HAVANA TIMES — Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared on Tuesday that he can offer proof implicating US government officials in a plot to assassinate him, of which several leaders of Venezuela’s opposition have been accused, DPA reported.

Maduro stated that Foreign Minister Elias Jaua will be publicly condemning this conspiracy at the coming assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), to be held in Paraguay this week.

He affirmed the government has proof that US government officials were involved in the alleged plan to assassinate him.

“We can provide the State Department with the evidence that implicate high-level officials in a plot to assassinate the president (of Venezuela),” Maduro declared in his radio program En contacto con Maduro (“In Contact With Maduro”).

The Venezuelan president repeated the accusations launched by his government last week, claiming that emails of former deputy Maria Corina Machado and those of other opposition leaders made mention of an assassination plan.

Caracas mayor Jorge Rodriguez divulged emails from Machado to several opposition leaders and the US ambassador in Colombia, Kevin Whitaker, allegedly asking the latter for help.

Maduro said that the government of the United States must explain why the names of some of its officials have come up in the investigations into the plot.

“My government is ready to produce the names of the officials implicated in the plots against Venezuela,” he stated.

Maduro declared that the opposition has trivialized these reports and went on to stress that an assessment of the validity of the proof will demonstrate its gravity.

“There are direct plans to assassinate the Venezuelan president. They are the product of hate and the despair of those who have thrown together a diabolical cocktail,” he affirmed.

In this connection, Maduro said that the secretary general of the opposition alliance Mesa de Unidad Democratica (MUD), Ramon Guillermo Aveledo, made the “worst mistake” of his political career on downplaying the importance of the report on the assassination plot.

  • Oh well, the 44th Regular Session of the OAS General Assembly in Asuncion, Paraguay has concluded and there was no evidence presented supporting Maduro’s claims of a US-supported assassination plot. Is anyone surprised by this?

  • Moses you missed out the fascist plot in Aruba against Maduro which was reported by State television in Cuba. When the dust settled it was found that a Venezuelan citizen having been in Aruba for less than 24 hours, had hired a car, got drunk and then smashed into the front of the Venezuelan “Embassy” breaking the window which resembled that of a shop front. The concept of tiny Aruba hatching “fascist’ plots against Madura supports ronrobel777’s view that Maduro is delusional.
    in four years time Maduro should face an election – which he is likely to lose. At the same time Raul Castro Ruz is due to retire from the Presidency of Cuba to be replaced by Diaz-Canel. Should Venezuela then cease to subsidize Cuba, Diaz-Canel could be faced with a massive problem which could be further exacerbated if Murrillo Jorge and/or Bruno Rodriguez decide that they would challenge him for “el poder” – the power. – I HAVE A DREAM?

  • I do believe that the US is capable of “putting a hit” on anyone. But this post is about Maduro having “proof” that such a hit exists. He has been mouthing off since the day he muttered that Chavez died and whimpered about an alleged conspiracy that the US was involved in Chavez’ cancer. He makes accusations but never backs it up with proof.

  • There was never any assassination plots against Fidel Castro either. Just like there are no terrorists living in Miami. There is no history of violence in Miami either. If you believe the USA would not put a hit out on a political adversary, go dig up the bodies of those who did not have the security President Maduro has.

  • Maduro is delusional. Did the litlle bird tell him of the plot? However, he may be thinking about what happened to Allende but that was under the maniacle Nixon and Kissinger.

  • Blah, blah, blah…Ma(burro) continues along his wacko conspiratorial path. My bet is that he will not release anything because he has made it all up in his head. Remember the accusation that Chavez had been injected with a cancer-causing drug? Or how about the accusation that the two photojournalists were plotting to overthrow the regime? And who can forget his hilarious claim that he could not speak at the UN General Assembly because of a plot against his life. This guy is one for the books!
