The lawyer José Ignacio Hernández González, “appointed” by the National Assembly and Juan Guaidó as Special Prosecutor Abroad, is linked to the team of Ricardo Hausmann at Harvard University and since December has been promoting the thesis of appointing an interim president as of January 10.
Hernandez, 44, is a lawyer graduated from the “Universidad Central de Venezuela” (UCV), a professor at the “Universidad Catolica Andres Bello” (UCAB) and at the Monteavila University (under the tutelage of Opus Dei), and is currently a researcher at the Center for International Development directed by Hausmann at the Kennedy School of Government in #Harvard University.
Although with a less public profile Hernández was the main promoter of the proposal that the National Assembly should assume the representation of Venezuela abroad based on what happened with Libya in 2011, as he explained in an article with Miguel Angel Santos in the NYT.
In September 2015, after the scandal of the conversation between Ricardo Hausmann and Lorenzo Mendoza on the economic war and negotiations of credit lines with the IMF, Hernández published an article in Prodavinci to defend the president of @EnmpresasPolar in response to the leak.
Hernández González is a member of the law firm of Grau, García, Hernández & Mónaco, which represents companies of Empresas Polar in judicial proceedings, such as the content of the AP42-G-2012-000376 file related to #Cadivi awards of subsidized currency.
The legal firm Grau, García, Hernández & Mónaco, to which the “General Prosecutor” belongs, defended @EmpresasPolar in a #Cadivi investigation that determined the use of false or forged documents to receive foreign currency and liquidate imports.
The story was published in 2016 by court journalist Eligio Rojas on his blog llanoadentro.wordpress.com based on the list of facts contained in the file but which was limited to contentious-administrative matters.
