Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Time is money. Regular visitors from banks' compliance departments, academia, business intelligence, and law enforcement are encouraged -if they find useful information here- to donate to continue our efforts. 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 this site's editor full name, and fake email addresses (alek.boyd.arregui@gmail.com) to send copyright infringement claims / take down requests to web hosting companies (exhibit Hostgator). The attempt is yet another effort paid by utterly corrupt thugs to erase information about their criminal activities. Infodio.com has no issues with other websites / journalists using / posting information published here, so long as the source is properly cited.

Nicolas Maduro's antibloqueo law against U.S. sanctions: Corruption made law

Our interpretation of Nicolas Maduro's regime anti U.S. sanctions constitutional law (see pdf below) isn't verbose. In short, Maduro has vested himself with an instrument that does not exist in Venezuela's jurisprudence (constitutional law), cloaks it under ius cogens, to do whatever off-the-books business he sees fit, with whichever entity, local or international, in the most absolute obscurity. No authority in the land is to learn what, when, or how deals under it are done. Proceeds -which could be gotten in either traditional monetary instruments or in crypto- are to be kept hidden from Venezuela's Treasury. Publication of any deal generated under this framework is expressly prohibited. Lots of mentions to "national security", read chavista subjectivism is spirit behind it. It is, effectively, corruption made law.
