Foreign Minister Maduro expects countries to comply with arrest warrant for Rosales

“We are closely evaluating the events related to this fugitive from Venezuelan justice who is involved in serious crimes,” said Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro in reference to fugitive Manuel Rosales.  Rosales is accused by the Public Ministry of embezzlement of public funds and corruption, among other crimes.

In a Rosales statement made in Peru, where he is in hiding, he claimed he was allegedly being pursued by President Chávez and accused several government officials in an attempt to justify his rash exit from the country.

Regarding this statement, which was made exclusively to opposition television channel Globovisión, Foreign Minister Maduro said that what Rosales said was offensive to Venezuelan institutions and President Hugo Chávez.

Maduro noted that he expects “the request for apprehension made with a red notice through Interpol will be complied with by all the countries of the region and the world, and that it will be strictly followed, just as in Venezuela,” where he cited the example of Colombian drug kingpin Félix Cantillo Burgos.  Cantillo was recently captured in Venezuela and extradited to Colombia.
