Blackout Venezuela: Guaido “Under Investigation for Electrical Sabotage”



___di  Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio for VT Italia


At noon (5 pm in Italy) today, Tuesday 12 March, the Venezuelan public prosecutor, Tarek William Saab announced that the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Venezuela has launched an investigation against Juan Guaidó , deputy of the Asemblea Nacional  in office since 2016, for its alleged involvement in the sabotage of the electricity system from that country. 

The provision, which was communicated to the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) , was taken against the opposition leader to investigate his possible intellectual paternity in the events that struck the Venezuelan population from Thursday 7 March.

Exactly as requested by President Nicola Maduro, the magistracy therefore wants to see clearly about the 5 sabotages with cyber, cyber and explosive attacks on power stations and stations of the electric network.

“We started a new investigation, which is added to the initial ones on January 29, on citizen Juan Guaidó for his alleged involvement in an attack on the electricity system,” said the attorney general, as reported by the TV network Telesur . 

William Saab also explained that this investigation goes hand in hand with that for the reference to criminal acts that Guaidò would have made on the “justification of violence or even incitement to looting, incitement to looting, robbery, under the pretext of needs economic, in messages to the population “.

The official note of the Government of Venezuela he had communicated a few hours before that “electric sabotage is not a casual event, it is part of an increasingly desperate climb to overthrow a legitimately constituted government”.

It should be remembered that already the previous leader of Voluntad Popular, Leopoldo Lopez, mentor of Guaidò, ended up under investigation and was then sentenced to 13 years and 9 months in prison (in January 2019 converted to house arrest) for instigating violence. In the square demonstrations in 2014, even more than in recent ones, there were dozens of victims and thousands of wounded.

Since then a significant part, though not the majority, of the protesters was acting with arsonist, molotov and other rudimentary urban guerrilla fireworks similar to those of the infamous black-blocks. Real explosive attacks were also organized against Policía Nacional Bolivariana (Pnb), Gnb (Guardia Nacional) and Fanb (Fuerza Armada Nacional) agents. Scenarios more from civil war than from political protest of the square.


“The cruel attack that the American empire has carried out against the electricity system has been detected, contained and progressively reversed, thanks to the efforts of Venezuelan experts and hackers who maintain intense work to restore peace to people. I assure that the cybernetic attack against the Venezuelan people has been carried out with a technology that has only the government of the EEUU (Estados Unidos – Usa) .

You cannot call political strife attacking the electricity system, taking away the tranquility and the right to life to millions of Venezuelans. It’s called a criminal coup. It’s a serious violation of human rights! ”

At 9pm on Monday 11 March, two in Italy in the morning , Nicolas Maduro , president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuelahe went up to the Palacio de Miraflores in Caracas and live on television and social media, for those without electricity who were able to recharge their phones in public places, he described in detail the three stages of this “electric coup”, which began on Thursday with the sabotage of the hydroelectric plant Simon Bolivare on the large Guri dam , continued Saturday with the explosion of the primary emergency electric substation of Sidor(between Guyana and the capital of the Bolivar state of the same name ) which started operation to guarantee energy supply, and continued on the night of Sunday and Monday with the outbreaks of a second substation in Caracas , as anticipated exclusively by Gospa News , and two more, including that of Cabudare in the state of Lara .

“The change of the regime’s plan United States proposes the electrical blackout in Venezuela as a” watershed event “for” to galvanize public disorder. ”

Created in 2010 by Canvas, the NGO that educated Juan Guaidò , the memorandum reads like a strategic plan for today’s coup ». The journalistic investigation website The Grayzone writes on Twitter from the Foreign Ministry of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza .

While the self-proclaimed president Juan Guaidò as president (actual) of the Asemblea NacionalMonday got the obvious vote of the Venezuelan parliament to declare a state of emergency (according to Article 338 of the Bolivarian Constitution), the first condition required to invoke and therefore justify foreign intervention by blocking export of oil to Cuba , accusations of sabotage to the US become stronger and more detailed, so much so that the Bolivarian Government has ordered all Washington diplomats to leave the country : news obviously sold on the contrary by the American embassy and the Western and Italian media in its service, which he claimed to have called officials on his own initiative.

From the Cuban ambassador in Caracas Rogello Polanco Fuentes very heavy accusations come to the saboteurs: “The revolutionary government Cuba strongly condemns the sabotage to the supply of electricity to Venezuela , which constitutes a terrorist act, aimed at damaging the defenseless population of an entire nation”.

To confirm the attacks, already reported as such by Gospa News in previous reports, is the Vice President Jorge Rodríguez, Minister of Communication : «Since Thursday we have received five criminal attacks on the national electricity system. At this moment we can say that there has been very broad progress in the recovery process ».

Nevertheless there are areas likeMaturin , where nine people died in the hospital due to the blackout, which has been without electricity for 100 hours. And also in Maracaibo the situation has lasted for dozens of hours with sporadic moments of return of the current. Until Saturday the emergency was that of the absence of energy, after the first collapse of the “cybernetic-electromagnetic” sabotage of the Simon Bolivar hydroelectric plant. On Sunday, there began to be one for the search for ice to keep food in the fridges turned off in a Caribbean country with temperatures that are always warm.

From Monday 11 March the alarm is now also for drinking water: despite the supplies organized by the Government with the distribution of bottles together with the boxes of Clap foodstuffs, the block of many electric pumps for underground drainage and filtration has thirsty the country forcing people to draw water where it occurs with serious risk of viral infections.

“Within a couple of hours the water will become a bigger problem than the light – tweeted Monday afternoon from the capital  Daniel Blanco , activist of Amensty International  and correspondent of some media – The river Guaireit is already a water collection point (not suitable) in Caracas .

The Caritas goes around giving tablets to purify water outside the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference until stocks are exhausted. Inform family and friends of unsafe water at home. The National Guard was ordered to control  El Ávila and El Guaire to avoid disruption to the water. Some soldiers have decided to do more .. ».

He reports showing a moving photo taken in San Agustín del Surwith a Gnb soldier who helps a boy take away a bucket of water “. The restoration of the electricity grid announced by Maduro should still allow this emergency to be overcome within a couple of days.

“Here I am at the head of my responsibilities, facing the country, our people, in the face of the most vile and criminal attack ever made against the people of Venezuela: the electrical attack. The government is deployed to satisfy all food and water needs, in the midst of the emergency we are facing “.

Thus began the official speech of President Nicolas Maduro from the Palacio de Miraflores of Caracas  in which he then immediately denounced “the fire and explosion of electrical substations to remove all electricity in Caracas. Donald Trumphe says all the options are on the table. The electric war, the cyber attack is one of the options. We are working to bring the electric service and tranquility.

I know what you went through, I lived with you and I admire the vigor, courage, superior conscience, patience that man and woman must bring to their home »he told the people in the tones of the family man , characteristic of the Chiavis of Catholic Bolivarian Socialism , before going into the details of the attacks: «It was an electric coup in several ways: first the cyber attack on the brains of the company system of Corpoelec at El Guri and the cyber attack from ‘outside the central server that remains in Caracas ».

“The second way of attack was by electromagnetic means that interrupts and reverses the recovery processes through mobile devices – revealed the Head of State – The third way is the physical path through the combustion and explosion of electrical substations.

At around 2 am there was an explosion due to a sabotage at the Padros del Este substation to cut down all electricity in Caracas, “he said, referring to the great fire in the southern area of ​​the capital that we reported yesterday.

Then he also revealed: “We captured two people who tried to sabotage the communication system of El Guri. I ask that the Venezuelan justice be directed towards the intellectual authors of this gigantic damage done to our people »reports the TeleSur television network in an article .

«The main architects of the opposition in Venezuela boasted before the attack on Thursday and boasted during this process of electrical attack: there is enough evidence!

Are there sufficient elements in the attack we have suffered so that people can reflect on who is directly responsible for politics, who takes away the light and who gives you public services every day? – declared the president as reported on Twitter by the Chancellery of the Ministry of the Popular Trade for External Relations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela

You can’t call the political struggle to attack the electricity system, take away the tranquility and the right to life to millions of Venezuelans. It’s called an electric criminal coup. It’s a serious violation of human rights! The service is now being manually retrieved. I ask for solidarity with the Corpoelecworkers: to which goes a total expression of national recognition.

In the last 24 hours we have progressed repeatedly, but they have insisted on their attacks. We have a heroic people who knew how to face all attacks with courage and this was another. We have defeated the electric coup. Those who thought they would generate an internal war in our country have failed: in Venezuela, peace has won!

We continue to overcome the attacks and at this moment we are again the electric service on the east coast of the lake; and we started working to restore the service in Maracaibo and San Francisco after the attack on the Punta de Piedra-La Arreaga line– then he showed the photo of the Caracas burned substation – We show you how the right leaves the electrical substation of the Padros Citadel of the Este after the sabotage to remove the light service to the Venezuelan people.

It is easy for you to contribute to the total recovery of the National Electric System . Turn off the light if you are not in the room, adjust the air conditioning to 23 degrees ».

The blackout in addition to causing victims in some hospitals (see previous article) and innumerable inconveniences to the population has also caused great damage in some companies as well Conflicts News Venezuela explains on its Twitter profile: «The CVG Alcasa factory in the state of Bolivar it’s still completely dark.

Due to the loss of electricity from the factory, he had to shut down his machinery, which means that the molten aluminum has solidified in its cells, destroying the production equipment “.

It is also for this reason that the president then ordered to “maintain the suspension of school and work activities during Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 March so that, together with our people, we are able to operate completely in the full stabilization of the quiet life and the peace we deserve “.

Maduro quoted Trump in his speech but never Guaidòwho believes, like many geopolitical experts, only a puppet in the hands of the American president. And it was the opposition leader yesterday afternoon to continue the script that seems to be written in a film: first the sanctions to create economic and social hardships, then the devastating electric sabotage to show the world the alleged incapacity of the legitimate government, finally the appeal to Parliament to request, as it got on Monday afternoon, the state of alarm, the first move to optimize an international intervention would trigger a civil war …



Juan Guaidò invites the population to the umpteenth street protest

“We approved our state of alert decree. The concentration of our resources in resolving the crisis forces us to suspend the shipment of oil to Cuba . We are asking for international cooperation to make this measure effective and we are already getting it ».

Few hours have passed since the Asemblea Nacional approved the emergency declaration requested by the president of the parliament Juan Guaidò and already the norm of the Magna Carta of 1999, dating back to 1961 and applied only to the Vargas earthquake by Hugo Chavez, from an instrument of coordination and defense against a natural or accidental disaster, like the electric one in this case, it becomes a weapon of foreign policy.

“You cannot defend the violation of private property, you cannot ignore the desperation of the communities that have been without electricity and water for days and cannot urgently buy what they need, without light, water or food, desperation can bring our people at a state limit to obtain sustenance for their own.

These looting reports from different cities are the result of the usurping regime that continues to prevent the solution to this crisis », the opposition leader points out, referring to acts of scalloping against government food deposits, especially in Maracaibo.

Guaidò then makes an appeal to the armed forces for a mutiny against Maduro and to the population to find himself again today, Tuesday 12 March in the square for the umpteenth protest. What is taken for granted is that the emergency rule of art. 338 has legal value: in fact it grants superpowers to the President of the Republic but not to an interim president self-proclaimed and recognized by the US and their allies but not by many nations of the world and by the UN.

But the maneuver is purely political and serves to ask for support from foreign countries, as was immediately done for oil in Cuba, and to legitimize their intervention in Venezuela.

“The Venezuelan National Assembly has decreed the suspension of oil exports to Cuba following the collapse of the national electricity grid. The insurance companies and the flag companies that facilitate these shipments to Cuba are now alert “.

He immediately tweeted John Bolton, White House’s National Security advisor with an intimidation that seems identical to that made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the countries of the Persian Gulf that threatened the blockade of crude transport from Iran, another embargoed nation Use like Venezuela.

But Latin America is already ready to react … another nation under US embargo like Venezuela. But Latin America is already ready to react … another nation under US embargo like Venezuela.


The Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza continues on the diplomatic paths: waiting to receive the visit of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the UN, Michelle Bachelet , welcomed a delegation of human rights representatives from Canada and the United States just on Monday highlight the availability for international collaboration in Caracas.

But the other South American countries allied with Caracas and hostile to the US have already unearthed the hatchet for Washington: «Cuba condemns the terrorist sabotage against the electricity system Venezuela. It is part of the escalation of the unconventional EEUU war (USA – ed) against that brother country. It deprives the population of essential services essential for life “.

Declares  Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez , President of the Council of Ministers of the República de Cuba, giving a completely different reading than the emergency Guaidò in the Bolivarian Republic and challenging the attitudes of Americans the same way as its ambassador in Caracas.


A recent meeting between Cuban Prime Minister Miguel and President of Bolivia, Evo Morales Ayma

Even heavier are the words of the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales Ayma : “The NewYork Times newspaper denies the groundless accusations of the United States and shows that the fire of the trucks on the alleged” humanitarian aid “was caused by opposition protesters.

So they use lies to justify an aggression against the Venezuelan people seeking peace and dialogue. The President Trump and his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, blame the Venezuelan government for the deaths due to the blackout – says Morales on Twitter referring to the thirty deaths that occurred in some hospitals due to the lack of electricity and autonomous generators – The perpetrators are the authors of the attack that has left millions of people without light. They don’t care about suffering, but they want to take ownership of the Venezuela NRN ».

Difficult to summarize so many truths in so few sentences. Meanwhile, the ANSA, which has not written a line for three days about explosions in power stations, reports that the White House has decided to recall all diplomatic personnel to Venezuela. But it’s another half fake news churned out by the Americans.

Because a few hours after the Western media enslaved to Washington has released the communication of the call of officials from the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza immediately clarified in a tweet that it was the administration of the Caribbean country to give 72 hours to all US diplomats to pack: “Yesterday, l On 11 March, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister summoned James Story , diplomatic representative of the EEUU, to inform him of the sovereign decision of the Bolivarian government not to extend the presence of US diplomatic personnel in Venezuela.

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela it ratifies its inalterable disposition to maintain channels of communication and dialogue with the United States government, provided that these are developed within the framework of a relationship of equality and mutual respect “.
