The canned food with a photo of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez found in Peru and the scandal of the suitcase filled with USD 800,000 and seized in Argentina are part of "the same insane plot" against Venezuela, Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicolás Maduro told reporters in Brasilia on Thursday.

Maduro linked both cases and complained about "a global campaign to undermine President Chávez' leadership, characterized by candor and commitment against corruption," Efe quoted.

With regard to an international bench warrant issued by Interpol against Venezuelan businessman Guido Antonini Wilson, the holder of the suitcase, Maduro said that "it forms part of the investigation" and held the Venezuelan government harmless from the affair.
 
Last August 4th, on the eve of Chávez visit to Buenos Aires, the Argentinean customs seized USD 800,000 in cash that Antonini Wilson tried to bring in without declaring the amount. He landed in a private flight from Caracas. High-ranking officials with Argentinean state energy company Enarsa and senior staff with state-run oil holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) were also onboard the plane.
