Venezuela: Sentence against reporter ratified by appeals Court

By Miguel Octavio | The Devil's Excrement

20.02.05 | With the expediency that characterizes this Government when it is a matter of going against its enemies, reporter Ibeyise Pacheco’s appeal was rejected by the higher Court and the sentence against her for defamation was ratified. The reporter will have to serve nine months in jail for defamation against a member of the military, unless the Supreme Court gives a different opinion.

Curious how no charges for corruption have been brought against anyone in six years; how over a hundred cases of political murder remain with nobody being accused but political cases against the opposition and reporters are quickly brought to trial and, as in this case, receive a sentence and even and appeal in a short time.
