Murder of Two Soldiers Results in Mega-Gang Retaliation

Following the murder of two soldiers, a forceful mega-gang in Venezuela has retaliated by massacring members of another criminal group. This form of justice would mean that the “pax mafiosa” would come to an end between certain criminal groups that have control over areas Caracas and the government of Nicolas Maduro.

The gang of over 100 men, known as a mega-gang of Carlos Luis Revette, murdered seven members of the gang of Elvis Eduardo Castro Troya on the 12th February. Both groups are looking to take control of the densely populate neighborhood of Cota 95 and they are doing this with exceptional levels of violence.

The Castro Troya gand murdered two soldiers from the Bolivarian National Guard and so, the massacre was a result of this. The two murders were seen as a breach of the unwritten criminal rule which prohibits the killing of military or police officials in the area.

In an act to defend the alleged peace agreements that were passed with members of the government that allowed the mega-gang to react in this way, one of the most well-known criminals in Venezuela, Coqui, took action with his gang.

The territory of Cota 905 had been classed as a Peace zone in 2015, where government authorities came to an agreement with criminals to decrease the amount of violence in exchange for passing over control of territory. The agreement was broken during the same year although it was brought back into force in 2017 for the area of Cota 905
