention against Venezuela and its people. As is also the statements of March 26, which show collusion between Guaido and the sabotage to the national electricity system, since the lawmaker said that "there will be no solution to the electric problem...there will be no water for houses , much less domestic gas, we are going to accelerate the internal pressure necessary to continue adding up in that process of definitive cessation ... "
With this evidence presented in greater detail, the deputies of the Bloque de la Patria justified their complaint to the IPU Secretariat. "A significant number of countries in the world have expressed their support, have condemned the aggression of US imperialism and the sanctions it is promoting against Venezuela," said Yul Jabour of the PCV, adding emphatically that "the voices of the Venezuelan people have support in the world."
