Medium joins Twitter, censors information on Venezuela's Corruption

Medium has joined the fray of social media censors. As usual, the Derwick thugs are behind this move. No problem though: below I repost what Medium considers a breach of their rules.

Associates of Derwick keep using U.S. courts for censorship

The whole series of investigations of a criminal clan otherwise known as Derwick Associates, that I started back in 2012, was triggered by a court case. I admit it surprised me that the epitome of Bolichico class would be so brazen, and deluded, to think it could silence perceived enemies by launching frivolous civil lawsuits in U.S. courts. I am referring, of course, to the case that Derwick Associates initiated in New York against Banco Venezolano de Crédito and Oscar García Mendoza, then withdrew from that jurisdiction and relaunched in Florida.
