El Salvador’s government has ordered Venezuelan diplomats out of the country. The diplomatic corps was given 48 hours to exit the country, according to a tweet sent by President Nayib Bukele on Sunday.

President Bukele’s government has previously declared that it does not recognize the legitimacy of Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

Bukele explained that his government is expecting to receive a new diplomatic envoy appointed by opposition leader Juan Guaido. He said the Salvadoran government recognizes Guaido as the interim president “until free elections are held”

El Salvador is among a dozen of countries including the US, Colombia, Brazil and Chile who recognize Guaido as Venezuela’s leader after he declared himself interim president earlier this year.

Ronald Johnson, the US ambassador to El Salvador, backed Mr. Bukele’s declaration. “We applaud the government of Nayib Bukele for ensuring that El Salvador is on the right side of history by recognising Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela,” he said.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
