It’s not going according to plan for around a thousand military and security force personnel who defected from Venezuela.
They crossed the border into neighbouring Colombia two months ago, answering the opposition’s call to defect.
Venezuela’s opposition said that it was unprepared for the numbers of military personnel that defected back in February and a struggling to come up with a plan to support them in the long term.
Meanwhile, the families of defectors have received death threats and have been forced to flee, as well, while the defectors wait for a call or an end to the political stalemate.
