The Bolivarian revolution tightens its grip on the democratic Parliament when only three weeks remain until the momentous election of the National Assembly (AN) board of directors. Juan Guaidó, legislative president who also intends to continue in 2020 as president in charge, led last night (early morning in Spain) the rescue of Deputy Yanet Fermín.
Agents of the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (Dgcim) had previously besieged the house of the parliamentarian, who has immunity, to take her detained without having any court order or anything similar, something common in the conduct of government forces. The deputy asked for help through her social networks and until there Guaidó, the assembly members Delsa Solórzano and Adriana Pichardo and human rights lawyers moved. Together they managed to break the fence.
The surprising Chavista operative happens only hours after the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) advanced the raid of the immunity of four other deputies, among them Jorge Millán, who appears as first vice president in the candidacy of Guaidó . The final objective of this offensive is that Guaidó does not add enough votes to continue leading the democratic Parliament.
The new victims of the revolution are the deputies Millán (First Justice, party of Foreign Minister Borges and former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles), Hernán Alemán (Democratic Action), Carlos Lozano (Camina regionalist party) and Luis Stefanelli (Popular Will). The Plenary Chamber of the TSJ will meet on Monday to begin the process against it . They are accused of treason, conspiracy, civil rebellion and other alleged political crimes.
"With all these acts they will not be able to intimidate me or break my fighting spirit. Neither you, Nicolás Maduro, nor your combo of murderers will be able to break my principles," Fermin said hours later. Even after resolving the first attack, the Dgcim agents continued to harass the parliamentarian, who militates in Popular Will (VP), Guaidó and Leopoldo López's party, currently a refugee at the Spanish Embassy in Caracas.
The military intended to transfer the deputy to the headquarters of the Dgcim, the same place where in summer the corvette captain Rafael Acosta was tortured until his death, a crime that went around the world and caused the denunciation of the agencies of human rights.
"We are not going to allow more intimidation here! Deputies, neighbors and citizens we rescue Deputy Yanet Fermín and fruit the onslaught of the dictatorship. Neither Dgcim nor the false TSJ will harass us. We will put our chest on behalf of our people," he said. Guaidó after the rescue operation.
The resurgence of the Chavista persecution, which has already caused the exile of about twenty parliamentarians, has substantially modified the composition of Parliament. The return of half a hundred Chavez deputies to the hemicycle and the opposition losses caused by the Bolivarian harassment, added to the bribes of recent weeks to parliamentarians who now say they are critical of Guaidó, hinder a re-election that was taken for granted.
This week, about twenty parties from the Democratic Unit and its surroundings sealed their support for the president in charge. And among them the so-called G-4, which total 84 of the 167 deputies that make up the AN.
" The regime seeks that it is not Guaidó who repeats . They are looking to intimidate us with the detention of the deputies. If they stop me, for example, nobody could occupy the seat on January 5," the deputy and former deputy tells EL MUNDO political prisoner Renzo Prieto, leader of VP. In Venezuela there is a complex system of deputies with a substitute, who is not even from the same party. An example: Prieto is a substitute for Gaby Arellano, exiled in Colombia. If he is arrested, no one will vote for the area of Táchira, a border state with Colombia, for which both were elected in a kind of electoral ticket. One less vote for Guaidó.
" Right now they see no chance of winning by voting for an alternative candidate , as they intended. And that's why they have started the persecution again," concludes Prieto.
