Featured Venezuela: 19 People Linked to Maduro Assassination Attempt

19 identified persons directly involved in the failed attempt against President Maduro.

Venezuelan Attorney General, Tarek William Saab, announced Wednesday that 19 individuals have been identified as being directly involved in the failed assassination attempt against the country's President Nicolás Maduro.

Two persons, who managed to escape authorities, among the group have also been identified and evidence linking them to the plot has been uncovered.

According to Saab, the first drone used in the attack was a modified DJI branded drone while the other was of an unknown origin. Both appeared to have been operated from a black vehicle, manned by the operators, who have since been apprehended.

Saab also detailed evidence linking Raider Ruso and former Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) colonel Oswaldo Garcia, who are located in Colombia and the United States respectively, to the attack.

"The Public Ministry will send requests to the United States and Colombia for their cooperation to extradite those involved in this act... For this reason, we are calling on the incoming government of Colombia to deliver these criminals to Venezuela," Saad said while explaining the agreements Venezuela has with both countries.

He also congratulated the Public Ministry and other government officials for their response to the incident while chiding those linked to the act.

"In Venezuela, those who want to win political spaces must do it with ideas, with proposals not with this type of acts," he said.
