Justice, Chavez style

April 25, 2003

On January 20th. I made this post in which a guy on top of a jeep is showing shooting at the opposition demonstration in the town of Charallave:








The next day I showed these pictures of men with guns also shooting at the crowd:

One person died that day and 29 were injured by bullets, all part of the opposition march. A few days later, a judge ordered the guy on top of the jeep, its driver and one of the gunmen arrested. I just saw on TV the judge, whose name I believe is Pedro Natera, explaining that he was removed by the Government from his position in retaliation for this decision and that the three orders of arrest have been cancelled. All three men were activists of Chavez’ MVR party. Such is justice in the Chávez revolution.
