Jorge Rodriguez, PSUV leader and mayor of the Libertador Municipality of Caracas, told supporters that the leaders of the opposition party Primero Justicia are currently on a trip to New York receiving “instructions and seeking dollars from corrupt bankers, fugitives, thieves, and drug traffickers from Miami, in order to continue with the conspiracy.”
The Agencia Venezolana de Noticias (AVN) claims that Henrique Carpiles, Richard Mardo and Julio Borges are among those in New York “meeting bankers and businessmen fugitives of the Venezuelan Justice.” DATANALISIS’ director Luis Vicente León is also included by AVN in the list.
“They went to New York, to the imperialist high meeting [cumbre], to receive instructions,” said Rodriguez. “Not even in its darkest moments Venezuela had such a defeatist and sold-out [entreguista y vendido] sector as this Venezuelan right. The only sickness suffered by the democracy of this country is that of the corrupt rightist leadership,” concluded Rodriguez.
