The US government on Wednesday strongly recommended “all the parties in Venezuela to abstain from violence” following the attacks on Tuesday on the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) and the Ministry of the Interior.
A spokesperson of the US Department of State told Efe that the US government keeps on refusing any kind of violence in Venezuela, while blasting “the efforts of President Nicolás Maduro to nullify the Venezuelan Constitution and convene an illegitimate Constituent Assembly.”
An agent of the Venezuelan scientific police, identified as Óscar Pérez, stole on Tuesday a helicopter, flew over the capital city and presumably hurled grenades at the TSJ and the Ministry of the Interior in Caracas.
The Attorney General Office announced on Wednesday the commencement of an investigation into the action, claimed by the police agent in Instagram social network, through a video where he confessed his attempt at toppling Maduro’s government.
Maduro reacted by hinting the use of arms in retaliation.
