Two Citgo US Execs in Venezuela Granted House Arrest
CARACAS – Two of the six US executives of state-owned oil company PDVSA’s arm Citgo deprived of liberty by the regime of Nicolás Maduro were granted house arrest on Thursday just two weeks after the humanitarian visit of Bill Richardson, New Mexico’s former governor, to Venezuela with the aim of acting as intermediary between the two governments in a bid to release the American political prisoners from prison.
Gustavo Cárdenas and Jorge Toledo, part of the so-called “Citgo 6,” were detained in an overcrowded Venezuelan prison more than two years ago while making a business trip to Caracas, the capital.
Richardson was the first to announce the good news via his personal Twitter account and subsequently in a statement issued late on Thursday.
“We are relieved to hear that Gustavo Cárdenas and Jorge Toledo, two of the Citgo 6, have been released from prison and granted house arrest in Venezuela. This is a positive first step. We are grateful to President Nicolás Maduro,” he wrote on Twitter.
All of the six executives had been granted house arrest late last year before putting them back into custody two months later after a decision of the Venezuelan regime.
The men were arrested in November of 2017 after having been charged with carrying out a proposal to refinance $4 billion in Citgo bonds offering a 50% stake of the company as collateral.
The other four executives remaining in prison are Tomeu Vadell, José Luis Zambrano, Alirio Zambrano and José Pereira.
