Can Hugo Chavez be convicted?

Dear Journalists,
As Hugo Chavez’s alleged narco judge arrived in Washington, D.C. April 17, 2012 on a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) aircraft with boxes of evidence linking narcotics trafficking in Chavez’s administration can the infamous leader be convicted this time?
Former U.S. Ambassador Otto Reich elaborated on this subject in his article The judge who can convict Chávez:
EL NUEVO HERALD – Ex magistrado venezolano implica a militares y funcionarios en narcotráfico
Venezuelan’s hope was high for international intervention after Interpol obtained FARC computer files in 2008.  However, nothing happened in Venezuela, and Hugo Chavez kept his immunity:

The articles from 2008 seem to be all in archives, but my blog postings are available:
Can Venezuelans be freed from abuse of power with the evidence provided by the alleged narco judge?  Please remember that the detrimental information released by Walid Makled in Colombia could not be prosecuted by the United States since Makled was extradited to Venezuela:

Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat wrote about the failure of the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia:
Venezuelans have hope that the opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski will be the new president, but worry about Hugo Chavez’s algorithms manipulating the results of the election. The International Court of Justice, busy at it is, should make time to prosecute Hugo Chavez for fraud if the alleged algorithms and open violation of the vote are true.
Venezuelans need help from world leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
