REVISED: Venezuela's Political Disaster - September 18, 2008

Dear Journalists,

There are major scandals taking place in Venezuela as I write this posting. It seems that Chavez is disobeying the Vatican's political asylum to a refugee who has been living at the Vatican's office in Caracas. And, by alleged biased infamous Congress vote the fate of the refugee is at risk:

It is very courageous of Chavez to take action against the weapons less and non-violent Vatican. Can the Vatican defend itself? Humm this will be interesting to watch. I wonder if the charges against the refugee are true, and if so, would the refugee be prosecuted by the Vatican?

The US$800,000 scandal has been dominating the news, after more money has been linked on the same aircraft adding up $4M or more as commented by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat, and the following links:

Human Rights Watch has issued a report on Chavez's abuse of power on their website:

Political Discrimination and Weakened Institutions Define Presidency

Following my previous posting, please know that Chavez's bipolar behavior is widely known in Venezuela. Please visit link to the humorous bipolar blog on Chavez:

Venezuelans need help from developed governments and international organizations to restore democracy and end corruption.
