So we have some news from Venezuela.
00:01
Apparently a human rights attorney,
00:03
Rocio. San Miguel was detained in Venezuela for suspicion of conspiracy
00:07
against the President Nicolas Maduro.
00:09
And so San Miguel and her five relatives were detained,
00:12
including her daughter and ex husband.
00:14
And the crazy thing is that her attorney says they cannot locate
00:18
them, so they're off the grid.
00:21
However, at least one of the detainees was found in Boeta
00:25
Detention Center, but that place is actually known for torture,
00:30
but she's not there.
00:32
Maybe they're hiding her.
00:33
So again, one is there.
00:36
So are we now?
00:37
And Venezuela Attorney General said San Miguel and others are presumably
00:41
involved in the white bracelet conspiracy to allegedly kill President Maduro.
00:47
So he said semi has tried to treason,
00:49
conspiracy and terrorism. Dang.
00:52
That's chaos. That's a mess.
00:57
She's a human rights attorney,
00:58
but it's like the president thinks that but she's out to get
01:02
him. They might be a bole,
01:04
they might not. But I mean,
01:09
the fact that they're not.
01:11
Yeah, like their attorney can't find them,
01:12
they can't locate them.
01:14
It's like sauce. We always know that there's some sketchy
01:17
stuff going on. So UN casa,
01:20
guess we'll be following this issue as it goes on.
01:24
Hopefully they're able to locate them.
