US$13,000 tip to NYC waiter from Nicolás Maduro

Dear Journalists,
In case you missed it, Venezuelans have suffered and struggle daily to buy foreign currencies and have seen their quality of life deteriorate to the worst possible situation. Then, news followers received notices during the United Nations General Assembly that the illegitimate leader of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro and a group of friends went to New York City’s Nello’s Restaurant where the dinner cost around $80,000  plus the $13,000 tip to the waiter.
In different times, this dinner event and expense would have gone unnoticed; however, after suffering big time imposed austerity by the infamous illegitimate leader and followers this dinner has made everyone furious.
In addition to the dinner, sources have reported earnings paid by Petróleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA) to late Hugo Chavez’s family surpassing eight figures in foreign currencies. Other few individuals who have become very rich during this horrible administration can be found at
No wonder these infamous people in power have imposed themselves to Venezuelans keeping them as hostages suffering daily abuse with lack of basic foods, medicines, safety, lack of basic products for every need.
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.
