Today, the fourth consecutive day hearing ended in the High Court of London, in the trial called to determine who is the legitimate authority of the Central Bank of Venezuela.
On May 14th, 2020, Maduro’s regime, through the illegitimate authorities that occupy positions in the Central Bank of Venezuela by means of fraudulent appointments guaranteed by the national constituent assembly, attempted a lawsuit to access nearly one billion Euros in gold deposited in the Bank of England. This was allegedly necessary to implement an assistance plan with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for the attention of COVID-19. However, there is no defined assistance plan for this objective within the UNDP.
As a result of this situation, the High Court of London decided to initiate an advocacy to determine who is the Government of Venezuela recognized by the United Kingdom. To that effect, it was agreed to accumulate the case initiated by Deutsche Bank, and in which it must be determined who will be able to dispose of nearly one hundred and twenty (120) billion dollars derived from the termination of the gold swap contract.
The lawyers of Maduro’s regime have manipulated the truth of the facts, even using audios from the recent meetings with the Permanent Commission of Energy and Mines, which have been illegally brought to light.
Under the United Kingdom law, however, the situation is very clear: the United Kingdom Government, in repeated written communications and other similar statements, has pointed out that the Speaker of the National Assembly is the recognized President of the Republic in the United Kingdom, while Maduro’s regime, in addition to being illegitimate, is kleptocratic.
It is hoped that the Court’s decision will be issued in the coming weeks.
