César Orta was arrested on May 2, 2014 in Maracay, Aragua State, along with other officers for allegedly planning a coup against the Venezuelan government. The coup was known as “Blue Strike” because it mostly involves aviation officers. They were all accused of the presumed plan of use a Tucano aircraft to attack several government headquarters.
On May 5, 2015, the Permanent War Council of Caracas sentenced César Orta to 8 years and 7 months in prison for the crimes of instigation to rebellion and against the military decorum.
Cesar, like all political prisoners, is innocent.
