Venezuela's Political Disaster - April 11, 2009

Dear Journalists,

Venezuelan are observing today the events that took place on April 11, 2002. Below please find archive article written by bloger Daniel Duquenal explaining those events.

Today, the police commissioners in charge during April 11, 2002 are jailed with a 30 year sentence by Chavez, while they claim their innocence, and rumors say that Chavez's supporters were those who killed the unarmed citizens from Puente Llaguno:

"No tears or sympathy, I want you to take action"

Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat wrote on his bi-weekly column this week concerning the jail sentence against the police commissioners, and other leaders as open political persecution in Venezuela. Amb. Taylhardat says that Chavez has been acting in complete violation of the Inter-American Democratic Charter (Carta Democratica)

In other outrageous matters, there is a total abuse of power against democratically elected Mayor Antonio Ledezma. Chavez and thugs are removing all powers and funds to the Mayor leaving him with a diminished job description without the regular responsibilities assigned to the mayor's office, and penny less to lead.

The Constructive Discharge of Mayor Antonio Ledezma

Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma's job description has been totally diminished by Chavez making it worthless as reported in Noticias24:

In the United States Constructive Discharge is against the law:

The term "constructive discharge" describes a situation in which an employee is forced to quit a job because the employer has made working conditions intolerable. Working conditions may be considered intolerable if, for example, the employee is discriminated against or harassed, or if he or she suffers a negative change in pay, benefits, or workload for reasons that are not performance-related. In most cases, an employee who voluntarily leaves a company—as opposed to one whose employment is terminated by the company against his or her will—is not entitled to unemployment benefits and loses the right to sue the company for wrongful termination.
