Venezuelan journalist Orlando Avendaño denounces raid on his parents' house

"Venezuelan journalist Orlando Avendaño, whom the Attorney General of the Republic Tarek William Saab accused of 'instigating hatred,' denounced that officials of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin, for its acronym in Spanish) raided his parents' home in Venezuela.

'Around noon this Monday, April 1, a group of officials from the Sebin broke into my parents' house with a search warrant. They entered, took electronic equipment, cell phones, etc.,' he said in a video that he published on his social network X, formerly Twitter.

He said that the measure occurred shortly before Saab accused him of conspiracy, of receiving money from María Corina Machado [Venezuelan opposition leader] and Vente Venezuela [opposition political party], as well as of forging a plan against the government of Nicolás Maduro for his closeness with the former Colombian president, Álvaro Uribe Vélez."
