Argentine government today officially withdrew the Order of the Liberator San Martín to the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, awarded by Cristina Kirchner in 2013.
The president of the interlocutor of Deputies of Cambiemos, Mario Negri, had presented a project for Macri to withdraw the Order of the Liberator San Martin to his Venezuelan pair.
According to the arguments, Maduro “has promoted the unjustified use of the military instrument and military justice to suppress protests and prosecute opponents” and “has shown to lack the San Martin values of respect for freedom and the peoples of Latin America.”
He further states that the President of Venezuela “has not shown the will or ability to guarantee the full observance of Human Rights, the principles of democratic order and respect for individual freedoms, conduct that is incompatible with the fundamental values it represents The Order of the Liberator San Martin “.
According to the executive order signed by President Macri, Maduro “is responsible for aggravating the political, social and humanitarian crisis that his country is experiencing, ignoring the permanent appeal of broad sectors of Venezuelan civil society and the international community to guarantee The full validity of Human Rights, the principles of democratic order and respect for individual freedoms. ”
The Council of the Order of the Liberator San Martin asks Maduro to return the insignia (a necklace), because he failed to earn such high honor and recognition of the Argentine Nation, as well as to have transgressed the principles of San Martin that That Order governs.
