To the public opinion and the people of Venezuela

Yesterday, 19 October 2016, well-known promoters of violence and guarimbas that shrouded our country in mourning back in 2014 by taking part in the unconstitutional attempts to overthrow the legitimate Government of Venezuela mounted an attack with a series of FALSE accusations against me and the leading company of our country, PETRÓLEOS DE VENEZUELA, S.A. These opposition figures, as it is their practice, act in a blatant display of total irresponsibility and lie shamelessly to put forward a smear campaign of moral lynching against the leaders of the Bolivarian Revolution, the State institutions, and evidently against the administration of Commander Hugo Chávez and nowadays against that of President Nicolás Maduro.
