  • Description

    FORMER VENEZUELAN DICTATOR MARCOS PEREZ JIMENEZ, ACCUSED BY THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT OF MURDER AND STEALING PUBLIC FUNDS, IS IN A MIAMI JAIL FOLLOWING HIS ARREST BY U.S. MARSHALS ON WEDNESDAY. A FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERED HIS ARREST AFTER A NEW ORLEANS COURT REJECTED HIS APPEAL TO AVOID EXTRADITION TO HIS OWN COUNTRY.

    JIMENEZ HAS BEEN LIVING IN MIAMI SINCE ESCAPING FORM VENEZUELA IN 1958. THE VENEZUELAN AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN TRYING TO EXTRADITE HIM ON CHARGES INVOLVING FOUR MURDERS AND THE THEFT OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

    JIMENEZ CLAIMS HE WOULD NOT RECEIVE A FAIR TRAIL IN VENEZUELA AND THAT HE WOULD BE THE OBJECT OF PERSONAL AND POLITICAL REVENGE. HE IS NOW HOPING THAT A U.S. COURT OF APPEAL WILL UPHOLD HIS APPLICATION TO RESIST DEPORTATION.
