Maduro infiltrates criminal groups in region
Maduro's regime is infiltrating surrounding countries with violent criminal groups
Former Venezuelan congressman Oscar Perez suggests that Maduro is doing this to force countries to tighten their immigration policies, thus preventing the Venezuelan exodus.
Perez points to the increasing frequency Venezuelans commit violent crimes in the countries to which they flee as evidence.
Last year, journalist Daniel Blanco stated that Maduro could have declared an "open door policy" to facilitate the exit of criminals from the country.
One of the most terrifying crimes in recent years was reported in Peru, where a group of six Venezuelans cruelly dismembered their victims.
Experts warn of controversial Chinese project in Peru
Experts are warning the proposed project between the Chinese communist regime and Peru to dredge the Amazon River will endanger the entire ecosystem.
The plan, framed in the initiative of the Chinese Communist Party (or the CCP) called "The Belt and Road," aims to make the Peruvian Amazon River region more navigable.
The project, however, generates great environmental concerns and raises unanswered questions.
The CCP’s multimillion-dollar investment will grant the China shared custody for 20 years of the Amazon riverbeds, allowing it to charge money for those who pass through.
Analysts warn this could be an endeavor of the Chinese regime devised for its companies to influence the world with communist ideology.
If approved in November, experts speculate that the debt Peru owes China will allow the CCP the right to seize the natural wealth of the South American nation.
Bolivian fires destroy over 3 million hectares of forest
Forest fires in Bolivia have devastated more than three million hectares.
The area burned so far is equivalent to the size of Switzerland, according to a report by the Friends of Nature Foundation.
The largest fire continues to blaze in Chiqui-tania, a dry forest in southeastern Bolivia, at the foot of the Andes Mountains.
The fires began in August when burning to renew pastures and remove fallow—a common practice among farmers and ranchers—went out of control.
Assailants to pay victims’ medical expenses in Brazil
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro has passed a law requiring people who assault women to pay for medical treatment for victims.
The law, approved by Congress, seeks not only to hold them accountable in the criminal sphere, but also for the economic and moral damage caused by the crime.
The new law also determines that attackers must pay for "safety devices," including systems that alert the victims if the assailants are approaching them.
