“The U.K. Supreme Court has found in favour of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, in his legal battle with the country’s embattled President Nicolás Maduro as part of the long-awaited verdict on who has control of nearly $2 billion of gold held with the Bank of England. Delivering the court’s verdict this morning, Lord Lloyd-Jones said that the justices were in agreement that U.K. courts are “bound to accept the statements of Her Majesty’s Government which establish Mr. Guaido is recognised as the constitutional interim President of Venezuela.”” (Jack Womack – ‘UK Supreme Court Reaches Judgment On $2bn Venezuelan Gold Case’ 20.12.2021, Law.com).
The Supreme Court of United Kingdom have in a recent judgement not only recognized, but given the reigns to Venezuelan Opposition Politician Juan Guaidó. Instead of giving the reigns of the Venezuela Gold Reserves valued at £1.6 Billion. This judgement gives the opposition leader the opportunity to use this and stash this as he see fit. While the Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro don’t have access or ability to do anything about. He can appeal in the United Kingdom Commercial Court. However, the judgement today sets a bad precedence.
So, because Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt statement on the 4th February 2019 stated: “ On 26 January, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt made clear that unless Nicolas Maduro called presidential elections within 8 days, the United Kingdom would recognise National Assembly President, Juan Guaido, as the interim President of Venezuela, in line with the Venezuelan constitution. Mr Maduro has ignored this call. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said: “The United Kingdom now recognises Juan Guaido as the constitutional interim President of Venezuela, until credible presidential elections can be held” (Gov.uk – ‘UK recognises Juan Guaido as interim President of Venezuela’ 04.02.2019).
So, the action made in 2019 and when they all hoped they could overthrow Maduro have clearly not happened. The United States has later participated and tried to coup d’etat the government with a failed enterprise. Surely, the agreements and failed coup last year should be evident of what sort of man he is.
Yes, the Trump Presidency supported Guaido and his cause, as he was right-wing and would follow the Washington D.C. interests in the Latin American Republic. While United Kingdom Conservative Government followed suit and as a close ally of Washington signed off to the same paradigm shift. Therefore, this is a continuation of it and undermining the sovereign state of Venezuela. Because, Trump was successful in Bolivia and he though he could achieve the same in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
Clearly, the United Kingdom haven’t gotten the memo since 2019 and that Guaido is a meaningless figure. He has no real presence in politics or in parliament. Without the foreign backers in Washington D.C. and London, this man would be a nobody. The European Union doesn’t recognise him and the majority of the members of the United Nations doesn’t recognise him either. So, he only have the USA-UK tandem still supporting his cause.
Now, the United Kingdom is practically allowing him to pirate the Bolivarian Republic’s gold reserve and be a wealthy man. He can practically buy himself whatever he wants and use this as he see fit. Maybe, he can even pay-off his creditors for the failed coup d’etat. His lucky to not be detained or be in prison for trying to overthrow Maduro with the assistance of the United States. This would have not been seen as viable method to gain power in London or in Washington D.C. However, these government are happy to support their own imperial interests in Caracas.
This is really showing how messed up the politics of the Western hemisphere is at this very moment. When the Foreign Secretary of another nation can de-facto say who can control someone else’s gold reserves. The owner and the nation who put them there is without proper enforcement and therefore has to fight for its own rights. It is like they where dumb to put it there and transfer it to London. Since London and the Her Majesty’s Government can betray you and your Head of State at any given time. As long, as the Foreign Secretary announces someone and say they are the legitimate leader. Than you can have access to it.
It is now officially proven, that London and United Kingdom cannot be trusted as a safe-haven of other people’s property. It can easily be pirated and taken into custody by people who has never been proclaimed or have properly won the affection of the general public in a nation. Alas, the imperial objectives of the fallen empire is more important than justice.
This is how low a Kingdom can go and how insulting it can get. When they continue to validate the President of Narnia, but not the elected President Maduro. Peace.
