Juan Guaido, president of the National Assembly, can´t enter his workplace. And now, his uncle Juan Jose Marquez, a professional pilot, has been sent to jail, accused of smuggling explosives aboard a commercial flight that originated in Europe.

Local NGOs Foro Penal and Provea say that the Venezuelan criminal justice system is controlled by the Nicolas Maduro regime and has been used to criminalize the opposition, headed by Guaido.

Guaido and Marquez arrived Tuesday in Caracas. During the welcoming melee, in which pro-Maduro activists attacked Guaido and his party, Marquez was taken into tax authority Seniat offices at around 6:00 p.m. “to sign some papers,” his wife Romina said Wednesday afternoon.

That was the last time when Marquez sawed in public. Then, he was sent to jail by a court in his home state Vargas, his lawyer Joel Garcia told El Pitazo.

But he was not arraigned in Caracas, where his lawyer was waiting for him, he was sent back to Vargas, instead, without notice.
