Corporate managers of investment firm Econoinvest released
The four men were released pending trial
Late on Saturday, the four executive directors of investment firm Econoinvest were released pending trial. They will have to appear in court regularly and were banned from leaving the country.
The trial of Herman Sifontes, Juan Carlos Carvallo, Ernesto Rangel and Miguel Osío will continue its course, but the defendants will face the charges in freedom.
On Friday, relatives of detainees attended a Mass to pray for the release of Econoinvest directors, who were held in detention for two years and seven months.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
