“Tareck El Aissami is imprisoned because he had a plan to overthrow Maduro”: Andrés Izarra, former minister of Hugo Chávez

The NTN24 program La Mañana interviewed Andrés Izarra, who was minister of the former president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez.

On the Canal de las Americas, the former head of the Communication portfolio, as well as that of Tourism, He referred to the accusation of corruption of the former Minister of Petroleum of Venezuela, Tareck El Aissami.

“He was always imprisoned at home, in a kind of legal limbo as usually happens in Venezuela, where a person also spends a year without charges.”expressed Izarra.

“Given the silence that existed (around this case) the media speculated too much. There are worse cases like that of Miguel Rodríguez Torres, former Minister of the Interior of Chávez who was imprisoned for several years. Maduro does not pursue corruption, because he is corruption. “El Aissami is imprisoned because he had a power plan, to overthrow Nicolás Maduro and take over Miraflores.”he noted.

Tareck El Aissami was arrested a year after the scandal of an entire illicit enrichment plot with PDVSA-Cripto, and for which more than 40 people are detained.

Now, Maduro’s former strongman has fallen from grace and has been exposed to public opinion as a trophy in the anti-corruption fight months before the presidential elections in which Maduro aspires to a third term without opponents.

El Aissami was Minister of Petroleum (2020-2023) and vice president of Maduro (2017-2018) and also held senior positions with his predecessor in power, the late Hugo Chávez.

Regarding the presidential elections in Venezuela, Andrés Izarra maintained that “it is an election full of traps and ambushes.”

This contest is scheduled for next Sunday, July 28, 2024. To face Maduro at the electoral polls, Edmundo González Urrutia serves as the strongest candidate since he has the endorsement of the Unitary Platform led by the opposition María Corina Machado.
