Maduro: Video Shows Ties Between Venezuela Opposition, Colombia

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said 30 groups appear to be trained and financed by Colombia to destabilize Venezuela.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro revealed a video Tuesday that shows links between leading figures of the country’s right wing opposition and colombian paramilitary groups.

In his weekly television program, Maduro showed a video exposing 30 groups trained and financed by the former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe to destabilize Venezuela.

In the video, Jose Perez Venta confesses he was involved in the murder of Liana Hergueta.

“We have identified 30 groups trained and financed by Uribe from Colombia,” Maduro said. “We will capture all paramilitary groups who want to hurt Venezuela.”

According, to Maduro they were ordered to kill Venezuela’s political opponent Leopoldo Lopez in order to stir chaos in the country.

“Why did they want to kill Leopoldo Lopez? To blame the Bolivarian Revolution,” he said referring to Venezuela’s progressive people’s movement that came out of Hugo Chavez’s presidency.

The murder of Liana Hergueta has shaken Venezuela. The woman’s body was found dismembered and the Interior Minister Gustavo Gonzalez had previously said her murder was politically-motivated.

Officials from the Ministry of Justice suspect that Hergueta was killed for political reasons by groups connected to paramilitaries.
