Venezuela requests the Dominican Republic extradition of those involved in coup d'état

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, requested on Wednesday the extradition of General Eduardo José Báez Torrealba, for his participation in the attempted coup that would take place between June 23 and 24.
“I make the opportunity to publicly and respectfully request President Danilo Medina to capture him (Báez), according to international extradition treaties, and for him to be deported to Venezuela to be prosecuted for the crimes of this fascist coup”, said the head of state in a joint radio and television broadcast from the Bicentennial Square of Miraflores Palace, in Caracas.
Earlier, the National Government revealed a new attempt at a coup d’état aimed at attacking the life of the National Head of State and several members of the Government.
This plan -denounced by the Minister for Communication and Information, Jorge Rodríguez-, was financed by the governments of Colombia and Chile and had the participation of retired members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB).
Rodriguez said that the details and information of this coup plot were obtained by an operation carried out by the State Intelligence Agency for 14 months and with which they obtained 56 hours of videos, meetings and conferences with the intention of assassinating political and social leaders to overthrow the president, Nicolás Maduro.
