The court decided to detain American citizens, Luke Alexander Denman and Ayran Berry.
Two U.S. citizens accused of participating in a supposedly unsuccessful attempt at a naval invasion were sent to Venezuela. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Supreme Court of Venezuela on Sunday, May 10. “The National Court of Terrorism Cases ordered the detention of American citizens Luke Alexander Denman and Ayran Berry for the alleged commission of a crime related to terrorism, illegal traffic weapons, “the report said.
Earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Venezuela issued 22 arrest warrants for alleged participants in the failed naval invasion. Silvercorp PMC head Jordan Goodro, opposition MP from the opposition team Juan Guido Sergio Vergara and Miami political consultant Juan Jose Rendon, accused of organizing the attack, are put on the international wanted list.
Recall, on May 3, the Venezuelan authorities reported that they managed to prevent the entry of a group of mercenaries from Colombia, which intended to carry out a coup in the republic and kill President Nicolas Maduro.
Maduro himself accused US President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Michael Pompeo of organizing an invasion of Venezuela.
In turn, Trump said that the mercenaries arrested in Venezuela have nothing to do with the United States.
