Juan Guaidó, the former interim president of Venezuela and leader of the opposition, has reported that the regime of Nicolas Maduro is planning to arrest him in the coming hours. Guaidó made the announcement in a video posted on his social media accounts on April 2, amidst a series of arrests of officials and personalities close to chavism, who have been accused of corruption in the state oil company PDVSA and other public entities.
In the video, Guaidó revealed that he has received information from three separate sources that Maduro's regime intends to issue a warrant for his arrest on false charges, possibly along with other opposition figures. The accusation is apparently related to the company Monómeros, which Maduro's regime seeks to auction off, but which Guaidó considers to be Venezuelan patrimony. Guaidó emphasized that his government had investigated accusations of corruption in the company, ordered external audits, and held the management accountable.
Guaidó also accused Maduro's regime of bearing a grudge against him because of his defiance from the outset of his presidency. He argued that the regime seeks to persecute him and change the focus of attention after the recent confession of corruption that has left the country in ruins. According to Guaidó, the confession shows that the country's problems have nothing to do with sanctions or blockades, but with looting by Maduro and his supporters.
Guaidó directed a message to Maduro, stating that he and his supporters will continue fighting for a free and democratic Venezuela. He called on Maduro to stop the persecution and intimidation of opposition figures and to accept that the people of Venezuela do not want him in power. Guaidó also reminded Maduro that his electoral prospects are bleak, and urged him to leave the country for Cuba or Russia, so that Venezuelans can live in peace.
It should be noted that Guaidó's interim government was dissolved in December 2022 by the majority of former deputies who had previously supported him in 2019.

It is purely a legal question of whether there is a case to answer.
Unlike Argentina, the judicial process in the UK is not controlled by politicians.
But don’t worry it will be years before he has exhausted his appeals to UK then European courts.
And then when he is finally in the US it will take a few more years before they decide what they are going to do.
All in all I bet he wishes he’d gone back to Sweden and faced the music there, whatever the outcome he would have been a free man years ago.
So, difficult to feel sorry for him as all this is as a result of conscious decisions he has made, that have backfired on him.
‘PERFIDIOUS ALBION’ is it, you thieving, racist, Malvinazi, Argy F*ck.
PERFIDIOUS ALBION strikes again, UK courts deliver a body blow to Argentina trying to get out of paying what it owes.Apr 05th, 2023 - 01:30 pm +1
Smart move really, writing up the contracts in London, a fortune in work for solicitors, who don’t come cheap, not to mention exorbitant court fees.
So, a very bad result for Argentina but a very profitable one for the English legal system.
Remarkable that Argentina can afford to waste money on this scale, considering:
‘south American nation’s economy that’s on the brink of another recession this year and is saddled with some of the world’s highest inflation. A historic drought is making matters worse.’
Probably a good think really, otherwise they would have only spent the money on printing maps of the S. Atlantic coloured blue, like that changes anything.
Funny how the USA lost interest in him, reminds me of the words Under throw bus the but not necessarily in that order lolApr 04th, 2023 - 07:11 pm -2
