He added that one of the subjects identified as Jerry Argenis Ostos Perdomo, upon being approached by the security forces, was found to have a 9 mm caliber firearm, Pietro Beretta brand and a 9 mm magazine with a capacity of 15 ammunition, and containing 12 bullets. Ostos is the national coordinator of “that micro-sect known as VV,” Saab said. 

The prosecutor also said that minutes later the other implicated person was located and was identified as Carlos Eduardo Castillo. The subject was also found with a 7.65 mm caliber firearm, Walther brand, with a magazine with capacity for 8 ammunition and containing 6 bullets.

Saab noted that on the night of March 25, several raids were carried out and the investigation continues. In this regard, the prosecutor said that in the last few weeks plans have been unveiled that seek to generate an escalation of violence, military uprisings and the seizure of power by means alien to the democratic game. 

Saab concluded by condemning the irresponsibility of news agencies that do not abide by the truth and do not denounce these conspiracy actions. “Because it is an accomplice way of giving coverage and justification to all the actions I have mentioned,” said the attorney general.
