(TELESUR) – The Venezuelan lawmaker and self-proclaimed “interim president”, Juan Guaido arrived at the Maiquetia airport Monday without any obstacles.
The opposition lawmaker was banned from leaving the country as an investigation is going on over his attempt to usurp governmental powers with the backing of interventionist United States.
Guaido secretly left Venezuela for Colombia, in violation of a Supreme Court order in February 22nd after proclaiming himself the so called “interim president.” From Colombia, he traveled to Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, and Paraguay.
“He can’t just come and go. He will have to face justice, and justice prohibited him from leaving the country,” Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said last week. Vice president Delcy Rodriguez also addressed the issue during her visit to Moscow on March 01 and said the Venezuelan government will take actions.
“Such actions are prosecuted by criminal law. Also, there is a regulatory framework that our authorities are guided by. And they are already taking the necessary measures and will continue to protect our state of law and order,” she said.
Despite being banned from leaving the country, Guaido crossed the Venezuela-Colombia border and illegally attemped to enter USAID truckloads without the Venezuelan government approval.
Afterwards, he traveled to Latin America and met with right-wing politicians who are supporting the coup attempt in Venezuela against the legitimate President Nicolas Maduro who is the democratically elected president of the country.
