Addy Coromoto Valero, a female opposition lawmaker, has died from cancer early Wednesday morning after the Nicolas Maduro regime harassed her and during a humanitarian crisis which meant she couldn’t even get treatment.
On January 11th, fellow lawmaker Williams Davila told that she had been offered money to pay her treatment if she turns her back on Juan Guaido and instead votes for Luis Parra as President of the National Assembly. She didn’t confirm this information in public.
Valero was a lawmaker for Merida state with the opposition party Accion Democratica from 1986 until her death. She started her political career in her youngness.
Valero was part of the first super-majority in Venezuelan legislative history when a group of 112 lawmakers won more than two-thirds of the seats in the National Assembly, taking it away from chavism for the first time in a decade in December 2015.
Maduro regime has been harassing opposition lawmakers after losing the Assembly in late 2015. Lawmaker Ismael Leon was kidnapped supposedly by regime agents Tuesday morning and is still missing but reporters in Caracas heard that he is in one of the SEBIN intelligence service prisons in Caracas.
Lawmakers have said they were offered between $700,000 to $1.5 million and at least one has produced an audio recording of such an offer.
