Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced on Friday that he was to request an enabling law next Tuesday to the National Assembly to establish "strict rules that work as pedagogic and punitive rules" against corruption.

Maduro also remarked that new laws should also be drafted in order to permit funding of the political activity of both people and political parties.  It would be "a public funding system of the democratic and political activities of the citizens, and political parties and movements," he explained.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
