The president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, blamed Maduro’s dictatorship for unconstitutionally ceding CITGO with PDVSA 2020 bonds as collateral.
“The regime unconstitutionally ceded CITGO as a guarantee for the 2020 bonds. They put the assets of the Republic at risk and intend to continue disposing of them as they please and in secret,” said President (e) Guaidó in a message disclosed through his official Twitter account.
Despite the recent court ruling in a U.S. court, the Venezuelan head of state stressed that the Legitimate Government is implementing all options to protect the heritage of all Venezuelans.
“CITGO continues to be protected. The first instance decision of a court in the United States on the so-called 2020 bonds is a consequence of the irresponsibility of the dictatorship,” he said.
“We will continue to defend the country’s assets,” concluded President (e) Guaidó.
CITGO sigue protegida. La decisión en primera instancia de un tribunal en EEUU sobre los llamados bonos 2020 es consecuencia de la irresponsabilidad de la dictadura.
Pusieron en riesgo los bienes de la República y pretenden continuar disponiendo de ellos a su gusto y en secreto.
