A second former US Green Beret captured in Venezuela following a botched coup attempt against President Nicolás Maduro was shown being interrogated in a pair of video clips released Thursday.
Airan Berry, 41, said in the first clip that he now knows his actions were illegal as he revealed the contract outlining the ill-fated mission he said was signed by coup ringleader Jordan Goudreau and Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, The Daily Mail reported.
“I know that it’s illegal now, before it was a different understanding,” he said about why he was training irregular forces in Colombia.
He was questioned about whether his human rights had been respected during his detention.
“Yes, as far as I’ve experienced, yes,” Berry replied.
A second video was released later, in which Berry wore different clothing and appeared disheveled, the website reported.
Berry was busted with American Luke Denman, 34, and six Venezuelans on Monday as Maduro’s foiiled their half-baked plot.
Denman appeared in a video shown during the Venezuelan strongman’s news conference the day before.
He said in his video that the Americans were hired to secure an airport during the coup that could be used to transfer Maduro to the US.
