Venezuela: Guaido taking refuge in European embassy

Government official accuses opposition leader of being linked to failed raid by US ‘mercenaries’

BOGOTA, Colombia

Diosdado Cabello, the number two man in the Venezuelan government said opposition leader Juan Guaido is taking refuge in a European embassy to avoid arrest by the prosecutor's office.

"He has already chosen the embassy where he wants to go, it is European. He knows what I am talking about because he already sent some suitcases,” Cabello said during a television show late Tuesday. “What will those suitcases have?"

Guaido is accused by the Nicolas Maduro government of being linked to a failed raid Sunday and several attempts at a "coup d'état" in the last two years, for which he was called to testify before the prosecutor's office last March but did not appear.

The government said the raids Sunday that led to the capture of two American “mercenaries” were intended to assassinate Maduro.

1. He Might Be Wise To Do So, Ma'am

But he does not seem to have done it yet, by this account. Telegraphing intent by sending luggage ahead seems very foolish. Interception would be a simple matter for any security body loyal to Maduro's government.
