Maduro is not the president: London denied $ 1 billion gold to Venezuela


The British Supreme Court ruled against the Venezuelan government in a lawsuit for access to gold worth $ 1 billion, held by the Bank of England. The decision said that London recognizes as president of this South American country, Juan Guaido, and not Nicolas Maduro.


The verdict of the court was a serious blow to the economic situation of Caracas. Despite the country's oil wealth, its economy for many years it has been in a state of free fall due to inept leadership of the government, corruption and international sanctions, the BBC writes.

Since Venezuela produces little but oil, it needs to import goods from abroad, so the country needs access to foreign currency. But due to the fact that the extraction of black gold was significantly reduced, foreign exchange earnings in the country also decreased. A temporary way out of the situation could be access to gold stored in British banks.

However, Juan Guaido, who had previously declared himself acting president of Venezuela, asked London not to transfer gold to the Maduro government. In his opinion, the money will be used for corruption purposes.

Her Majesty's Government recognizes Mr. Guaido as the interim constitutional president of Venezuela and therefore does not consider Maduro the president of Venezuela

      I can agree with you, but with certain reservations. Impunity exists, but it lies in the vulnerability of the political system that the presidents represent. It was worth the impostor Guaido to appear, and he was announced / appointed president, contrary to generally accepted laws. For them, the main thing is to remove one or another leader, and not appropriate money.

    Here is the conclusion - money needs to be stored and invested in your own country, and not in England and other foreign dens, which you couldn’t steal into your mind even in the Middle Ages.

    To the attention of world state gold holders: Gold in the next 250 years is more reliable to store in Russia. She is now at the beginning of her next rise, and here nothing threatens gold. Those who think differently may burn out and go bankrupt.

                  Well, what else can I ask after such an exhaustive answer to all possible additional questions? It’s more understandable, voluminous and intelligible, from the historical, legal, economic and, if it even has any meaning for you at all, you cannot answer from the ethical point of view.

                    The government of Spain transferred its gold to the government of the USSR so that it would not fall into the hands of its opponents and as a fee for help. The USSR honestly provided its assistance, as far as its capabilities allowed. The war ended in the defeat of those with whom he had an agreement. The USSR had no obligations to Franco.

                ... the government of the Spanish Republic on October 15, 1936 turned to the USSR with a request to accept for storage most of the gold reserves of Spain.
                The Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU (B.) Responded promptly. On October 17, it instructed the USSR ambassador in Madrid to respond to the request of the Spanish Republican government, which is ready to accept the gold reserve for storage.

    If he didn’t demand this money back, then Maduro would be the “correct” president. If I had continued to transfer money to England even further, then there would have been no claims to him at all, had he even been a dictator three times monarch. And he has the opportunity to "correct", although the West then gets rid of the "corrected" even faster.
    And therefore, it is not the person who matters, but the program that the people have chosen and if the politician (person) representing this program starts to deviate from this program, then this is fraud or even worse - betrayal. But people in no country in the world have the opportunity to punish this fraudster without harming themselves, unlike the Western elites, and therefore the Western elites will steer for a long time.

    Most of the EU countries, immediately after WWII, were forced for the "Marshall Plan" to restore the war-torn European economy with the help of the United States to give their "gold reserves" to American vaults, and even the Chinese gave their gold to the Yankees, but ..... recently they tried to return it back to the Celestial Empire, and they were "thrust" by exactly the weight of the same ingots - gilded bronze forgeries. The swindle was immediately discovered, a universal scandal was brewing, but it was somehow hushed up. The largest American gold depository in the United States is Fort Knox, there are others, one of which was the basements - the casemates of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York, where a huge amount of gold reserves of the European Union countries were stored. 11 September 2001, these buildings were blown up, and the gold stored there simply disappeared without a trace, and where it is now is a US state secret, the disclosure of which is punishable up to "life", and those journalists who conducted their investigation in this case disappeared without a trace, so not only Venezuela, but many of the leading European countries will never see their gold, it is already in the Rothschilds and Rockefellers.

    Quote: Dmitry S.
    Britain is a democratic country, amusing that it has forgotten that Canada and Australia are its colonies, only Hong Kong cannot forgive China. About how these civilized people divided India into India and Pakistan, about how they broke the whole Middle East - this is not customary to talk about in parliament. It’s not accepted to say that slavery is their thing!

    India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
