Caracas, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) A special commission appointed by the Venezuelan National Assembly will begin an investigation into the alleged corruption of Congressman Juan Guaido and his supporters on Wednesday, February 5, announced Congressman Jose Brito.

According to Brito, the investigations will be carried out on the use of funds from the alleged humanitarian aid delivered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and other governments, as well as on the irregular management of assets of the national companies Citgo and Monomeros.

The special commission is made up of the parliamentarians of the Bloque de la Patria, Ilenia Medina and Willian Gil, as well as opposition parliamentarians Angel Medina, Jose Brito, Adolfo Superlano, Enrique Marquez and Omar Avila.

‘It will take as long as it takes, we will interview those we have to interview, we will investigate what we have to investigate so that the Venezuelan people know what today seems to be a sort of black box,’ the congressman said at a press conference in the Francisco de Miranda Hall of the Federal Legislative Palace in the capital.

He said the special committee will invite Guaido to appear, as well as institutions and social and political actors who allegedly received funds from this humanitarian aid. Among them, he mentioned journalists, non-governmental organizations, the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference (CEV), and the media.
