Dear Journalists,
Many in Venezuela will not have a Merry Christmas 2013 at all thanks to the obsolete currency control system (Comisión de Administración de Divisas.‎). Cadivi ruined many businesses’ credit to vendors, and placed business owners in a terrible situation where they cannot buy nor sell goods because of the foreign currency controls created by inept individuals. It takes several months for approval of requests for foreign currency.
The Associated Press reported on December 16, 2013 that Venezuela’s illegitimate government officials announced new auction mechanism which will gradually replace the so-called Cadivi system that is used to mete out dollars to Venezuelans.  That is, after everyone is ruined and there are complete lack of basic food supplies for citizens. I was told this week that in the city of Maracay the lines to buy groceries are two to three blocks long of people standing in line, and when they arrive to buy their goods there are none!
Loved ones lack basic foods, detergents, and there is not even beer to buy. All of this thanks to inept, greedy, and moral turpitude government officials who only cared about how rich they could become. Just last week it was reported on Twitter that a government official’s nephew got married and a huge party at the island of Coche was thrown with whatever amount of luxuries and excesses.
Infamous illegitimate president Maduro is attacking businesses for over pricing goods, but does nothing at all to his supporters who drive unlicensed pirate taxis all over the cities charging as they please.
Please read the that reports details of who has money in Venezuela, and how some have become billionaires in only a few years.
Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat (retired) explained corruption in his opinion article
The following poster is widely circulating the Internet:

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.
