Thirteen natives Pemon remain arrested in a military base in Caracas accused of co-operating with the soldiers that rebelled last December in the Battalion Mariano Montilla from Luepa in the Gran Sabana, Venezuela.
They were arrested two days after the rebellion, accused of helping the soldiers to flee along the roads that only they know, and guide them to the border with Brazil.
