The Venezuelan Attorney General’s Office said Thursday that it opened an investigation into opposition leader Juan Guaidó for the crime of a coup d’état.

The opening of the process was announced by the attorney general, Tarek William Saab, who indicated in his Twitter account that he opened the process to Guaidó, retired Major General Clíver Alcalá Cordones and other collaborators for an alleged “attempted coup d’état” against President Nicolás Maduro.

The announcement of the process comes a day after the Minister of Communication, Jorge Rodríguez, denounced an alleged plot that was being promoted from Colombia to attack Maduro and other government figures in the midst of the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

On the same day, in the morning, the US government announced that it had filed charges against Maduro and his closest associates, accusing them of turning Venezuela into a criminal emporium at the service of drug traffickers and terrorists.
