Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Visiting media looking for a quick run down on Venezuela's gargantuan corruption, have the decency to at least cite the source when plagiarising this site's content without attribution (exhibit Reuters here and here, exhibit Bloomberg here, exhibit OCCRP here). To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption. Note added 28/06/2021: impostors are using INFODIO's former editor's full name, and a fake email address (alek.boyd.arregui at to send copyright infringement claims / take down requests to web hosting companies (exhibit Hostgator). The attempt is yet another effort paid by corrupt thugs to erase information about their criminal activities. has no issues with other websites / journalists using / posting information published here, so long as the source is properly cited.

Switzerland's justice (Endri Gega) working for Alex Saab

In the latest episode of Alex Saab's saga, we learn that his counsel is using a ruling by Swiss "prosecutor" Endri Gega to quash extradition from Cape Verde to face criminal charges brought by U.S. Department of Justice. Just have a listen to what Gega has to say about his role:

Contrast Gega's "do as I say, not as I do" philosophy with his absurd decision to shut down a legitimate MLAT request from DoJ.

Moreover, compare a ruling involving Saab from Switzerland's Federal Tribunal -presumably a higher authority within Switzerland's judiciary- with Geneva's Public Prosecution -Gega's office- decision about laundering of millions of dollars at UBS. So a competent court of law found against Saab in Switzerland. Will someone inform Gega, or the nice folk representing Saab?
