The silence maintained by the government of Nicholas Maduro as parliamentary immunity was overturned by National Assembly President and Venezuelan Chief Juan Guido indicating the inability to execute his detention and the terror that he believes such action is a lethal maneuver, Evans, Chavez's political scientist and dissident, and Daniel Arias, political analyst.
The CEO launched a counter-attack against the interim president on March 21, when he halted Roberto Marrero, the head of his cabinet. On the 28th of the same month, he was disqualified from statehood for 15 years, and after 5 days, on 2 April, the constituent National Assembly declared parliamentary immunity at the request of the Supreme Court and authorized the prosecution to initiate a study process. Twenty-three days passed, and even the ruling elite did not do the arrest.
According to Evans, the government of Chavista-Madurista is pressed, which makes him behave like an early beast who seems to be ferocious when in fact in a situation of risk, really affected and weak, so he maintains constant threats and persecutions. against the president and his surroundings.
"This is the weakest moment that exists in terms of power, institutionality and the international context of the entire Chavista-Madurista regime. That's why threats based on Guaido's detention are precisely these threats, "he said.
He stressed that if the executive, which according to the National Assembly assigns functions, wanted to stop it, he would act, given that the lawmaker made an international tour that abolished the ban imposed by the Supreme Court and continues to execute executive functions.
"Guaido has become too important to be attacked directly, outside parliamentary immunity, he has political immunity from his leadership, which, of course, is fragile because of state terrorism but is politically sound," he added.
For Arias, past actions were the expectation of a political move in order to try to break the international pressure that Allied countries are pushing the president to generate the exit of Maduro.
He explained that the government would stop Juan Guaydo just as the last option: "To decapitate the opposition commando, forged around him, to leave the opposition a public opinion orphaned as a leader."
He added, "They have not arrested him for fear of a violent military response from the Americans, so they are arrested until an irreversible situation arises, such as the arrest of a leader of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, or the recent arrival of troops with humanitarian aid.
Politologists have not ruled out the continuation of repressive actions and the persecution against any citizen who joined the opposition route, which includes the cessation of usurpation, the transitional government and the free elections, as happened on April 12th. with the workers of the Central Bank of Venezuela who met with Guaidó.
"Surprisingly, despite the persecution, people want to meet him and the detainees remain firm in their position; this clearly shows that there is an important compromise capacity and is aware of the risk that goes in the search for a return of democracy, "Evans said.
Is the investigation process legal?
The Plenary Chamber of the CSG requested the ANC on April 1 to ban the legislature and the Ministry of State's immunity from starting the investigation. "The full chamber acts unconstitutional, so the request or the permission is irritating and invalid," said lawyer Joel Garcia.
He explained that as Guaidó enjoys immunity, the procedure is inadequate: the lawmaker, the criminal act holder and the director of each investigation must file a report to the entire Supreme Court Chamber declaring that he is well served and the highest court must demand immunity from the Legislative Parliament, the only body having powers and powers under Article 200 of Magna Carta and 24 of the Rules of the Home Affairs and AN's debates, in order to reduce the immunity of everyone MP.
"The issue is not in the investigation, but who authorizes it and how it is empowered, what is unconstitutional and therefore everything that results from it is invalid If the way of investigating and imposing immunity is completely unconstitutional, everything that derives from it , is unconstitutional, "he said.
