When Lucas Rincon speaks, is he listening?

August 6, 2004

Minister of Interior and Justice, Lucas Rincon, best remembered for his words in April 2002: “The President was asked to resign and he accepted it”, said yesterday:


“Los indicios que manejamos, y provienen de los organismos de inteligencia, me hacen pensar en que puede existir la probabilidad de hechos violentos antes, durante y después del referéndum”




“The indications we are handling and are coming from intelligence organizations, make me think that there is a probability of violent acts before, during and alter the referendum”


His intelligence turned out to be right when minutes later Chavistas attacked opposition groups in Plaza La Candelaria. Let’s see if he does anything about it now!
