When clarifying that both former officials have been singled out for the crimes of aggravated corruption and conspiracy, the representative of the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic valued that “they are attacking the people in the midst of the imperial siege we are experiencing.”
“Grillet Álvarez had promised to carry out actions of sabotage, terrorism, theft of classified information; as well as facilitating access of extremist groups to the facilities of the National Assembly “, detailed Tarek William Saab, who added that” he worked as a security officer in the Division of Prevention and Control of Losses of the National Assembly. “
The frustrated attack on the National Assembly is part of the terrorist attack against the nation of Venezuela. The plan was organized by the Venezuelan extreme right with international support, including from the Colombian Government, where it was intended in the last days of December and early 2021 to prevent the installation of the highest legislative body.
