The Cape Verdean authorities have prevented one of Álex Saab’s attorneys from entering the country, an alleged front man for the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, who was arrested at the request of the United States.

The reason claimed by the authorities to prevent Saab’s attorney from entering the country was “unable to justify the reason for the trip,” according to a statement from the law firm ILOCAD.

In this way, they have stated that the lawyer was deported twice while trying to get from Nelson Mandela International Airport in the state capital, Praia, to Cape Verde, where he sought legal advice to Saab.
