Members of the U.S. Congress said that the recent arrests of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro's nephews are proof of his administration's corruption.
"If reports are accurate, few who have observed the declining situation in Venezuela should be surprised by this most recent news," said Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, according to a statement issued to Fox News Latino. "The level of corruption and impunity has reached the highest circles of power there and I'm pleased it is now getting international scrutiny."
Franqui Francisco Flores-de Freitas and Efrain Antonio Campo-Flores were arrested and were flown into New York on Tuesday to face charges. Both individuals are nephews of Maduro's wife, Venezuelan First Lady Cilia Flores, Reuters reported from a source close to the Flores family.
