Today the conservative Spanish paper ABC publishes an interview with opposition politician Pablo Medina, cofounder of Causa R and Patria Para Todos parties and now a leader of Movimiento Laboralista.
Medina argues that there is information that "Maduro’s mother and two sisters were born in Colombia and that they resided in Cúcuta. In the civil registry of San Antonio de Padua in Cúcuta, they said they could not find the birth registry of Maduro because it had been destroyed by a fire.”
Medina qualified the situation as “a bi-national fraud. There is complicity among the powers. There is a lot of mystery about the origins of Maduro.”
But further into the interview Medina also doubted the date of Chávez’s death as has been presented by the government, and went so far as to claim that his remains are not in the mausoleum of the Cuartel de la Montaña: “inside the sarcophagus there is only a wax figure of Chávez.”
Chávez, according to Medina, was really buried in his home state of Barinas.
