SILVA: Heads back to Madrid since being expelled

THE Spanish ambassador to Venezuela has been expelled for committing ‘continuous aggressions’ towards the socialist government.

Jesus Silva, had been ambassador to Caracas since March 2017 before the Venezuelan government declared him ‘persona non grata’.

This comes after the EU issued sanctions against seven senior Venezuelan officials including freezing their bank accounts and a ban on travelling to the EU.

Venezuela ‘has decided to declare persona non grata the ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain to Venezuela… owing to its continuous aggression and repeated acts of interference in the internal affairs of our country,’ the foreign ministry said in a statement.
