Rodríguez: They intended to assassinate President Maduro with four drones in Carabobo

Sectors of the Venezuelan extreme right wing wanted to attempt on the life of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, during the inauguration of the Monument to the 200 years of the Battle of Carabobo on June 22 in Campo de Carabobo (Carabobo Battlefield).

This was revealed this Tuesday by the president of the National Assembly (AN), Jorge Rodríguez, who assured that on that day “there was an attack with four drones against the activity”, which were deactivated by the Presidential Security team.

Rodríguez did not offer further details because the investigations of the case are still being developed, although he advanced his relationship with the CTU Security company, the same company that hired the mercenaries who assassinated the president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, on July 7.

It is worth noting that CTU Security is a company of the Venezuelan operator Antonio Intriago who, together with Iván Duque, organized the invasion of Venezuela by Cúcuta on February 23, 2019, under the excuse of the Venezuela Aid Live alleged humanitarian concert.

Rodríguez added that the fugitive from justice Leopoldo López is behind this and all the plans that generate anxiety, since, as he said, “we have noticed that there is a compulsion from López to attempt violent actions on national dates”.

The announcement was made during a press conference from the Federal Legislative Palace, in which were unveiled new elements of the plans that the extremist right wing, together with the Colombian government, is managing against Venezuela.

During this day, Rodríguez showed evidence of the conversations that fugitive Leopoldo López had with leaders of Voluntad Popular (VP) to generate violence in the southwest of Caracas, from Cota 905, in coordination with criminal gangs in the sector, in a plan they called “La Fiesta de Caracas” (Caracas’s Party).

This violent strategy was coordinated by López with Freddy Guevara, Gilber Caro, Emilio Graterol, Hasler Iglesias and two other VP activists at Cota 905.
