Venezuela expressed again its annoyance at Chile, after our country questioned the prison sentence given to the opposing leader, Leopoldo López. This time was President Nicolás Maduro himself who referred to this situation.

Last week, Chancellor Heraldo Mu√Īoz asked for the ‚Äúright process‚ÄĚ in respect to Leopoldo L√≥pez‚Äôs case, who was sentenced to more than 13 years of prison for inciting people to violence during the anti-government protests of 2014 and stated that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is following the facts with ‚Äúa lot of interest‚ÄĚ.

Consequently, those statements offended Venezuela and as a result its Government emitted an official document accusing Chile of interfering on internal matters of their nation, and asking Chancellor ‚Äúto not interfere‚ÄĚ on the issue.

As a response, our country reaffirmed his concern and assured that ‚Äúunder no concept could this be consider a interference on the internal matters since it was a respectful expression about human rights and fundamentals guarantees in another country‚ÄĚ.

Apparently the response did not please the Venezuelan Government, because now, President Nicol√°s Maduro himself had responded in hard terms to the Chilean explanations.

On his program ‚ÄúContacto con Maduro‚ÄĚ, the head of state emphasized: ‚ÄúNobody will extort us. With justice we are defending the Venezuelan democracy, and we are vaccinating the Nation from a Pinochet or some ‚Äúpinochetists‚ÄĚ. Don‚Äôt come here to give us lessons on justice. I said, no one in this world, however they’re called.

On that sense, he added, ‚Äúif Venezuela needs to face the whole world and stand alone in order to defend its peace, justice and democracy rights, we will do it. Listen well in Washington‚ÄĚ according to the information provided by the Argentinian site Infobae.

Maduro also remarked that the time of the ‚ÄúGorillas‚ÄĚ is past gone. Word he used to described the ¬ī70 and ¬ī80 South American dictators.

On his last official declaration, the Venezuelan Government referred on similar terms about Chile, expressing that ‚Äúfor the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela it is a fundamental norm not talking about the domestic issues of any sovereign State. Thus, as an example, would be absolutely unbelievable for our nation‚Äôs authorities to express an opinion related to the judicial treatments and denounces of the systematic violations of the human rights against the Mapuches, or about the impunity of the authors of the crimes against humanity during the Pinochet‚Äôs dictatorship‚ÄĚ.

‚ÄúIn like manner would be unexpected to emit judgements over the privatization of the Chilean education which violates the human rights of majorities who do not have access to education, or emit pronunciations over the validity, in the middle of the XXI century, of the constitution imposed by Pinochet‚Äôs dictatorship. Venezuela has never emitted and it is never going to emit opinions related to these serious issues that Chile is facing‚ÄĚ they added.
