    Has anyone read that Naptha is more expensive now the crude. Venezuela needs it to blend with it's crude in order to ship it to the USA to refine. It turns out now that Venezuela instead decided to just import the crude oil inside and then send it to the USA to refine.

    What is wrong with this picture of and OPEC nation with some of the worlds largest proven oil reserves IMPORTING OIL!!!!!!

    NO ONE can mismanage a country to the degree that Venezuela is mismanaged.

    What a shame! 21st century. Seems venezuela can't make people 'disappear' and then get them dragged out for show trials and 'quiet' execution. Rajoy is, of course, stupid. He's a spaniard. Dumb from day 1. Demonstrably corrupt, demonstrably broke. Demonstrably undemocratic. Demonstrably a liar. Demonstrably incompetent. Demonstrably 'rogue'.

    Lilian Tintori argues the arrest of Mr Lopez and other opposition leaders is an attempt to silence dissident voices.
    Mr Lopez was due to appear in court on Tuesday, but refused to attend saying that the court had refused to respond to a United Nations request to free him.

    The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has called on the Venezuelan government to release Mr Lopez and last week the UN's High Commissioner on Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, also expressed his serious concern.

    “The prolonged and arbitrary detention of political opponents and protestors in Venezuela is causing more and more concern internationally,” he said.
    “It is only exacerbating the tensions in the country,” he added.

    Forty-three people from both sides of the political divide died during the opposition protests in major Venezuelan cities earlier this year.
    We love you Lilianita!!!!!
    Free Venezuela!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A lot of countries with subsidised health systems try and block medicines being smuggled out of the country but it comes to something when a buying a single bag of rice gets you jailed.

    Fingerprints for food.

    This has been introduced across Venezuela. If you have had your quota for the week it is now illegal for the shop to serve you.
