Police arrest more terrorists who failed to infiltrate into Venezuela
Caracas, May 10 (Prensa Latina) Venezuela's Special Actions Forces arrested on Monday three other terrorists involved in the failed maritime incursion on May 3 aiming to perpetrate assassination and a coup d'état.
The operation was carried out in Colonia Tovar, located in Aragua, as part of the deployment of the Bolivarian government's security forces to preserve the country's sovereignty and stability.
According to a report by the Venezuelan police force, one of the three mercenaries is first sergeant of the Bolivarian National Guard Evan Rincon, who had betrayed the army.
Up to date, over twenty members of these paramilitary group have been arrested, including US citizens Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who had been hired by the Silvercorp company, which signed a contract with a sector of the Venezuelan extreme right to carry out violent actions against the Nicolas Maduro Government.
According to Venezuela's Minister of Communication and Information Jorge Rodriguez, the deal signed between the opposition leader Juan Guaido - recognized by Washington as interim president - and the military contractor Jordan Goudreau, included the murder of President Maduro and other top leaders.
Such a deal included a payment of 212 million dollars to Silvercorp, led by Goudreau, for the arrest and assassination of Maduro; in addition to the deployment of an occupying force while the Guaido government were installed.
