Minister of communications, Jorge Rodriguez said on Monday, April 6th, that the curfew extended by four hours, after several days of night-time protests against the regime in municipalities bordering with Colombia, located in Tachira state.
Rodriguez, however, did not allude to the demonstrations, which have including barricades blocking streets but did say that the regime had spotted “three paramilitaries and a mercenary,” under rebel general Cliver Alcala, amongst the group of Venezuelans returning from Colombia, after a Coronavirus outbreak declared in that country.
Alcala, who entered himself to U.S custody days after a bounty of $10 million was offering for his head, had been living in Colombia since 2018.
The regime claims the retired Army general was conspiring against Maduro, and training mercenaries to oppose his regime.
Starting today, Tuesday, residents in the municipalities of Simon Bolivar and Ureña in the state of Tachira will have to stop circulating at 4:00 pm, and will only be able to venture outside their homes at 10:00 am the next day.
