The former Chief of Staff under the government of President Carlos Andrés Pérez, Iván Carratú Molina, fears that the National Armed Forces as an institution tend to disappear as militias steadily grow.

"In Venezuela, the militias are on the rise. They are indoctrinated civilians, like in Cuba, with eight million militia members," Carratú Molina said in a videochat hosted by El Universal with journalist Roberto Giusti.

The Admiral lamented that 14 military classes have graduated "under (President Hugo) Chávez's ideology." Nevertheless, he is positive of the existence of "annoyed, very disappointed military officers."

"The army is super divided, atomized and controlled," he stressed, adding that "the military are another piece of the continental and national leftwing."

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.
