The British funding’s beneficiaries have been promoting 243 projects whose details remain hidden from the public. The results of their actions, however, are reported quarterly to the U.K.embassy in Caracas.
The money transfer started in 2019 when the FCDO awarded £250,000 for the creation of an “anti-corruption coalition.” Subsequently, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s administration granted a further £200,000 to Transparencia Venezuela.
“The coalition is run by some of the country’s most outspoken individuals and groups opposed to Maduro’s leftist government,” independent outlet Daily Maverick recalled.
“The U.K. and U.S. governments recognize opposition figure Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president and have openly sought to remove Maduro from office,” it added. (TELESUR)
