KIEV. March 16. UNN. The Venezuelan government illegally transferred to Uganda 8 tons of gold from the Central Bank (CB) of the Bolivarian Republic. With such statement on Friday was made by the MP under control of the opposition in the National Assembly (unicameral Parliament) angel Alvarado, reports UNN.

“Those 8 tons of gold that were taken from the Central Bank of Venezuela on February 23, has appeared in Uganda, but “not completely,” not enough 0.6 ton — wrote in his Twitter member of the legislature. — They were arrested for smuggling. Remind Uganda that this gold was illegally exported out of Venezuela and that the Venezuelan Central Bank usurped”.

In January Bloomberg reported the decision of the Bank of England not to return in the vaults of the Venezuelan gold at the request of the government of President Nicolas Maduro. The Agency pointed out that the reason for this was the request of some US officials, including assistant to the us President for national security John Bolton and Secretary of state Michael Pompeo to help “cut off access to the Venezuelan regime to foreign assets.”
