Venezuelan prosecutors have announced “terrorism” and “treason” charges against prominent opposition politician, Freddy Guevara, after intelligence agents arrested him from his car on a Caracas highway. Attorney General Tarek Saab said that Guevara was detained by members of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service due to “his links with extremist and paramilitary groups associated with the Colombian government”. A spokesperson for opposition leader Juan Guaido’s office said Guevara, who was pardoned less than a year ago on 2017 charges of instigating violence, was taken to the Sebin intelligence service’s Helicoide prison in Caracas.
