Venezuela, Berlusconi attacks Maduro: “Trample human rights”

Silvio Berlusconi called on the international community to respond to the situation of “extraordinary gravity“in Venezuela. Not only that: the Cav has spurred the Italian government to free itself from the veto imposed by the 5 Star Movement and join the other European countries in the firm condemnation of Nicolas Maduro.

The leader of Forza Italia thus motivated today’s vote in the European Parliament in favor of a motion on the crisis in the Caribbean country. “What happens in Venezuela it is of extraordinary gravity“Berlusconi wrote in a message published on his Instagram profile.

Berlusconi’s analysis

The dictatorial regime of Maduro, Berlusconi himself continued in his soul, trampling i human rights and it’s a system where “rights and freedoms belong to the state, which can revoke them“In other words the Venezuelan system is the exact opposite of the”our liberal system“, based instead on the”sacredness of the person” is “of his natural rights“.

For this reason – concluded the Cav –I voted together with colleagues from the European People’s Party motion which censors what is happening and calls for an response from the international community to restore democracy and restore freedom to Venezuelan citizens“.

As if that were not enough, for today’s vote, Berlusconi represents an opportunity for redemption also for theItaly that “because of and by choice of the Cinquestelle“was the only major European country to”not taking a position for democracy in Venezuela“.

According to the president of Fi, the Italian government has committed a “very serious mistake“preventing Europe from”speak with one voice” and of “support the legitimate requests of the democratic forces“, recognizing the interim president expressed by the Venezuelan Parliament.

The drama of communism

This vote demonstrates a clear political will – reiterated Berlusconi –Venezuela, as in other countries, the Communism proves to be a drama of the present and not only of the past“.

In today’s session, the European Parliament approved a motion which “firmly rejects violations of the democratic, constitutional and transparent functioning of the National Assembly”, the parliament of which the opponent Juan Guaidò claims the presidency.

The Chamber also rejected “the acts of intimidation, violence and arbitrary decision“against the deputies of the opposition, the appointment of the new National Electoral Council and the suspension of the leaders of the political parties of the anti-government front.
