VENEZUELA : While Government Tries To Blame Lopez For Deaths, Paper Shows Otherwise















by moctavio





Ever since last Wednesday's student March which left two dead, the Government has tried to say that Leopoldo Lopez and Maria Corina Machado were responsible for the the deaths right after the demonstration ended. 




But usually pro-Government paper Ultimas Noticias has done an investigation of videos and pictures and what it has found is a carefully orchestrated withdrawal of the police, which were replaced by Intelligence police officers and plainclothesmen, who were wearing and used guns against running students.






What this shows is the power of the smartphone, as the evidence came mostly fro amateur tapings (note that one of them, the person making the video is hiding under a car)







Here is the text and the video






and here is a summary of the text for those that do not speak Spanish. 




I recommend watching the video (at the end) after reading the text:









"It was at 3:13 PM when Bassil Alejandro Dacosta fell. The line of fire was in the hands of individuals identified with unirforms, plates and vehicles of the Bolivarain Intelligence Service (Sebin) accompanied by others dressed as civilians. They had taken over between the Tracabordo and the Ferrenquin corners of La Candelaria, after the Bolivarain National Police withdrew its troops





Here is the reconstruction: A group of students tries to go up from Monroy to Tracabordo. The march was over. Those left were screaming at police. They advanced towards a Sebin motorcycle, knocking it to the ground. The Sebin and civilians move forward and start shooting pistols rifles. The students withdraw. Others, among which was Bassil Dacosta, cross to a lateral street. It is not clear why they decide to turn around 12 seconds later, they cross the line of fire. Dacosta falls. At no point does the shooting stop.




Dacosta is the next to last of a line of students that crosses trying to escape the bullets. His buddies pick him up and carry him away"




Witnesses say the corner had been taken over by men and women in motorcycles, like "those you see in TV". All dressed as civilains. Some with helmets and t-shirts. Some with their faces covered. They were shooting at the protesters in the Monroy corner. "They would shoot with their arms out and then hide". In the wall of a City office there are at least 10 traces of bullet impacts.




The civilians talked to the Sebin officers and withdrew. Sebin officers occupied their places.





At the head of the group came a Kawasaki Versys 1000 motorcycle with another large guy with kaki shirt and jeans with a short wave radio in his hand. He seems to be the leader. After Dacosta falls, he gestures towards a man in gray camouflage clothes.




At the instant of Dacosta's death a photographic sequence shows at least seven men wielding their weapons. Five are shooting standing up, one is shooting in the air and four are shooting at the protesters. Two wear uniforms.






One of them wears a white shirt, green military pants, helmet and blck lenses, He moves in a motorcycle with official palate 2-177. The other wears a long sleeved black shirt, jeans and black shows. No helmet or glasses. The civilians were acting in coordination with those in uniform.





One of the shooters picks up the motorcycle overthrown by the students. Two pick up the shells from the bullets, they get on their motorcycles and leave.





Questions: Maduro said those responsible had been identified, a day later the scientific police was still studying the scene?



Why did the National withdraw from the scene?



Why were weapons used to repress the protest?




Why were there civilians with uniformed Sebin officers repressing the march?




From the video: Why did the motorcycles easily cross between the students and the police?





Why did the guy jump over the police only to be seen shooting later?"







Here are a few pictures of the guy in white from three different angles, one of them while shooting:











Meanwhile the investigative police last night went to Leopoldo Lopez' parents' home and his home reportedly to arrest him, in part for being responsible for the death of Dacosta. 


 He was not there. Maduro called him a coward for not turning himself in.






Tonight Lopez distributes this video, upping the ante in these protests calling for a march to the Prosecutors office to demand a number of things and to turn himself in for crimes he has not committed. 




He is asking everyone to wear white, as a sign that this is a peaceful movement.










For the Government this represents a quandary. 



Jailing Lopez will only ignite things even more, but it was Maduro who accused him of crimes, nobody knows specifically which ones. 



Will the Prosecutor obey Maduro and jail Lopez? 



Will a Judge sign the order to capture him?






Can the Prosecutor accuse Lopez while Ultimas Noticias has shown clear evidence that it was police and civilians in official motorcycles who were shooting at that instant at the students. 



Will they go after those responsible for Dacostas's death?




It is certainly an interesting week to be here.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
