Name: Madelein Da Silva de Sapienza
Arbitrarily detained: August 10, 2018
Place of confinement: Dgcim-Caracas
Madelein Da Silva and her husband Cono Sapienza were detained by officials of the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (Dgcim) on August 10, 2018, for allegedly being linked to the drone attack against Nicolás Maduro in Caracas. The couple is compadre of Juan Carlos Monasterios, a military man imprisoned for the same case.
At the time of his arrest, she was with her husband in a restaurant owned by them in El Limón, Maracay. Both were taken arbitrarily to Caracas, where the 20 ° Control Court takes the case. Apparently, Juan Monasterios carried out banking transactions from the computer of the Sapienza business, so the Dgcim tracked the IP address and stopped the couple.
Today, both are being held in the dungeons of the Dgcim in Caracas. The couple has three children of 13, 10 and 5 years old. They are innocent.
