Comptroller of Amoroso rejects UK court decision on Venezuelan reserves

Caracas.- The Republican General Comptroller, Elvis Amoroso, firmly rejected the judicial ruling of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which prevented Venezuela from recovering its foreign reserves.

He stressed that the UK Supreme Court’s decision violated the norms of Public International Law.

“We know that the main objective of this decision is fraud and abuse of our people’s resources, so the countries of the world must remain vigilant and raise their voices against this new form of corruption, with international engagement,” he said. Amoroso said in a statement published by the financial watchdog on Twitter.

However, the top representative of the country’s fiscal control body reiterated that Venezuela will continue to use all the resources at its disposal to defend the heritage that forms part of its international reserves, as well as the legitimate rights of the Venezuelan people.

In his words, Amoroso mentioned that he had denounced before various international organizations the modalities of corruption in some sectors of Venezuela’s rights, through corruption triangulation directed by the governments of the United States and Britain.

Britain’s Supreme Court returned to the Commercial Court on Monday over a dispute over Venezuela’s gold reserves held by the Bank of England, after partially accepting an appeal filed by Venezuela’s opponent Juan Guaido.

Last year litigation came to British courts, after the Bank of England refused to hand over reserves to the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV), due to a similar request from a board appointed by Guaido.

This Tuesday, Venezuela in an official statement rejected the British court’s ruling.

“The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the confusing judicial decisions of the Supreme Courts of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which, by denying justice and not exercising judicial control over acts of public power, no matter how irrational they may be, prevent the right of the State of Venezuela to dispose of, through the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV), part of its international reserves are held in the Bank of England”, states part of the text.

The nation denounced that the decision “violates the norms of Public International Law, Venezuela’s constitutional order and British law” and deplores that the UK Supreme Court has been subordinated “to the UK’s Executive mandate, leaving evidence of a lack of separation of powers, impartiality and, above all, , independent action of this judicial body”.
