Problem
The purpose of the is petition is to call on the Bank of England to refrain from any contact with representatives from the Venezuelan Finance Ministry or the Venezuelan Central Bank where said individuals position have not been ratified by the Venezuelan National Assembly and / or are subject to international sanctions.

Mr Simon Zerpa has been sanctioned by the US Treasury Department for corruption. Mr Calixto Ortega Sanchez position as President of the Venezuelan Central Bank has not been ratified by the Venezuelan National Assembly.

It is our belief that any meeting by the Bank of England to discuss the transference of assets held by the Bank of England on behalf of the good people of Venezuela will pose significant reputational risk to the Bank and may be in violation of US Treasury imposed sanctions.

This issue has been raised by the Member of Parliament for Northampton South, Andrew Lewer, who has called on the Governor of the Bank of England and the Chancellor of the Exchequer to reject any meeting requests under these circumstances and to decline any asset transfer unless formally approved by the Venezuelan National Assembly.

Also members of the Venezuelan opposition have already written to Mark Carney, urging on the BoE governor to refuse the request arguing “Without doubt the intention of Maduro and his regime is to steal these resources that rightly belong to the people, either for their own personal gain, or to finance further repression of the people”

Solution
The Bank of England to refrain from any contact with representatives from the Venezuelan Finance Ministry or the Venezuelan Central Bank where said individuals position have not been ratified by the Venezuelan National Assembly and / or are subject to international sanctions.
