Diego Arria, the former chairman of the UN Security Council and owner of "La Carolina" ranch, located in central Yaracuy state, described the takeover of his estate by the National Lands Institute (INTI) as government "retaliation" against his political position. Arria stressed that his ranch was not idle and that there are documents proving that "La Carolina" is private property since 1880, and that he has been the owner of the property for 21 years. He added that he would resort to the relevant authorities only for the record of the attacks against him. "The rule of law does not exist in Venezuela," Arria stated in a press conference.
