Interior minister vows to prevent destabilization in Venezuela
Venezuela's Minister of the Interior and Justice said that in the "destabilization plans" recently found, the vice-president and congress' speaker are referred to as the "bus driver" and the "little lieutenant"
"Yesterday (Wednesday) we had to inform about another destabilization plan of the Venezuelan ultra right-wing (sic) at home, in combination with ultra right-wing actors abroad, intended to kill Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress's Speaker Diosdado Cabello. The two officials are referred to as the ‘little lieutenant' and the ‘bus driver,'" the minister noted.
"We will not let destabilization by the ultra right-wing to move even an inch. Police and intelligence services are on the alert. Security measures for comrades (Maduro and Cabello) have been reinforced," the minister remarked.
Additionally, following an attack against a crew of state-run TV channel VTV, Reverol said three people are under arrest.
