The Venezuelan Prosecutor has requested the arrest this Thursday of former ambassador Diego Arria and opponents Pedro Burelli and Ricardo Koesling for their involvement in an alleged magnicide plan against President Nicolas Maduro.
Luisa Ortega, Venezuela’s attorney general, told a state channel that has “called for the arrest of these citizens is ordered, which was agreed by the Court, after the first person who was cited (Pedro Burelli) did not appear in Public Ministry. ”
To support this claim, the leader of the Socialist Party (PSUV), Jorge Rodriguez showed several emails assumptions of opponent Maria Corina Machado.
In these emails it could read assumptions messages to different actors of the Venezuelan opposition, including Arria, noting that the time to accumulate and get financing efforts “to annihilate Maduro” had arrived.
In response to this accusation, Machado said that these messages are not hers and that she did not want to magnicide or coup d’etat but rather Maduro leaves.
