Rubio Urges Treasury Department to Prevent Maduro Regime From Further Pillaging Venezuelan People’s Assets Abroad

Jan 18, 2019 | Press Releases

Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) yesterday requested Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin to support the legitimate, democratically-elected Venezuelan National Assembly’s recent request for the United States and 45 other nations to block the illegitimate Maduro dictatorship’s access to assets owned by the Venezuelan state. Rubio also urged Treasury to use all available tools to prohibit dictator Nicolás Maduro and his cronies from further pillaging the resources of the Venezuelan people. 
The full text of the letter is below.
Dear Secretary Mnuchin:
As you are aware, it is the policy of the United States that Nicolás Maduro’s claim to the Presidency of Venezuela does not enjoy constitutional legitimacy and the National Assembly is the only constitutionally legitimate government of Venezuela.  
Earlier this week, the National Assembly of Venezuela passed legislation to protect Venezuela’s assets abroad. The measure calls on 46 countries, including the United States,
that have not recognized the legitimacy of Nicolás Maduro as head of state, to instruct their regulatory bodies to block access to bank accounts held by the Venezuelan state abroad and prohibit the transfer of liquid assets by the Venezuelan state, and also request private banks in those same countries to prohibit the transfer of funds to and from accounts controlled by the Venezuelan state.
therefore respectfully request your assistance in complying with the Venezuelan National Assembly’s request. Furthermore, I urge you to use all tools available to prohibit the Maduro regime’s further pillaging of assets that rightly belong to the Venezuelan people and its legitimate government by either holding them in a reserve or making them available to the National Assembly and to a legitimate transitional President as called for under that nation’s constitution. 
Thank you for your attention to this matter.  


Miami, FL – El senador estadounidense Marco Rubio (R-FL) solicitó ayer que el secretario del Tesoro Steven Mnuchin apoye la reciente solicitud de la legítima y democráticamente electa Asamblea Nacional de Venezuela pidiendo que Estados Unidos y otras 45 naciones bloqueen el acceso de la dictadura de Maduro a los activos que son propiedad del estado venezolano. Rubio también instó al secretario usar todas las herramientas disponibles para prohibir que el dictador Nicolás Maduro y sus secuaces saqueen más recursos del pueblo venezolano.
