The Attorney General Office is to make Eduardo Lapi appear to the courthouse. The former governor of western Yaracuy state was arrested early Tuesday in the capital city of San Felipe.

Lapi has been charged with abuse of authority, circumvention of bidding and preliminary agreement to appoint contractors, the Attorney General Office said in a press release.

As stated in the press release, the bench warrant was substantiated with the last portion of Article 250, Organic Code of Criminal Procedure (COOP). This provision sets forth the arrest of an individual under investigation in "extremely necessary and urgent" cases.

Additionally, it was concluded that the defendant could flee the country, as he has not a established residence.

On Tuesday morning, the police made a raid in the house where Lapi was staying and took him to the headquarters of the Directorate for Intelligence, Security and Prevention (Disip).
