The president of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, was arrested this Sunday by a command of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), but shortly after he was released, without actually knowing why he was taken away. As leader of the Legislative Power and, for many, the visible head of the opposition at this time, Guaidó has parliamentary immunity. After leaving the brief captivity, he described the arrest as a kidnapping. The Government of Venezuela attributed its detention to four SEBIN officials, who, according to an official statement, acted in a personal capacity and without orders from superiors. CNN also learned that several embassies are willing to protect Guaidó if he decides to assume the position of president. The president of the National Assembly decided to ignore the government of President Nicolás Maduro, a move that produced part of the international community to support him. For this Tuesday a speech by Maduro is expected in which he mentions this and other topics of the Venezuelan crisis.
