That same day, the aviation pilot was accused by Minister Néstor Reverol of being an instructor of a resistance movement. According to the official, the alleged destabilizing group aimed to place explosives on a helicopter at the Francisco de Miranda air base. Besides Aristimuño, about ten other people were unjustly apprehended that day.
On May 19, 2018, a month after his arbitrary detention, Foro Penal denounced that Aristimuño had suffered a severe digestive hemorrhage. The health condition of the 60-year-old pilot is delicate and his relatives fear for his life. He’s innocent.
