Venezuela condemns illegal kidnapping of envoy Alex Saab

quote [ Venezuela’s special diplomatic envoy, Alex Saab, was extradited to the United States on Saturday October 16 after being detained in Cape Verde for 491 days. Saab was arrested in Cape Verde on June 12, 2020 at the request of the US government when his plane was refueling at the Amilcar Cabral International Airport on the island of Sal. Following his extradition on Saturday, the Venezuelan government released an official statement condemning Saab’s “kidnapping” by the US with complicity of Cape Verdean authorities. ]

You may remember Saab as the Venezuelan envoy who the US went after for trying to secure food and supplies for Venezuela's poor, rebelling against the US's murderous sanctions.

"Illegal" kidnapping makes me think there's a way to legally kidnap someone.

I think that's called arresting them.
