The three opposition members of Venezuela no longer obtained judicial immunity for allegedly supporting the attempted military change. On the 9th, they sought refuge in foreign embassies in the capital, Caracas.
A number of sources confirmed to Reuters that Richard Branco, a member of the National Congress of Venezuela, sought refuge from the Argentine Embassy. Americo de Gracia and Maria Nella Magalhas sought refuge from the Italian Embassy.
The Venezuelan government has not responded for the time being. The Italian Foreign Ministry confirmed in a statement on the 10th that De Gracia entered the Italian Embassy.
Including the three men, including Branco, 10 opposition legislators in accordance with the Venezuela Supreme Court found support for the small-scale mutiny led by the opposition sergeant Juan Guaido on April 30, suspected of “treason, collusion, and incitement Rebellion.” The Constitutional Assembly subsequently deprived them of their judicial immunity. The law enforcement department arrested Edgar Sambrano, vice chairman of the National Congress, on the 8th.
The opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, who also participated in the attempted mutiny, is believed to have taken refuge in the residence of the Spanish diplomat.
The Venezuelan opposition coalition won control of the National Congress, the Parliament at the end of 2015, and continued to attack the government led by President Nicolas Maduro. The government has not recognized the National Congress since 2016. The Supreme Court ruled in early 2017 that the parliament was in an illegal state. Maduro launched the constitutional convention in May of the same year and reconstituted the constitution.
As the chairman of the National Congress, Guaido identified the Constitutional Assembly as illegal and demanded that Maduro step down. On January 23 this year, he announced his appointment as the “interim president.” On the 9th, he identified the government’s constant pressure on opposition lawmakers to seek to “dissolve the parliament.”
