CARACAS, Venezuela. – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro reported on Tuesday that he will request an international red alert for the capture of former Attorney General Luisa Ortega and her husband German Ferrer.
Both are fugitives from the Venezuelan justice because they committed several crimes related to an extortion and corruption network, so the formal request for their search and detention to the international police will be made, the President said.
Maduro also acknowledged that Ortega’s treason to the Bolivarian Revolution was a surprise for him, and revealed she worked with the American government.
The Venezuelan President highlighted that imperialism and its allies fear the plenipotentiary character of the Constituent Assembly, because according to the Constitution it attributes to the people´s original power and their wisdom the transcendental decisions for a harmonious development in peace and tranquility.
