The National Assembly (AN) of Venezuela, chaired by opposition deputy Luis Parra, approved on Tuesday the creation of a special commission to investigate acts of corruption committed by former directive, headed by parliamentarian Juan Guaidó.
The commission will consist of five deputies, who “will begin work to find out the fate of more than 400 million dollars, investigate the ‘cucutazo’, and cases that have been a scam to the hope of the Venezuelan,” said parliamentarian José Brito
The deputy considered that an investigation should also be opened to the former board of directors of the AN, chaired by Henry Ramos Allup, Omar Barboza and Julio Borges. “Just as we are adversaries to the Government, we also want to solve the problem of corruption in the opposition,” he said.
For his part, the president of the Parliament, Luis Parra, indicated that the G4 (made up of the opposition parties Voluntad Popular , Primero Justicia , Accion democratica and Un Nuevo Tiempo) also “must give explanations of the unscrupulous management of Citgo and Monomeros, property of the Venezuelans they appropriated and dismantled «.

Citgo and Monómeros (the largest producer of fertilizers in Colombia, owned by Venezuela since 2005) are the two most important subsidiaries of the State abroad. Following his self-proclamation as “interim president,” Guaidó appropriated both companies and appointed parallel boards of directors to ensure that the assets and profits of these companies were managed by their environment.
