An Act of Corrupt, Capitalistic and Robolutionary In(Justice)

March 10, 2010

(In Spanish here)

Today the Venezuelan Supreme Court pensioned off 90% of the Court, applying the benefit to all the Justices that were eligible. At the same time, all of these Justices will continue in their functions until Chavez’ Constitutional period ends in 2012. Only one Justice, likely the only honest and ethical one, Justice Marmol Leon opposed it. Here is the decision.

Why you may ask why was this done?

Easy. The National Assembly is about to approve a Law limiting salaries in the Venezuelan Government to no more than around Bs. 9,000 (about US$ 1,200 at the parallel rate), which would limit pensions to this number if they were pensioned off in 2012. Instead, they get their pensions today at the current salaries which is like 4 to 5 TIMES higher and on top of that will stay applying their peculiar version of robolutionary Injustice.

The cynical and unethical behavior of these people never ceases to amaze me!

I guess you could call it an act of corrupt, capitalistic and robolutionary Injustice!
