Guido also said that the Republic’s authorities are afraid to arrest him and therefore the attack on his supporters. “Since they [the authorities] cannot arrest the interim President [Juan Guaido], they seek his loved ones, threaten them and kidnap them. Nicolas Maduro or does not dare to put me in jail, or does not send me law enforcement authorities”, — said Guaido.
According to the opposition, the arrest of his Secretary Robert Marrero is “an insult not only to Juan Guaido, the National Assembly [unicameral Parliament], Venezuelans and the Constitution, but also to the entire democratic world.”
