A new attack by the US government against Venezuela, adds another wave of sanctions this Friday since the Treasury Department sanctioned the president of the CNE, Indira Alfonzo and the opposition leader, president of the National Assembly (AN), Luis Parra.
According to the Office for the Control of Foreign Assets (OFAC) of the Treasury Department, those involved have collaborated with President Maduro in “undermining the independence and democratic order in Venezuela,” the statement reads while forgetting to mention that is the US regime the one instructing deputy Juan Guaido not to agree on choosing new authorities for the National Electoral Council (CNE) and imposing the unconstitutional idea of Juan Guaido as interim president.
The U.S. is sanctioning David Eugenio de Lima Salas, Reinaldo Enrique Muñoz Pedroza, Indira Maira Alfonzo Izaguirre, and Jose Luis Gutierrez Parra for their malign efforts to undermine Venezuela’s National Assembly and free and fair elections.

The new sanctions fell not only on Parra and Alfonzo, but also on the Prosecutor General of the Republic, Reinaldo Enrique Muñóz Pedroza and the former governor of Anzoátegui state, David de Lima Salas.
In this sense, any property or interest in gringo land or in the hands of a US citizen that belongs to those sanctioned today, will be blocked, should they exist.
The coercive measures this Friday seek to pressure the government of President Nicolás Maduro, as Venezuela approaches parliamentary elections while the government of Donald Trump repeatedly pushes and fails to impose an illegal option and even, a military one.
