US revokes visas to members of the “illegitimate” Supreme Court of Venezuela

The Government of President Donald Trump announced today that it has imposed restrictions and revoked visas to the members of the “illegitimate” Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) of Venezuela.

This was confirmed during an appearance before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives, Trump’s special envoy for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams.

“We have imposed restrictions and revoked visas to the members of the TSJ, the illegitimate Supreme Court,” said the official, who recalled that similar sanctions were issued last week for members of the “illegitimate” National Constituent Assembly (ANC), related to the Government of Nicolás Maduro.

Abrams attended the Committee with the Assistant Secretary of the Office of Energy Resources of the State Department, Sandra Oudkirk, and the interim assistant administrator of the Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Agency for International Development (USAID), Steve Olive.

The special envoy ratified his support to the deputy Juan Guaidó, head of the National Assembly (AN, Parliament), who on January 23 was proclaimed interim president of the South American country, and the aspirations “to create a new Venezuela.”

In that context, he trusted that the people “will succeed in their search for freedom.”

“When they achieve this monumental task they will demonstrate to the dictators not only in our hemisphere but also in the rest of the world that the will of the people for freedom prevails over those who try to suppress it,” he added.

He also referred to the humanitarian aid sent by the country to the borders of Venezuela to help alleviate the shortage of food and medicines facing the Caribbean nation.

“We will continue to press for the delivery of humanitarian aid with the help of regional partners and the international community,” Abrams said during the hearing, convened under the title of “Venezuela at the Crossroads.”

On Tuesday, Guaidó announced that he plans to send humanitarian aid to Venezuela on February 23 despite the refusal of the president, Nicolás Maduro, whom he does not recognize as legitimate.

The opposition leader indicated that next weekend there will be assemblies, councils and “humanitarian camps” in order to organize and prepare all the people who have joined the volunteerism promoted by the opposition to seek humanitarian aid at the borders in case that the Armed Forces do not allow their entry.
