On May 3, 2020, the Defense Minister of Venezuela Nestor Reverol “announced and denounced” that in the early Sunday morning hours, a group of mercenaries coming from Colombia were detected attempting an armed maritime invasion–using speedboats–through the coastal region of La Guaira. Among the infiltrators were two former American soldiers working for Silvercorp USA, the security (mercenary) services company founded by ex-Green Beret Jordan Goudreau (“a freedom-loving patriot, a mercenary and a gifted warrior scarred by battle and in way over his head”).
Silvercorp had a 15-month contract with “exiled Venezuelan military” for the purpose of “exit/removal of current Venezuelan Regime and entrance/installation of recognized Venezuelan Government.” The operation was to be funded partially by “investors” who “will have a preferred vender status with the new government in Venezuela.” The dues to Silvercorp were payable in cash or barrels of oil. The contract was signed 10/16/2019.
