A very sad day for Venezuela Justice

December 13, 2004

It is indeed a very sad day for justice in Venezuela. Ending decades of democracy in selecting Supreme Court members, the Chavez controlled National Assembly elected by simple majority the new members of that Court, which guarantee the total control of its decision by the pro-Chavze majority. This was done using a perverse interpretation of the law, since Justices had always been selected by a two thirds majority.


To make the process even less democratic, the opposition only found out who the lucky few were at the session in which they were elected by the pro-Chavez majority. In fact, the Head of the selection committee, Deputy Pedro Carreńo had said this weekend that not one of the new members of the new Supreme Court had even a trace of being opposition. Of course, he said little about qualifications and now the Venezuelan Supreme Court counts as its members the President of the CNE Francisco Carrasquero. A vindictive man, who corrupted the law and regulations when he presided the CNE, violating even the regulations approved by his own decisions. Or Luis Velasquez Alvaray, the National Assembly Deputy that if anything has demonstrated his ignorance of the law. .


 


The Head of the credentials committed Pedro Carreńo is himself quite a character. Three years ago he held a press conference to “show” the confidential information he had received that Fujimori’s right hand man Vladimiro Montesinos could not be in Venezuela as he had died in Peru. Montesinos was found alive in Venezuela some months later. But he saved his best performance for a later date, when he accused the CIA of spying on all Venezuelans via the Direct TV cable boxes sold in Venezuela. He will be appointed Vice-president of the National Assembly in January.


 


To complete the perversity, the new members of the Court are additional members who are being named to take advantage of the fact that the 2000 Constitution “forgot” to limit the number of Justices in the Court. Thus its expansion results from the use, once again, of an additional legal subterfuge to increase the number of Justices.


 


The remarkable thing is that the current Court was appointed by the post-Constituent Assembly “Congresillo” which was composed only by pro-Chavez members, who tried to select the people with the required qualifications and experience to be members of the Court. No such pretense was kept this time around.


 


Only fools can believe that this is not another step by a totalitarian-minded Government to control everything in the country. Only fools can believe that this is the result of a democratic process or that freedom for the people is the goal of those that planned this. No fair-minded person would have twisted the law and perverted the democratic process, the way it has been perverted by the pro-Chavez majority of the National Assembly in this case. This is fascism at its best; in order to impose a pseudo-legality backed by spurious decisions by the Chavez controlled Constitutional Hall of the Venezuelan Supreme Court. Venezuelans who believe in democracy no longer will have a fair chance from today on. Venezuelans who are pro-Chavez will one day regret giving him so much power. Decisions will be made strictly on Chavez’ orders and whims. Judges will be selected exclusively on the basis of their allegiance to the totalitarian wishes and misguided dreams of Hugo Chavez Frías. It is indeed a very sad day, the end of any possibility of Justice for all in Venezuela.

A very fat swindle by Teodoro Petkoff

December 13, 2004

This is today’s Editorial by Teodoro Petkoff in Tal Cual, it extends the Bermudez case to some real state deals done by the Ministry of Finance and suggests some of the same manipulations and improper handling of the bond issues that I have often mentioned in this blog:


A very fat swindle by Teodoro Petkoff


Jesus Bermudez, called “Fat (Gordo) Bermudez”, former Vice-Minister of Finance with Tobias Nóbrega, has been detained in Miami and is going to be subject to a trial for a number of violations of the law, among them, attempting to introduce as contraband forty thousand dollars in cash into the US. But things are not as simple as Jose Vicente (the VP) attempted to make it look, when he denied that the plane in which the “Gordo” traveled belonged to CVG. Let’s see.


In order to be free on bail, one hundred thousand dollars were paid in a flash. Who paid? Someone called Leonardo LLaneza. Let’s pull that thread. Who is Leonardo Llaneza? The brother and partner of Ramon Llaneza in various companies in Miami. And who is Ramon Llaneza? The representative of Yavonca Oficina Tecnica. This company was the one that sold the Ministry of Finance the “Bilbao” building, acquired to become the headquarters of the School of Administration and Public Finance of the Ministry of Finance. Tal Cual (in its editions on July 19th. and 28th. of this year) commented in its editorial about this operation in which Yavonca which had acquired the building for 1,928 million Bolívars (About one million dollars at the official exchange rate), and eleven days later, sold it to the Ministry of Finance for a cool 3,878 million Bolívars (about two million dollars at the official exchange rate). A modest overprice of 1,950 million Bolívars. Previously, Nóbrega’s Ministry had acquired the Citibank building, paying more than nine million dollars to a real state company that a week before had purchased it from Citibank for 4.5 million dollars. Before the Bilbao swindle, Yavonca, that is, Llaneza, had also attempted to sell another building called “Gloria” to the Ministry. The modus operandi was the same as Bilbao, but the operation did not pan out. However, who was the owner of “Gloria”? The Aguilera family, of which another very good friend of Nóbrega is part of, Ali Aguilera. The numbers begin to tie with each other: Llaneza, Bermudez, Aguilera.


 


All of them belong to Nobrega’s close circle. The National Assembly began an investigation about these buildings, the results of which nobody knows anything about. It can not be coincidental that in the web page of aporrea.org, from which those that pretend to be the naďve part of the regimen operate, wrote the following suspicious paragraph: “Nobrega’s departure may be connected to the decision by “Gordo” Bermudez to travel to Miami with that amount in cash. There has been no official statement by the Government” What were the dollars for? For “little” Christmas gifts, said Bermudez. “Aporrea” suggests something else.


 


The management of the country’s foreign debt has raised many eyebrows. There was not a single bond issue that did not raise suspicions. The last one that coincided with Nobrega’s removal, made the alarms ring among investors because the assignments were made with a handpicked bias. The amazing statement by the Minister about the date of the devaluation had its logical effect, it made the “black” exchange rate go up, with which all those that had bonds, handpicked by the Ministry, may have received a juicy Christmas present. Did the Minister’s statements have something to do with this? Why was Nóbrega exactly fired for? Venezuela does not change. Crimes without criminals continue to exist. There are never trials, nobody pays. Everything is resolved by dark firings that leave the thief, if he is one, with the loot and if he is not, it leaves him marked forever. The “revolution” is more of the same…

A New History of Venezuela by Manuel Caballero

December 13, 2004

From today’s El Universal, hard to translate, but very funny:


 


The New History of Venezuela (According to the regulations established in the Bolivarian laws recently approved or on their way to being approved) by Manuel Caballero


 


Venezuela was not discovered, like the racist and colonialist Spaniards want to pretend in 1498, but on February 4th. 1992 (1), that day, General Hugo Chavez Frías (Who due to the intrigue of the Puntofijismo (2), had barely been allowed to reach the level of lieutenant colonel) covered himself with glory fighting to the last drop of blood in the battle of the Military Museum (3). Despite his heroics, when he noticed that his mates in rebellion had surrendered and that only he continued to fight without fear, he accepted to surrender to an Army which he had practically annihilated.


 


An obscure caudillejo.- From that day, we stopped being called Venezuelans. Despite the unanimity of the people who wanted that we become “chavianos”, the ingenious modesty of the new father of the country proposed that we be called “Bolivarianos”. Giving up the glory that corresponded to him to an obscure caudillejo of our indigenous past that of course, did not even come up to the legs of the semi God from Sabaneta. 


 


Despite the shameless fraud of the puntofijismo, that named a National Electoral Council composed only of members of their parties so that they would completely fulfill their task of blocking the popular victory moving voters, manipulating voting machines and even nationalizing tourists and giving results between midnight and the time the cocks sing, the people won, electing the Father of the New Country. Who, to the shame of his cheating enemies, rushed to name a new independent electoral board, impartial, clean, without fears and without reproach. A Board like Venezuelan history had never known, which opposed in most emphatic fashion all of the intents of the Governments to take advantage of its power.


 


Added to the DRAE (Diccionario de la Real Academia Espańola).- That CNE was presided by an academic of the Language (4)(it is to him that we owe the incorporation, accepted by the DRAE, among others the word “tramparencia”(5)  and the verbal forms  “tabanos” (we were) and “ibanos” (we were going)) and a psychiatrist (6) without hate, nor complexes, as well as a pinch hitter brought directly from Sicily to complete the Trifecta of the CNE (acronym that designates the “Cosa Nostra” Electoral).


 


Since then, he has been able to develop in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela the only “pretty, pretty and pretty” revolution (That is the way erudite William Lara calls it with sweetness in his voice) that has veer been produced in the universe world since the inferior Paleolithic until our days.


 


Since our purpose is historic and not political, and besides because the space that our patriotic laws give us is quite limited, we will refer to only one aspect of this process: the deformation of history by the fascist and coupsters terrorists of the media. To begin with the manipulation that has made Carlos Ilich Ramirez (The Jackal), the equivalent of our own Mother Theresa of Calcutta, as a ferocious assassin and blood drinker.


 


Twelve Protesters.- But perhaps the most shameless terrorist conspiracy of the visual media took place on April 11th. 2002. That day,  approximately (being generous) one dozen people marched, armed to the teeth and with the aid of the fascist and terrorist Metropolitan police directed by members of criminal organizations called the “no Tupamaros” (7) , “no-Carapiacas”(7), “no-hooded ones”, they attempted to take over the Miraflores Palace, to which, with a fluid and rich language that made him look like a preacher, General Lucas Rincon, announced urbi et orbi that given that the squalid march had started shooting against some kids that were being given classes at a nursery school located at Puente Llaguno, Generalissimo Hugo Chávez Frías had NOT been asked to resign, which he did NOT accept.


 


The Great Humanitarian.-Believe it or not, the fascist, coupsters and terrorist media, suppressed the two negatives from the speech of the great humanist Lucas Rincon, to make believe that Marshal Hugo Chávez Frías had surrendered, repeating the feat of February 4th. 1992. Thanks God that approximately two hundred million Venezuelans (moderate calculation) met in front of the Palace to proclaim their fidelity to the Unique Chief, while opposition mobs devoted themselves to stealing and looting. From then on, the media have not given any break in their job of deformation. We will end with one example, small but emblematic, in Carabobo, a General with round and healthy face, tried to liberate himself from a bothersome and apoplectic abdominal inflammation, like any human being does, but the fart took a wrong turn and that is how the media transformed that healthy practice in a burp to say the General was ignoring good manners. Thanks God that the people, without fraud and manipulation, elected him Governor, and now he can take all of the lactic charcoal that the budget will allow.


 


And here is the lesson for today kids. Go home and may God and Marshal Chavez bless you.


 


(1) Date of the Chavez coup


(2) Puntofijismo: After the Perez Jimenez Dictatorship, all parties agreed to certain ground rules. The pact was signed at the city of Punto Fijo.


(3) In the 1992 coup attempt Chavez was the only leader not to achieve his military objective and stayed in the Military Museum until he surrendered/ That Museum is not even close to the Presidential Palace.


(4) This refers to the current President of the CNE, Francisco Carrasquero, who has difficulties pronouncing many words.


(5) A mixture of tricks and transparency in Spanish.


(6) This refers to CNE Director Jorge Rodriguez.


(7) Armed Urban guerrila groups that support Chavez
