José I. Hernández described the article published by the Reuters news agency as “deceptive,” and that said that Maduro would have won the trial in the High Court of England, regaining control of the reserves.
Hernandez, a special presidential advisor, explained that Maduro’s regime only appealed to the High Court of England, which in early July denied the dictatorship access to Venezuela’s gold reserves stored at the Bank of England.
“The Court only allowed Maduro to appeal on one specific point, but on the rest, it ratified the recognition of the Interim Government and also ordered Maduro to pay all legal expenses,” Hernandez said.
In a legal process, all parties have the right by law to appeal, which does not translate into a victory.
If the appeal is admitted, the Court would enter a phase of analysis of the case to issue a sentence, confirming the previously established one or changing it for a new one.
