Nynas proves Gazprombank / Rosneft Venezuela divestments fake news

Rafael Ramirez needs no introduction. While most people know him as former CEO of PDVSA, former Energy Minister, former Venezuela Ambassador to the UN, we know him as the architect of the largest corruption scheme the world has ever seen. Under his watch, PDVSA got close to $1.3 trillion USD worth of income, of which little is left.

Open Letter to DoJ re Cartel de los Soles

Dear Department of Justice,

Further to your recent superseding indictment against Nicolas Maduro and his criminal associates, I want to help with information that could lead to their arrests. Fact is, only those within a rather small circle keep in regular contact with Maduro and co, and know of their whereabouts.

Did Banca Zarattini just filed a fake GDPR request through Didac Sanchez's Eliminalia?

In a desperately mad fuite-en-avant, a number of thugs involved in Venezuela's gargantuan corruption are taking actions against this site. When DDoS and hacking attempts no longer produce expected results, novel ways are being used. Somebody on Frank Leon Holder's behalf took the trouble to file a DMCA request with Google, arguing that content originated in this website was a breach to "their copyrights". It was so brazen that it is worth repeating:
