Venezuela was reported at the top of the list of countries buying arms from Spain in the first half of 2012 and ratifies its position, for two consecutive years, as Spain's main client, the authorities informed.

From January-June, Hugo Chávez's Government purchased USD 217.54 million in arms, which is 26.5% of the total amount of arms exports reported by Spain, according to a document presented by the Economy Ministry to the Congress this week, AP cited. 

The purchase mostly entails the acquisition of the last military vessel (out of eight) ordered by Venezuela to Spanish ship maker Navantia.

Gagging Twitter users

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
