Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Thursday announced that he would ask for special powers from the National Assembly (AN), to punish with the maximum possible penalty any corruption-related crimes at all levels and in all forms.

I am ready to "face this monster with a thousand heads," said Maduro.

The president noted that authorities have dealt heavy blows to corruption at the highest levels. "We have inflicted blows (on officials,) from governors to presidents of institutes and companies."

He remarked he feels a bitterness that keeps him awake. "The bitterness I feel will not go away; I have it inside. I feel bitterness because there is a part of the country that does not react" to corruption cases.
