On Tuesday, November 23rd, lawyer Antonio López Castillo was killed during a "clash," according to the official version. This was followed by an unauthorized search of the property of the López Castillo family. Shortly afterwards, there was another similar "clash." Juan Carlos Sánchez, 38, accused of being the partner of Rolando Guevara, an ex chief police officer and former chief of the Homicide Section at the Scientific, Penal and Criminology Investigation Agency (Cicpc), was found dead at El Edén Hotel, located in Barquisimeto, the capital city of western Lara state. His relatives claimed he was tortured.
Accused of scheming on the attack in Caracas and having recruited the people who placed the explosive device, brothers Rolando and Ottoniel Guevara and their cousin Juan Bautista Guevara have been detained at the Directorate for Intelligence, Security and Prevention (Disip). Their relatives and defense attorneys claimed they were tortured and abducted.
Later, a "star witness" showed up. Giovanny Vásquez involved journalist Patricia Poleo and businessman Nelson Mezherani in Anderson's murder. Four years later, the witness confessed that all his statements were untrue. The public prosecutor's death remains unsolved.
In Spain, on March 11th, 10 bombs blasted in four trains near the Atocha station, the most important in Madrid, resulting in 200 deaths and 1,433 injured people. Perpetrators were Al Qaeda militants who took revenge on one of the US allies in the war against Iraq. They named the attack "Operation Trains of Death."

In July, Iván Rincón, the president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice, made an unilateral decision and dismissed a charge filed against him for releasing the contents of a ruling pending for approval. The judgment was related to President Chávez's possibility of running again for president in the event of reversing his term in office.
On August 15th, a recall referendum against President Chávez was held. On Monday 16th, at daybreak, the National Electoral Council (CNE), backed by the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Carter Center, declared the president's victory in spite of unauthorized transfers of voters to polling stations far from their residences; mass naturalization of foreign citizens, and issuance of ID cards anywhere else except for the institutional identification authorities. All of this resulted in a disproportionate additional amount of more than one million new voters.
