The deputy of the National Assembly, Américo De Grazzia, denied the general prosecutor, Tareck Willim Saab, in his saying about the "ghost" miner La Vanguardia since the company's partners include government officials.
The parliamentarian recalled that previously the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, was the one who inaugurated La Vanguardia and after the presentation, Víctor Cano, minister of energy, who transmitted several programs from the mining company's facilities.
The headquarters has logos that identify the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB), because the Government, had 20 members of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) to protect them, both the company and Eduardo González Mejías, known as "The gold czar".
The opposition deputy assured that the real beneficiaries of the extraction in La Vanguardia are Gustavo González López, ex-boss of the Sebin, and Antonio Benavides Torres, a military man. He added that González Mejías was only his front man and that everyone is out of the country, despite the arrest warrant that weighs on the latter, which he said is a bill pass.
He concluded, indicating that the investigation in the Orinoco Mining Arc is ongoing and that all the results they have found are sent to Mercosur, Parlatino, the Amazonian Parliament, the OAS and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
