Companies from China, United States and Canada have a big question mark as to lawfulness of governance in Venezuela. For this reason, they hesitate to invest in the country, said Adolfo Salgueiro, an expert in international law.

The lawyer pointed out that his advice has been sought as to the doubts of one of the major Chinese operators in Venezuela.

"Despite in the practice, upon the ruling of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) (dismissing the issue of President Hugo Chávez's absence), the government more or less gets over it, certainly, such ruling is very peculiar, to such an extent that it could be challenged under a new government," Salgueiro reasoned.

He thinks as well that Chávez comeback to Venezuela could sort out the issue. "Suppose he can be sworn in and that can be credible by means of a record signed by the TSH, therefore, this could make the situation more reliable."

For Gustavo Linares Benzo, a lawyer specialized in administrative law, the major creditor and financier, that is: China has doubts regarding the lawfulness of the Venezuelan government. "An attempt has been made to give the issue another turn on the grounds of the authorization (granted to President Chávez by the National Assembly, AN), yet in the light of such doubt, the law can barely help, because it is based on a fact."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
