American Mercenary Arrested in Venezuela Says Objective Was to Abduct Maduro and Take Him to US

Luke Denman, one of the US mercenaries captured for being involved in a failed raid on the Venezuelan coast last Sunday, stated in footage published on Wednesday that his mission was to abduct Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and take him to the United States.

During a video-recorded interrogation, Denman stated that “the only instructions” he received from the operation’s leader, ex-Green Beret Jordan Goudreau, were “to make sure I took control of the airport so that we could safely transfer Maduro to the plane” and bring the Venezuelan president to the US.

In his own words, Denman expected payment of between $50,000 and $100,000 (€46.325 and €92.651) for this action.

The mercenary also claimed that Goudreau, owner of the Florida-based security company Silvercorp, provided them with the weapons and tactical uniforms used during the armed operation, and claimed that the former Green Beret was following direct orders from Donald Trump.
