Today, humanitarian vehicles were burned and destroyed by the henchmen of Nicolás Maduro, the former President of Venezuela.

Millions of Venezuelans have suffered hunger and lack of medical support and supplies.

Maduro has operated a significant criminal organization that corrupted the ground forces of the Venezuelan military since 2012 at least.   Those troops still involved in the storage and distribution of drugs and other contraband have blocked humanitarian relief by the ton since the start of this year.

Owing to a controverted election in May 2018, the President of the elected Venezuelan National Assembly was sworn in as President of Venezuela on 23 January, as the term of the former leader Maduro expired. This occurred  in accordance with a proviso of the nation’s Constitution.

For the past two years, the world has watched with great concern as Venezuela, under Nicolás Maduro’s rule, has descended into dictatorship. With growing numbers of Venezuelans in desperate need of help and scores fleeing the country, the need for the Maduro regime to allow safe and unrestricted humanitarian access is becoming ever clearer”, says a joint ministerial statement of the Canadian Government.

…Troubling reports from today indicate that regime actors burned aid rather than allow its delivery to people in need in Venezuela”, notes the two Canadian Cabinet members.

“Canada is deeply concerned by the acts of violence allegedly perpetrated by the Maduro regime, designed to block the entry of relief items from neighbouring countries. Canada calls for these unacceptable attacks to be investigated and for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. These attacks on civilians are simply unacceptable and a violation of basic humanitarian principles and human decency.

“Canada continues to call for safe and unrestricted access to allow for the provision of humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable populations affected by this crisis. – Joint statement of:  Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development
