Mug shot of Judge Maikel Moreno

February 27, 2003

Another picture of the not so honorable Judge Maikel Moreno, whose previous bouts with law led the Chavez administration to name him as a judge in order to “clean up” the Venezuelan judicial system. Twice imprisoned for homicide, once convicted, Judge Moreno was the one who ordered the two most important leaders of the opposition jailed last week at the request of the Attorney General’s office. Of course, the law says he can’t be a judge, but you can’t pay attention to such details in the midst of a revolution.
