VP Maduro: Economic actions will continue
According to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, opposition sectors "are wailing because the exchange control applied them a tourniquet"
According to the senior officer, this year the domestic economy will grow at least 6%. "Our people trust in the policies and the economic project of the revolution," he commented.
During an inspection of a canned food manufacturing plant in Zulia state, west Venezuela, he referred that some opposition sectors "are wailing because the exchange control applied them a tourniquet."
"Now, US dollars are used for our people's development," he summed up.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
