Beatriz Becker, a former member of the European Parliament, criticized on Thursday a letter of appreciation sent by the International Committee of the Cross to Iris Varel for her co-operation during a visit by ICRC President Peter Maurer.
"What a shame. Do you acknowledge and thank the tyrant's missionaries who for years allowed Venezuela to starve and starve, denying the entrance of any help?" A decent ministry "is the one of high-ranking thugs? I suppose the European Union and Federica Mogherini have something to say, "Becker said to Twitter.
The letter from the International Red Cross to Varela was broadcast by Venezuelan journalist Karla Angola, who accused the official of being "head of collectives and gates in Venezuela"
What a shame, @CICR_ve
They recognize and thank the followers of the tyrant who for years let him die of hunger and difficulty #Venezuela, Denial of entry to any help? "Dignity Ministry" of High Thugs?
I guess that #UE there's something to say, @FedericaMog? https://t.co/JZ0ckaun52
