2012 Venezuela's budget expense exceeds last year total amount
Deputies have approved credits for USD 20 billion
With this additional expense, 2012 annual budget, which started at USD 69.3 billion, is already at USD 89.6 billion.
In fact, the execution of the budget exceeds the 2011 total expense that was USD 86.6 billion, according to data issued by the Ministry of Finance.
Such a growth is because of the need to meet the increasing requirements of government agencies to cover their operating expenses and labor commitments.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
