Last Saturday, April 18, the Juan Guaidó legislative shed revealed that 342 million dollars were extracted from the Central Bank of Venezuela and transferred to the United States for the Trump Administration to have them.
The disclosure came after the deputy’s fictitious government published “considerations” regarding the $ 100 bond that promised to allocate, for three months, to public health workers, “in support and recognition” of their work during the pandemic of coronavirus.
Deputy José Guerra said that the transfer of 342 million dollars of funds from the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) will be made to Citibank, the United States Federal Reserve. However, he warned that “at the moment” that money cannot be used.
Guerra declared that “this money is frozen, it cannot be used at all, unless there is an agreement in the AN and then the Ofac (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Treasury Department) agrees that it is also spent for some purpose”. In other words, the US government is the one that will approve when and why to use it.
The embezzlement was made by the “ad-hoc administrative board” of the BCV appointed by Guaidó. Guerra states that this “has managed to recover 342 million dollars, which are currently protected in the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States.”
