Venezuela calls for the arrest of the opposition National Assembly

The Attorney General of Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, announced Monday that he requested the arrest of the new board of directors of the opposition National Assembly elected in 2015.

Saab indicated that arrest warrants have already been issued for Dinorah Figuera, Marianella Fernandez and Auristela Vásquez for the crimes of usurpation of functions, treason and money laundering and illicit association.

The Public Ministry also requested a red alert from Interpol and the seizure of their assets, the blocking and immobilization of accounts, and the prohibition to dispose of and encumber assets.

He also requested the arrest of José Figueredo Márquez, secretary, and Luis Alberto Bustos, undersecretary of the opposition Assembly. None of them are in Venezuela.

The Undersecretary for Western Hemisphere Affairs of the United States, Brian Nichols, commented on the arrest warrants on Twitter and assured that his country is on the side of those who defend Venezuelan democracy. He added that attacks on the opposition prevent democratic solutions.
