Venezuelan authorities detained opposition leader Juan Guaido’s uncle after the two men arrived at the main airport in Caracas, ruling Socialist Party Vice President Diosdado Cabello said yesterday.

Juan Jose Marquez, who was with Guaido on his return to Venezuela after a three-week international tour, passed “migration normally, and as he was about to leave ... he was held for an alleged Seniat review,” Guaido’s press team wrote on Twitter. Seniat is Venezuela’s national tax agency.

“He’s detained, not forcibly disappeared, he’s detained for bringing prohibited substances onto a flight,” said Cabello on his weekly television program Wednesday evening.

He then showed pictures of a bulletproof vest and alleged explosive material he said belonged to Marquez, and said Marquez had also brought in an electronic file containing information about “operations against Venezuela.”

Marquez’s wife, Romina Botaro, said her husband was an airplane pilot who had nothing to do with politics.
