Laundromat for crooks?

Dear Journalists,
Recently, corruption seems to be the word in Venezuela. Illegitimate self-proclaimed leader Nicolas Maduro has launched an anti-corruption project to get rid of crooks.
An August 20, 2013 published article JP Morgan's suspect hiring of Venezuelans [UPDATED] provides a series of alleged accusations against a group of individuals:
Please remember that Maduro was nominated by his own wife who is an attorney and should have recused herself for this decision for  a possible conflict of interest.
The ailing president Hugo Chavez was unable to return to Venezuela from Cuba for a January 10, 2013 inauguration to kick off his new six-year term. Venezuela's Supreme Court delayed the swearing in ceremony and ruled that Mr. Chávez's government remain in place until the leader could take the oath of office  (Minaya, 2013).  Venezuela's  Attorney General acted against Constitutional law, by  interpreting Venezuela’s Constitution erroneously or for her own interest.  The Venezuela National Assembly, which is similar to the United States Congress, nominated Chavez’s hand-picked successor Nicolas Maduro as the interim president for thirty days until new elections are conducted (Minaya, 2013).  The Attorney General is Maduro’s wife.
While many bloggers are taking a break from the political disaster in Venezuela the situation seems to deteriorate even further.
The International Court of Justice, busy at it is, should make time to prosecute Hugo Chavez’s thugs who survived him for abuse of power, fraud, and more fraud if the alleged algorithms and open violation of the vote are true.
Venezuelans need help from world leaders to assure the safety of the opposition leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
