Former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe accused Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of masterminding the murder of thousands of citizens.
In a post on his Twitter page, Uribe wrote that Chavez ”wants to cover up the unpunished murder of 19 thousand Venezuelans each year.”
In another Uribe wrote that Chavez ”wants to plug up that between 1998 and 2011 homicides increased from just over 4,000 to almost 19,000 per year.”
Uribe called Chavez a murderer and said that Chavez wants to “cover that he has made Venezuela a haven for terrorists.”
Uribe also gave his support for the presidential candidacy of Henrique Capriles, saying “Venezuela will hopefully have decent private investment without the Chavez dictatorship.”
