Venezuelan Parliament Chief Planning Lawsuits Against Media Outlets

27 31.05.2015 Инфо

Venezuelan parliament chief Diosdado Cabello said in an interview on Sunday that he plans to file lawsuits in Spain and the United States.
The forthcoming lawsuits address media reports that link him and other top officials to cocaine trafficking and money laundering.
The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. federal prosecutors were gathering evidence from former cocaine traffickers and military defectors as part of an investigation into Cabello.
In January, the Spanish newspaper ABC published a story alleging Cabello's former security chief had fled for the United States with evidence that Cabello was involved in the drug trade.
Cabello denies the charges, and has sued three Venezuelan media outlets for republishing information from the ABC story.
