Foreign Minister Rodríguez to sue Capriles for "document forgery"


This Tuesday, the Minister of People's Power for Foreign Affairs, Ms. Delcy Rodriguez, said on her twitter account @DrodriguezVen that the Venezuelan far-right leader Henrique Capriles Radonski "shamelessly lies and offends by falsifying public documents to deceive the public opinion". The diplomat stated that it is "absolutely false that the Foreign Ministry of Venezuela has issued diplomatic passports to citizens that do not comply with the regulations."

In this context, the Foreign Minister informed that she will file a lawsuit against Capriles Radonski before the relevant tribunals, "so he can respond to the falsification of public documents." 

"Enough of lying to the country and the international community with evil, irresponsible, and manipulative actions against the institutions" added Rodriguez.

She recalled that this is not the first time that Capriles Radonski resorts to misinformation to attempt against the Venezuelan Government. "I would like to remind you that he is recidivistic in the commission of punishable acts. Back in 2012, he forged a communication from the FANB and it is doing it again today against the Foreign Ministry"
