Attorneys of Luis Velázquez Alvaray, former justice of the Constitutional Court, Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ), claimed that the Directorate for Intelligence, Security and Prevention (Disip) is "persecuting and intimidating" the former director of the Judiciary Steering Committee (DEM) and his family.
 
Since June 8th, when the National Assembly removed Velázquez Alvaray from his position, there has been no word on his whereabouts. On Monday, his lawyers would not disclose the place where Velázquez Alvaray is, but did argue that Disip is monitoring the house of Velázquez Alvaray -also a former lawmaker- and his family, both in Caracas and southwestern Barinas state.

They have even received threatening phone calls that their assets will be seized.

Velázquez Alvaray's attorneys insisted that a court issued a bench warrant against the former justice.

He and his family were aware of that," said the legislator in an interview with daily newspaper El Universal.
