Arrest warrant for 13 dissidents in Venezuela

Venezuelan Chief Public Prosecutor Tarek William Saab stated in his statement that “arrest warrants” have been issued for 13 dissidents on charges of “money laundering, treason, causing economic damage to the state and conspiracy”.

Recalling the arrest warrant for opposition leader Juan Guaido, the former Speaker of the National Assembly (AN), who lives in the USA, Saab said that they are working to extradite these people to the country in international cooperation.

It was noted that among those for whom an arrest warrant was issued, there were members of the team of Maria Corina Machado, who is expected to be the opposition presidential candidate in the general elections planned to be held next year in the country.

Dissident Machado, who reacted “harshly” to the decision, criticized the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

Machado said, “These are already obvious things. I will repeat, our route is the route of citizen organization. It will take us to the route where free and competitive elections will be held. All members of this organization are devoted to this task. This is the desperate struggle of a regime that knows it will be defeated. Fear, disaster And if they think it will demoralize you, I want you to know that they are wrong.” he said.

On the other hand, it was shared that an arrest warrant was issued for Andres Izarra and Rafael Ramirez, ministers of the time of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
