The Regional Commissioner against Corruption and Money Laundering, Carlos Paparoni, said that Nicolas Maduro’s regime preferred to buy luxury cars, valued at $3.2 million, instead of buying products that would help to beat the health crisis that Venezuela is experiencing in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The also deputy of the National Assembly (NA) recalled that the average Venezuelan salary is below the extreme poverty line.
“79.3% of the country cannot cover the basic (food) basket, there is a lack of supplies in the hospitals, the public transport units are inoperative, the ambulances are queuing today to get gasoline,” he explained this Thursday.
Paparoni revealed that with the 3.2 million dollars that the Maduro dictatorship stole to buy the cars in the United States, they were able to buy: 1,403,508 N95 masks for health workers, 26 million pairs of gloves for hospitals nationwide, 1,882 artificial respirators to save the lives of Venezuelans at risk.
He also recalled that the regime has excused itself blaming the U.S. government’s sanctions for not buying medical supplies, however, it was able to buy luxury cars in the U.S.
“They don’t buy medical equipment with the excuse of having the money blocked. They don’t buy what the country needs, simply because they don’t care, they don’t hurt for the suffering of Venezuelans,” he said.
Paparoni reiterated that since the Legitimate Government of President Juan Guaidó, they will continue working to seize more property and wealth stolen by Maduro’s narco-dictatorship.
“This time, they will have to make do with their old SUVs because those of 2021 will not reach them,” he ended.
