The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, revealed that last year, a total of four coup plans planned by the Venezuelan right in collaboration with US organizations from Colombia and Miami failed.
The head of state pointed out that the conspiracies were found in the months of May, August, November, and December 2023, where those involved are both nationals acting together with foreign elements.
He said the destabilizing actions were planned by Miami and Colombia. “The CIA and DEA offices in Colombia continue to operate against Venezuela,” he warned.
He stated that in the actions of the four conspirators, which will soon be revealed and detailed, they have the intention of killing President Maduro, Minister Padrino López, and important leaders of the country to interrupt the peace process in Venezuela.
He emphasized that one of the conspiracies to kill him was noticed after the controversial statements of Antonio Ledezma, where he said, “We have soldiers, and they will act.” After the incident, an officer who was in charge of the attack was noticed.
He announced that the high officials of Táchira and Zulia were bought by the Venezuelan right, in collusion with organizations from other countries, to attack the life of the Head of State. However, intelligence efforts were able to alert them in time about the plot and foil the maneuver.
The last conspiracy was the attack on the military barracks on January 1 in Táchira, with deserted soldiers, mercenaries, and some bought soldiers. The main mission of the plan was to kill Freddy Bernal, governor of Táchira. He said it was a group of mercenaries brought from Colombia to arrest and kill the governor. All those responsible are in prison, convicted and confessed
The president congratulated the intelligence agencies and the loyalty of the Armed Forces for the work done in uncovering these assassination plans. “The great guarantee of peace is to continue defeating conspiracies.”
“Do not forget that the plan of Bolivarian anger is activated 24 hours a day. That is the plan that will be fulfilled if any of their plans are fulfilled,” he warned.
