Hegemon USA is at war on Venezuela by other means for not subordinating its sovereign rights to a higher power in Washington.
According to US Treasury Department fake news:
Venezuelan envoy Alex Saab “enabled” Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro “to significantly profit from food imports and distribution in” the country (sic), falsely adding:
“Saab has personally profited from overvalued contracts (sic).”
He and Maduro “insiders r(an) a wide scale corruption network…to steal from the Venezuelan people (sic).”
“They use food as a form of social control, to reward political supporters and punish opponents, all the while pocketing hundreds of millions of dollars through a number of fraudulent schemes (sic).”
All of the above rubbish is part of bipartisan US war on the country by illegal sanctions and other hostile actions because of its freedom from Washington’s control.
No evidence was cited to support the above accusations because there is none.
Everything claimed by Treasury was fake news — supported by MSM like the NYT, falsely calling Saab a “financial fixer for President Maduro’s…authoritarian government (sic).
Time and again since democratically elected Hugo Chavez took office in early 1999, the Times and other MSM demeaned the hemisphere’s model democracy and its leadership — polar opposite US/Western fantasy versions, run by their criminal class.
No evidence of “money laundering charges” against Saab and Maduro exist — a longstanding US practice.
Bolivarian Venezuela operates by higher standards, one long ago ago abandoned by the US-dominated West.
In June 2020 — on Trump regime orders — Saab was kidnapped by Cape Verde authorities during a stopover in the African archipelago en route to Iran to arrange for the purchase of food and medicines.
His invented “crime” is all about organizing and heading a humanitarian mission for this purpose — that flies in the face of Washington’s illegal blockade.
Illegally detained since last June, he was extrajudicially extradited to the US on Saturday.
The move followed an early September ruling by the island country’s so-called Constitutional Court.
At the time, Saab’s lawyers denounced it, calling it “politi(zed)” based on irregularities, yielding to US pressure.
Last month, Maduro called Saab’s kidnapping and detention a US plot to undermine Venezuela’s Local Provision and Production Committees (CLAPs) program.
Established in early 2016, it distributes subsidized food to around seven million Venezuelan families, around two-thirds of the population, part of the nation’s participatory social democracy.
From inception, the Obama/Biden regime falsely claimed that the program is used as a political weapon against opposition interests.
It’s nothing of the sort. All Venezuelans in need are able to receive aid regardless of their political affiliations.
The CLAP program is administered by neighborhood committees connected to communal councils, social organizations operating nationwide, including community, environmental and feminist groups, others involved in cultural, education and various other activities.
Their common theme is defending Bolivarian social democracy they want preserved and protected, notably serving the rights and welfare of all Venezuelans as constitutionally mandated.
The nation’s Social Development and Popular Participation Ministry, later the Communes Ministry, mobilized activists to form government funded communal councils.
They encourage Venezuelans to become involved in defending the revolution from internal and external efforts to undermine it — mainly by hegemon USA.
In mid-September, head of Venezuela’s National Assembly and dialogue delegation, Jorge Rodriguez, announced that Saab would be included in dialogue with opposition elements in Mexico.
At the time, he said that his detention is part of diabolical US efforts to undermine the process.
On Saturday, Venezuela’s Foreign Affairs Ministry accused Cape Verde authorities, in cahoots with the Biden regime, of harming Saab’s “life and physical integrity” — by illegally detaining and mistreating him, causing his health to deteriorate.
At the same time because of his extrajudicial extradition to the US, Maduro’s government suspended talks with opposition elements, Rodriguez saying:
“In connection with those outrageous actions, the delegation announces it is suspending its participation in the dialogue,” adding:
“Therefore, we will not arrive (for) a new round of talks that was to begin in Mexico on October 17.”
Illegal extradition of Saab was “another act of US aggression against Venezuela.”
Based on phony accusations, his kidnapping, detention and extradition to the US for judicial lynching represents a flagrant breach of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
It’s another example of hegemon USA’s war on humanity at home and abroad.
Waged against invented enemies by the most ruthless regime in US history — including ordinary Americans targeted for elimination — it’s ongoing with the worst of draconian aims in mind.
