Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes time. Lots of time. Time is money. Visitors from banks' compliance departments, media, academia, and law enforcement, are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Media, lifting stuff from here and reprinting as breaking news, ought to remember how untenable it is to try to beat chronology. To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism and help us expose rampant corruption.

Congressman Carlos Ramos questions Gemalto

Fortunately, somebody in Venezuela is paying attention to the investigations carried out in this blog. The letter below, from Congressman Carlos Ramos (same one who made public the $29 billion hole in FONDEN), addresses some of the issues about the contract between Gemalto and a dodgy Cuban intermediary without track record, for the provision of electronic IDs to Venezuela. I will make sure that a copy of the letter is received and signed for by Gemalto. Considering that a Venezuelan Congressman is asking the questions, maybe Gemalto will have to answer.
