Venezuela Sentences US Mercenaries to 20 Years in Prison

teleSUR | August 8, 2020

Venezuela’s Attorney General Tarek William Saab Friday reported that the two former U.S. military officers Luke Denmnan and Airan Berry, who participated in the failed invasion attempt in Venezuela, were sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Denmnan and Berry tried to force their way into Venezuela along with 50 other citizens of the Caribbean country to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

“The U.S. former military officers confessed to the crimes of conspiracy, association, illicit trafficking of war weapons and terrorism,” Saab tweeted.

These crimes appear in Venezuela’s Penal Code, and for them, the mercenaries were sentenced to 20 years in prison.

“The former U.S. soldiers, who admitted their responsibility in the events, were accused by the prosecutors in the case of serious crimes,” Saab explained.

The U.S. Silvercorp former members were detained in the second attempt of an attack against the Venezuelan coast.

At least eight people died and half a hundred more were arrested during the search and capture of the mercenaries.

Last May, Venezuela’s justice system ordered preventive detention for 40 people due to their involvement in the failed invasion attempt.

  1. Under the circumstances, seems like a decent/compassionate sentence. Maybe upon release these guys will be 65-70 yo and less inclined to eff around in other countries’ affairs…but of course there will others ready and willing to fill their combat boots and gain instant riches (it’s the American way)…or some jail time.

    What will the the US empire’s response?…can hardly apply more sanctions to an already-sanctioned-to-immiseration nation/people.

      I imagine that the Military Industrial Complex will completely abandon these “Useful Idiots”……and then try to dislodge Maduro again….although, Mr Guaido seems to be as useless as the mercenaries…..
