The events that took place last week with the United States of America,
Venezuela, and the Netherlands left many questions open. Perhaps you can find
The U.S. Department of Treasury issued a press release dated
9/12/2008 titled Treasury Targets Venezuelan Government Officials Supporting
One of the generals sought was caught in the island of Aruba
last week where the Venezuelan government had sent him as Consul, but he had
not yet secured diplomatic immunity. There was a heated
discussion, and the Netherlands released the individual from detention.
Roberta Jacobson, Assistant
Secretary of State, @WHAAsstSecty, wrote that “The
release of Carvajal is a misapplication of diplomatic immunity, and makes a
mockery of that important principle”.
There are reports that
Venezuela was going to send battle ships to Aruba to ensure the release of the
pending diplomat. The Washington Post reported that there were threats behind release
of Venezuelan general.
Venezuela Raised Military Pressure on It
So, what has become of
Venezuela? I worry that the International Criminal Court of Justice in the
Hague has become a joke.
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.
