Non-commercial air operations restricted in Maiquetía
Under administrative decision from the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics
The provision is based on Article 78 of the Civil Aeronautics Law.
Under the administrative decision PRE-CJU-285-12 from INAC, published in the Official Gazette No. 40,064, reads as follows: "Any persons engaged in general aviation to and from Maiquetía international airport shall conduct their flight operations with the restrictions, abiding by any authorizations that may be issued by the Venezuelan Aeronautics Authority."
The decision will be effective 30 days after its release in the Official Gazette.
No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
