CARACAS, June 27.— Attacks with a Airbus Bolkow helicopter stolen by a man who is under investigation for his connections with the CIA were perpetrated on the Ministry of Internal Relations, Justice and Peace, and against the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), without causing victims.

The news was released by the Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas, when reading out a communiqué from the Government directed to “the Venezuelan citizenry and the friendly peoples of the world” about the attacks, “as part of the actions carried out by the opposition against the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its institutions.”

The perpetrator was identified as Oscar Alberto Pérez, who used his condition of inspector attached to the Air Transport Division of the Corps of Scientific, Penal and Criminal Investigations (CICPC). He fired 15 shots against the first building, and then took the helicopter to the TSJ building, where an attack with at least four grenades of Colombian origin manufactured in Israel took place. One of the grenades failed to exploded and was collected. There were people in the two places. “Thanks to the quick reaction of the security guards a tragedy could be avoided”, the text published on the VTV website added.

The Bolivarian Government considered the attacks of this kind as terrorist, in the midst of an insurgent offensive promoted by extremists of the Venezuelan far right with the support of foreign governments, the text added.
