"The sword of global justice looms over Chávez" by Diego Arria

Interview with Diego Arria, former UN Security Council President

"The sword of global justice looms over Chávez"

"The drug-trafficking links of top intelligence officers entail a direct relationship with the head of state"

In less than a week's time, the Venezuelan government has expelled both the US ambassador and the director of Human Rights Watch, José Miguel Vivanco; objected to the Vatican's decision to grant diplomatic asylum to former student-movement leader Nixon Moreno; been accused of interventionism by the Bolivian Armed forces; and been the source of like protests in Paraguay and Ecuador while, in Miami, the court hearings on the briefcase scandal are underway. This chain of events, according to Diego Arria, former U.N. Security Council president, ex-U.N. ambassador for Venezuela and past advisor to that international organization's Secretary-General, is a clear sign that "Chávez's government has become a gang, clad in olive-green, that uses Venezuela's state-owned oil company Pdvsa for petty cash to fund all sorts of criminal undertakings."
