Trumped up charges or incompetence?

February 27, 2003

Uups, before I forget, let me tell you one last story. The Government supposedly carried out an investigation in order to charge the leadership of the striking oil workers and have the judge order their detention. Well, in the end only six of the seven were eventually charged. The reason, simple: The Attorney General’s office did not have either the national identity number or the address of the labor relations leaders of the oil union. Thus, he was not charged. Interestingly, when a Venezuelan man was caught at Gatwick airport last week with a grenade, the Government immediately provided all the details about the man, including the fact that his ID number was fake. Incompetence? Rush Job? Hatchet job? You be the judge……
