President Maduro has presented a video with an audio he claims is evidence of a coup attempt against him. “It is necessary that we all watch this video so we can build the necessary antibodies to repel these fascist attacks.”
According to the Agencia Venezolana de Noticias the audio was recorded via Skype on January 7 in New York.
The video shows the picture of Carlos Osuna Saraco, a Venezuelan lawyer, and carries the voice of a person, presumably Osuna Saraco, reading a coup manifesto deposing Maduro and his government.
Telesur, in a report published online, claims that Osuna Saraco is a friend of opposition leader Antonio Ledezma.
“We are still today dismantling the coup. I have to warn our people and the world: Nobody should be overconfident! There is too much held back hatred among the minorities!” said maduro.
