Angelo was assigned to the company 1,407 Army in the community of Coloncito, Táchira state, when he was arbitrarily arrested on April 2, 2017. He was charged by a military court for the crimes of treason, instigation of rebellion and Attempt against the order of the nation of the National Armed Forces, being linked to the “Phoenix Strike”, presumably set by Army officials against Nicolás Maduro.
Alonso Medina, associate lawyer of the Foro Penal Venezolano, denounced that although the crimes attributed to the captain were very complex, the Public Ministry made the accusation without verifying how they were perpetrated.
