Venezuela Border Governor Silenced After Rebuking Criminal Activities

Liborio Guarulla, the Governor of Amazonas, has been suspended from holding public office for 15 years due his outspoken attitude and comments directed at the current President’s links to illegal activities in the region Guarulla controls. The governor is known for having very different views than those maintained by the current regime, and it seems that the opposition that his views present to the leadership has led to a silencing action.

Security Services Venezuela has long been operating in the southern state, Amazonas, which shares a border with Columbia. The state has long been a staging ground for multi-national militia groups in the area. Well-known fighting forces such as FARC and the ELN have used the area for many years to organize their activities. With the Amazonas being under the care and protection of the Venezuelan government, the militias have been able to operate in many forms with little attention or resistance.

Some of the members of the now-demobilized militia, FARC, remain in the state of Amazonas and continue independent operations. Despite recent calls for peace with Columbia and the dismantling of FARC, some of the most notorious members of the militia who are known to be drug traffickers can still be found in the largely uninhabited state.

According the recently suspended governor of the State of Amazonas, the current regime led by President Nicolás Maduro is putting regulations on the area which restrict the movements of the local people and aid in the activities of the illegal groups that the regime is known to support. For years, Security Services Venezuela have drawn connections between the current President of Venezuela and members of FARC and the ELN. Both of which are known to be still operating in the Amazonas region.
