MADRID, Feb. 13 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, has assured that the “kidnapping” of his uncle, Juan José Márquez, accused of entering Venezuela with explosives, is due to the confrontation between two blocks of the “dictatorship” of Nicolás Maduro and He has advocated dismantling the “farce.”
Márquez is in pretrial detention, after the track was lost after landing Monday in Caracas with his nephew. According to the Chavista leader Diosdado Cabello, he was trying to introduce “very dangerous” material into Venezuela, including a flashlight with a C4 explosive hidden inside.
Guaidó has defended in a series of tweets that “the airport security protocol of European authorities is clear and strict” and has challenged Cabello to demonstrate that the TAP airline, which would have taken both from Lisbon to Caracas, failed to comply with the regulations.
Cabello has announced the opening of a TAP investigation and accused the Portuguese ambassador in Venezuela, Carlos Sousa Amaro, of trying to intercede on behalf of Márquez. The Portuguese Government, meanwhile, has denied having contacts with the Guaidó team on its last scale in Lisbon, according to the public network RTP.
“If the usurper wants to impose his matrix, he will have to face the corroborated version of a serious government,” said the head of the National Assembly, who has called to “dismantle his farce.”
In this regard, he pointed out that an “effective intelligence work” has allowed his team to gather evidence that Márquez's detention “is a consequence of the confrontation between two political blocs of the dictatorship,” although he has not entered into more details in this regard. .
“They have begun to cannibalize. They are divided into their goals and now they don't know how to get out of it,” he said.
