By Philip Terzian/ShareAmerica July 19, 2019 Harass. Detain. That’s what the Maduro regime does to its opponents in Venezuela’s National Assembly, the country’s sole surviving democratic institution.On January 13, the regime’s Bolivarian Intelligence Service (SEBIN) arrested and detained Interim President Juan Guaidó. When the United States and the international community, including the Organization of American States, swiftly condemned the action, Guaidó was released.What other government figures has Maduro harassed or detained? Some 67 Assembly deputies, says Caracas’ Analítica. That’s nearly two-thirds of the duly elected opposition bloc reporting harassment, imprisonment or worse.Sometimes the Maduro regime moves beyond harassment, beyond imprisonment, all the way to torture. Example: popular Caracas deputy Gilber Caro. Held repeatedly by Maduro’s intelligence service, Caro has been a victim of SEBIN torture and given only starvation rations. Caro was arrested again in April and hasn’t been seen since. His lawyer considers him “disappeared.”Other legislators, elected by the Venezuelan people, have been forced to seek refuge in foreign embassies: deputy Freddy Guevara in Chile’s, deputy Americo de Grazia at Italy’s and deputy Franco Manuel Casella in Mexico’s. Deputy Richard Blanco is now a “guest” of the Argentine ambassador. A dozen more of their National Assembly colleagues have fled to neighboring countries.In May, Maduro’s regime arrested the National Assembly’s first vice president, Édgar Zambrano. He remains in custody.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Zambrano’s illegal imprisonment “an attack on the independence of [Venezuela’s] democratically elected legislative branch.” In an interview, Pompeo said, “Our task is to continue to support all those who are supporting Juan Guaidó.”
None of the four goes through a good time, Thomas is the capital at the start of the ball and when breaking lines, but In recent games he has failed to exploit that facet. Saul seems lost between the defense, the band and the middle, and his contribution with the ball is scarce. Simeone counts the days to retrieve Koke, a fixed in his scheme and that, even without going through the best stage of his career, is capital for the team. He brings personality, never hides and is an exit played for his teammates, offering himself in each attack.Summoned without dischargeThe ‘6’ is the player who best understands his coach, who best works tactically on his scheme, finishing game after game as the player with the most distance runs and is also the in charge of leading the team from within the field as athletic captain Simeone summoned him in the list of 20 players for the match against Leganés despite not being recovered from his injury simply so that his captain was part of the expedition before being discarded in the morning.Koke is more than a player for Simeone, with the goodbye of so many heavyweights in summer it has remained as the cholista reference (eight years together) and the Cholo Pray for having him back for the game against Real Madrid next Saturday. Someone trained to raise their voice if it is necessary to alert or call attention to a partner, but also to give a message of encouragement and tranquility mainly to the youngest if things don’t go out. Koke, a football player who is not when it is most important in the team. Atlético goes through one of its most delicate moments since the arrival of Simeone on the bench, out of the Championships, eliminated from Copa del Rey by Cultural Leonesa, of Second Division B and all this after lose the final of the Spanish Super Cup on penalties against Real Madrid. Three defeats and a draw in two weeks that have complicated the season a lot. The four meetings have coincided with an alarming scoring drought (only somewhat) and a football crisis in the development from the midfield. But in addition, the mental blockage that the rojiblanco team has experienced has required leaders to throw the team behind their backs and assume responsibilities in bad times and have not had them beyond an Oblak that with the bracelet on their arm every day Take on more gallons. All of this has had Koke’s injury among the common factors, team captain, cholismo veteran and midfielder with more assists of the decade in LaLiga. Without Koke, Simeone has been changing its center of the field in search of greater creativity and inspiration from the second line. Herrera has been the alternative that has enjoyed more opportunities, with Thomas and Saul fixed in the team, although in the case of ‘8’ alternating their position in the middle with the left side. But the Mexican, who has been a starter in all meetings except Leganés, has failed to settle on the team or have progression in his game. Llorente has also been growing in participation, although its function is more destructive than imaginative. Vallecano was injured at the end of the game against Osasuna (2-0) on a day where he went to play directly from the hospital after celebrating his paternity. Missed meetings against Betis (1-2) and Levante (2-1) for an elongation in the hamstrings of his right thigh until he forced his return in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona. He could only hold 27 minutes on the pitch, although it served to make the goal that opened the scoring. Before the Blaugranas, he relapsed from his muscular problems and has been on leave for 18 days.
