Venezuelan Regime’s Prosecutor Arrests Opposition Coordinator

Venezuelan regime’s main prosecutor announced on Wednesday afternoon that journalist and opposition activist Roland Carreño had been arrested, a couple of hours after interim President Juan Guaido denounced what he called the “forced disappearance” of the coordinator of the Voluntad Popular party.

Venezuelan regime’s main prosecutor announced on Wednesday afternoon that journalist and opposition activist Roland Carreño had been arrested, a couple of hours after interim President Juan Guaido denounced what he called the “forced disappearance” of the coordinator of the Voluntad Popular party.

On Twitter, Venezuelan regime’s Chief Prosecutor Tarek William Saab wrote that Carreño had been detained for alleged “participation in conspirative plans against the democratic peace” and his office had assigned a prosecutor to the case.

Voluntad Popular said on its Twitter account that Carreño was approached on Tuesday night by unidentified people in vehicles without license plates. The opposition party had been unable to confirm his location after that encounter, it added.

“He remains disappeared,” the interim president and opposition leader, wrote in a separate post on Twitter. “We alert the world about his forced disappearance and we hold the dictatorship responsible for his physical and mental integrity.”

Human rights groups say the socialist regime of dictator Nicolas Maduro frequently arrests opposition adversaries, often without due process, and in some cases leaves them incommunicado for hours or days.
