The Public Ministry charged 16 people for allegedly participating in the invasion of six towers of a residential complex.
The information was released by the attorney general, Tarek William Saab, through his account on the social network Twitter from where he indicated that the event occurred in the Doña Paulina residential complex, located in Puerto Ordaz, Bolívar.
Among the defendants are Angélica Cedeño, Nadia Barroso, Karina Aular and Jaleska Sánchez. The Attorney General said that there are 12 accomplices of the fact, who are also criminally prosecuted.
In this sense, the Public Ministry charged the crimes of invasion and conspiracy. In addition, he requested a custodial measure, which was agreed by the court.
From other sources we learned that the occupants claim to be owners of the real estate lot, which caused clashes with residents of the residential complex, according to witnesses.
Article 471-A of the Penal Code establishes a sentence of five to ten years in prison for “whoever, with the purpose of obtaining illicit profit for himself or for a third party, invades someone else’s land, real estate or property,” as well as a fine of 50 to 200 tax units.
Regarding the verb “invade”, governing the aforementioned criminal conduct, the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (sentence 1881 of 12/8/2011) stated that for its materialization “occupation of the property is required…preventing the owner from exercising the attributes of the property, traditionally known as the use, enjoyment and disposal of said property”.
