Department of “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”

Soon-to-Be Inventor of the Involuntary Prison Hunger Strike

Jails Minister Iris Varela has just announced she will no longer allow inmates’ families to bring them food or toiletries during visits.

Turns out the state has made a “commitment to feed the inmates three times a day and supply them a personal care kit,” and as we know the Venezuelan state always, always, always makes good on its commitments.

It’s a safety thing, you know? Somebody has to crack down on all those automatic weapons baked into the ponques, right?

  1. I think the main concern against the food intake was drugs buried in the food. To their credit, they certainly do know how to take care of their drug business.

  3. In a typically chavista move, they try to eliminate the competition and ensure that the GN is the sole supplier of guns and drugs in Venezuela’s jails.

  6. OT – Excellent that CC has finally turned into a blog that just mocks and makes fun of the government since it has finally dawned on FT and JC (as well as the regulars) that this medium will have zero effect on the outcome of the elections. It may have an effect on the way the 23,000 registered voters living abroad decide to vote but hey, that’s means nothing.

    Iris fixed the problem but it’s still not good enough, is it? Fixing the problem by killing all and sundry would be more CC style. Long live Ledezma!!

  7. Yeah, the Venezuelan government is just a horrible human rights abusing monster. After all, every other nation, including the divine and perfect UNITED STATES OF AMERICA allows inmate family members and others to bring those inmates food and medical supplies without any kind of restriction at all right?

    • And it is amusing that Toro cites a plan for a natural gas pipeline that was always presented as being an initial plan without final commitments of any kind as “evidence” that the Venezuelan government “doesn’t keep its commitments.”

    • Do you know that the food that their families bring then is only one they get? The statement assuring that they will get three foods a day and a sanitary kit is pretty much an admission that the inmates are not fed or giving sanitary products that’s how it is in Venezuelan prisons. Of course if the US or any other country in the world didn’t give food to their inmates it would be outrageous if they forbade their families from giving them food, but wait they actually do.
