The corruption scandals within the National Assembly, unleashed after the dismissal of Calderón Berti from the “embassy” in Colombia, are not enough, but now also the Supreme Court (TSJ) in exile is in conflict with new “authorities” who also intend to “exercise” these same functions from abroad.
The self-appointed magistrates, elected by no one, denounced a new “self-proclamation”, this time from a new Board of Directors.
With a lack of quorum and disagreements between them, the meeting for the election was held with 13 “magistrates” who accused those not in attendance of wanting to sabotage the process.
When your world is base on a house of cards. Tags reflects line of command: In my capacity as president of the legitimate TSJ, I inform and alert: That today it was intended to install a new spurious board of directors in violation of the law, improperly using social networks https://t.co/kJQKUFQM7J

Antonio Marval Jiménez was “elected” as president of the now second anti-Chavista TSJ, Pedro Troconiz Da Silva and Domingo Salgado Rodríguez as first and second vice president, respectively.
The fugitive from justice Luisa Ortega Díaz, former Venezuelan Attorney General, recognized the new “authorities” and asked them to “work together.”
Faced with such an action that reaffirms the contradictions within the opposition, the president of the first TSJ in exile, Martín Tortabú, reacted negatively to the information and ignored what he himself called a “social media trap.”
Lamentamos que las instituciones de origen democrático de #Venezuela como el TSJ en el exilio incurran en similares malas prácticas de cooptación de poder y colusión de intereses que los llevan a recorrer un camino de deslegitimación. #OEAconVzla https://t.co/IQPb6UO0Lm

Even Luis Almagro reacted and went against the internal disaster currently represented by the Venezuelan opposition: “We regret that the institutions of democratic origin in Venezuela incur similar bad practices of co-opting power and collusion of interests,” he said.
