Official poll: Most Venezuelans regard anti-corruption efforts as insincere
A high as 55.7% do not deem anti-corruption efforts as appropriate
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."
More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
