The anti-corruption crusade undertaken by the Venezuelan government does not convince Venezuelans. According to a poll entrusted by the Bolivarian Information and Communication System (Sibci), people are not amenable to the reasons for recent claims of administrative wrongdoing.

The telephone probe –carried out on July 15 and 16- suggests that 52.3% of interviewees fear that the claims of corruption are "a government strategy pretending to fight against corruption." Complaints are welcome –because of their motivation- by 37.8% of interviewees.

The survey includes a sample of 29.71% who call themselves government supporters; 22.29% claim to be independent and only 4.9% are dissenters.

Furthermore, half of the interviewees are afraid that the charges made "are not going anywhere."

The behind-the-scenes of the events of April 11, 2002

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
