COLOMBIA: Venezuela Delivers Protest Note For Court Session In Exile

04/19/2018 - 19:25:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry delivered a note of protest to the Colombian business attache in Caracas, German Castajeda, for allowing the holding of a parallel Supreme Court session in exile in its territory.

Venezuela protested after the shadow Supreme Court launched an impeachment motion against President Nicolas Maduro for corruption allegations in a session held in Colombia.

Last week, the shadow Supreme Court of Justice, which carries out work in exile, approved a trial against Maduro and issued an arrest warrant against him.

The warrant was requested by the Venezuelan Attorney General, Luisa Ortega Diaz, in February. She mentioned strong evidence against Maduro for his alleged ties with Odebrecht, a Brazilian construction company investigated in several Latin American countries for massive bribe payments to local officials.

According to the ruling of the Supreme Court in exile, "information was obtained related to several works that have not been completed, and others that were never executed in the country contracted to the Odebrecht company in an amount estimated at US$ 2.5 billion."

To move ahead with criminal proceedings against Maduro it is required that the National Assembly of Venezuela, with an opposition majority, authorize the request of the Supreme Court. Once authorized, an international arrest against the president can be ordered form him to face trial.

Thirty-three former magistrates from Venezuela's top court work in exile, since last year, when opposition representatives nominated them as members of a parallel Supreme Court.

The Venezuelan government said today that the magistrates of the shadow Supreme Court are a group of "usurping lawyers" and that they carry out a "simulation of public acts that are the exclusive competence of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."
