Maduro calls neph­ews’ con­vic­tion ‘im­pe­ri­al­ist at­tack’

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Venezue­lan Pres­i­dent Ni­co­las Maduro railed against a US court rul­ing that con­victed two of his neph­ews for drug traf­fick­ing, call­ing it an “im­pe­ri­al­ist at­tack”. The so­cial­ist leader also de­fended First Lady Cilia Flores as a “rev­o­lu­tion­ary” in his first pub­lic re­ac­tion to the guilty ver­dict handed down by a New York jury a week ago against two of her broth­ers’ sons. Efrain An­to­nio Campo Flores, 30, and Fran­cisco Flores de Fre­itas, 31, were con­victed of plot­ting to smug­gle 800 kilo­grams of co­caine into the United States.
