Leopoldo López Gil MEP announced that the sanctions imposed this Monday by the Council of the European Union (EU) are a consequence of repudiating the fraud of December 6th.
López Gil explained that for this reason the first sanctioned are people linked to the Electoral Council appointed by Maduro’s dictatorship outside of the constitutionaly recognized legality of Venezuela.
“Immediately behind are the people who have been appointed from that procedure, that illegal Assembly has also been punished for altering the current and legitimate legislation,” he stated.
Finally, he pointed out that there are those who are considered violators of fundamental human rights, “including those who have been directors of the repression of the regime, who have unleashed violence, disrespect for the most sacred of the human being that is his life, through torture and murder. They are the members of the security forces of Maduro’s regime.”
“This new decision of the Commission must remain as a warning to those who think that they may be playing on both sides of the band, without having any consequence. Everyone is with a magnifying glass on Venezuela ”, he concluded.
