WILLEMSTAD, CARACAS – The Supreme Court of Venezuela, through its president, Magistrate Maikel Moreno, requested the Kingdom of the Netherlands, specifically Curaçao, the extradition of Venezuelan citizens Archak Guerrino Badrossian Liberatoscioli (born in 1963) and Nathaly Elizabeth Gómez de Badrossian (born in 1974).
The purpose of the request is to submit these two to a criminal proceeding in Venezuela for their alleged participation in the crimes of fraud and association to commit crimes, typified and sanctioned in articles 462 of the Venezuelan Criminal Code and 37 of the Organic Law Against Organized Crime and Financing of Terrorism, respectively.
Also, in the decision of the Supreme Court, the firm commitment to the Kingdom of the Netherlands (Curaçao) is assumed, that both citizens will be judged solely for their alleged participation in the commission of the aforementioned crimes, with due guarantees enshrined in the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
Archak Guerrino Badrossian Liberatoscioli was arrested on May 8 of this year and was arraigned on May 9. Nathaly Elizabeth Gómez De Badrossian was not arrested because of her condition. The Public Prosecution did not want to comment on her condition.
On May 15, Liberatoscioli was freed because the local authorities have not received any formal documents from Venezuela.
According to sources, the couple is still on the island but their passports have not been seized so there is a chance they can escape before being rearrested for deportation.
