Borges accuses Guaidó of the embezzlement of Monómeros

The announcement of the maneuver of the Government of Iván Duque, in Colombia, to control Monómeros Colombo Venezolanos, SA, a company of the Venezuelan State, this under the argument of fraud in the administration exercised by the alleged interim of former parliamentarian Juan Guaidó, unleashed an exchange of accusations between accomplices of the dispossession of national assets abroad.

Primero Justicia (PJ), in the voice of its founder, also a former parliamentarian and fugitive from Venezuelan justice, Julio Borges, accused the self-proclaimed and his allies of Popular Will (VP) of embezzling the assets and assured that it is imminent that Monómeros be taken from the nation.

It was you

Without the slightest pressure, during an interview with one of the journalists who most supports the actions of the AN in 2015, Borges assured on September 28 that Guaidó at the head of the alleged interim, with deficient decisions for the supposed "safeguarding of assets in the exterior ”, has, together with VP, the greatest responsibility for the loss of Monomers.

He said that Guaidó “should have the strength, the assertiveness to plan, plan and propose”, and at the same time he complained that “in the end we have done it alone”, referring to PJ.

He indicated that the self-proclaimed "has rather surrendered to his environment" in reference to VP, "and he has not made decisions," he said and referring that "many times he is not even in meetings. And that is why we put (in a statement) that pure and simple name of Juan Guaidó without title and decorations ”as responsible for the Monómeros debacle.

A little late

Two days before declaring Borges, PJ said in a statement that it did not handle Venezuelan assets abroad, although Borges was foreign minister in the self-proclaimed organization chart, and another former PJ parliamentarian, Tomás Guanipa, represented Guaidó in Colombia until weeks ago, Before the Government that today Monómeros takes away, and the supposed embassy was in the offices of the company.

According to the statement, PJ "for more than a year" reported its "concern for the management of assets and companies of the Republic abroad" and since the self-proclamation "their proposals were not taken into consideration" as they were in "I disagree with the form of management", since its "priority is to protect assets from corruption, creditors and put them at the service of Venezuelans."

It is worth noting that since January Borges and PJ, perhaps foreseeing that the support would end after the maneuvers of dispossession of gold in London, the crude defense of Citgo against the Canadian mining company Crystallex, the embezzlement of the Simón Bolívar Foundation of Citgo that cost Venezuelan lives , the millionaire condonations against PDVSA in Paraguay and Monómeros in Colombia, demanded via Twitter "to show the concrete results of the investigations that we have requested, in order to clarify whether there was a transparent management of public funds."

"It is essential to respond to each case that has created doubts in public opinion and to give access to all the information necessary to clarify the events," they recommended distantly.

Eight months later, PJ ignores the millionaire corruption plot, which in November 2019 the then Guaidó envoy to Colombia, Humberto Calderón Berti, denounced, which cost him his position and reissued last Friday when attacking his former allies , pointing to the also fugitive from Venezuelan justice, Leopoldo López, for the bankruptcy of Monómeros.

He accused López of the unscrupulous use of the company that materialized with the corruption of the alleged interim agency through the management of Carmen Elisa Hernández, appointed by Guaidó at the head of Monómeros.

"What happened in Monómeros is the exaggerated, excessive politicization, which is what is happening in Citgo," he said.

VP socializes guilt. In response to PJ, the self-proclaimed along with his VP party, released a statement where, among other points, he assures that "the decisions related to assets were taken with the participation and agreement of all the fractions, based on representativeness criteria", that is, all the so-called G4.

"It is precisely participation that guarantees governability in the functions of the interim government," said Guaidó so as not to bear the blame alone.

Shared responsibility

It seemed that the war on the far right reached its pinnacle when Capriles repudiated Guaidó by announcing the dialogue in Mexico. But now PJ points to VP as the sole culprit for the theft of assets. In response, the followers of Leopoldo López assure that "the responsibility and decisions on assets has not been and will not be a partisan discussion, much less of one person", and that "all the fractions that make life in the interim government" signed the "General Council for the Administration of Expenditure", so everyone is responsible.
