Maduro's cyber troops control the Internet
A study reveals that Venezuela is among the main countries that manipulate the Internet and social networks for political purposes.
After two years of research, Oxford University discovered the presence of organized, equipped, and funded cyber troops whose mission is to deceive and manipulate.
The researchers found that in countries with authoritarian communist regimes, such as Venezuela, China, and Vietnam, these cyber troops have the greatest capabilities.
They explained that when independent information circulates on social networks contradicting official propaganda, cyber troops take action.
They flood the servers of social networking platforms, like Facebook or Twitter, posing as users to shape public opinion.
In order to discredit information and suppress it, they even massively denounce it as inappropriate content.
Former Brazilian prosecutor reveals plan to kill judge
A former attorney general in Brazil has confessed that he planned to kill a Supreme Court judge.
Rodrigo Janot says he came armed to a hearing of the country's highest court with the intention of assassinating one of its 11 justices.
Janot says that he thought of shooting Gilmar Mendes after he told lies about a family member to try to keep him out of a judicial process.
Janot says God's hand has prevented him from materializing his plan when he crossed paths with Mendes that day before the session began.
As a precautionary measure, the authorities raided the ex-prosecutor's residence in search of weapons and cancelled his license, in addition to ordering him to stay away from the Supreme Court and its members.
