Maduro asks congress to investigate the “economic war”

Maduro addressed a crowd a followers today and asked them to be on the lookout for conspirators whom he claims are waging an “economic war” against the country.

The war has lately turned into an “economic coup” warned the president: “In Venezuela there is an ongoing economic coup. I call the people to a battle to face this coup.”

He said that in the next few days he will make public new evidence of this conspiracy and will ask the National Assembly to launch an investigation on the issue: “We will open an investigation on the coup and the actors that have been planning it,” he told the crowd.

Maduro also referred to an announced visit by three Latin American ex-presidents: Sebastian Piñera (Chile), Felipe Calderon (México), and Andrés Pastrana (Colombia). This group of ex-president plans to meet prominent opposition leaders in a forum organized by Maria Corina Machado. The group also plans to visit Leopoldo López in military prison of Ramo Verde, where he is being held for allegedly instigating the violence during the opposition protest of 2014.

Maduro told the ex-presidents that they are free to visit Venezuela but that they should be aware that they will be meeting with an “ultra-rightist” group and that therefore they are complicit in the coup against him: “they should be clear as to the fact that they are coming here to support a coup d’état,” he said.

He also said that this “ultra-rightist” group had plans to assassinate him.

Note how the Agencia Venezolana de Noticia frames Maduro’s declarations on its report. La Salida is considered a “coupist group” and it is responsible for all the 43 death during the 2014 protest. In fact AVN states that the group murdered the 43 in “terrorist acts”:
Ex presidentes de derecha apoyan a grupo golpista
Durante su alocución, el presidente Maduro denunció que tres ex presidentes de derecha vendrán a Venezuela para apoyar a un grupo golpista, responsable de actos terroristas en el año pasado denominado "La Salida" que asesinó a 43 venezolanos.
Sebatián Piñera, (ex presidente de Chile), Felipe Calderón (México) y Andrés Pastrana (Colombia) vendrán al país a un foro que organiza un sector de la ultraderecha del país, que promueve abiertamente un golpe de Estado y el camino de la violencia para llegar al poder.
"Ustedes deberían estar preocupados por las crisis de sus países, y no meter sus narices en Venezuela", dijo el Jefe de Estado.
Denunció que este grupo golpista, encabezado por la ex diputada María Machado, organiza un foro, financiado con recursos del narcotráfico y la ultraderecha estadounidense.
El Presidente dijo que a los ex presidentes "le debe quedar claros que vienen a apoyar un golpe de Estado".
Asimismo, anunció que en los próximos días presentará nuevas pruebas sobre conspiraciones de la derecha, que buscan desestabilizar al país e intentar derrocar al legítimo Gobierno.
