Victor Sierra, Torino Capital y la nueva Venezuela

2017-06-09T09:15:14.327+00:00

Van muchos muertos. Muchos heridos. Sufrimiento generalizado. Protestas. La vida de la sociedad venezolana, en lo que a las grandes ciudades respecta, está en perenne caos. La anarquía impera. Y el peligro de ese rio revuelto, es que hay mucho espabilao negociando posiciones, tratando de insertarse, de colearse por la puerta trasera. Mientras nuestros jóvenes pierden la vida a razón de uno por día, los operadores de oficio continúan en lo suyo, tratando de oxigenar al chavismo, de "negociar una salida". Me refiero, por supuesto, a quienes contemplan la Constituyente como solución, a quienes quieren dar garantías a los criminales que han destruído Venezuela. Me refiero, particularmente, a Victor Sierra, a Torino Capital, a Francisco Rodriguez, y a la posibilidad, real, de que ese tipo de individuos tengan roles preponderantes en la nueva Venezuela.Hace apenas unos días, se conoció el guiso de Dinosaur Group y Goldman Sachs, comprando bonos de deuda venezolana por un valor mucho menor al actual. Muchos expresaron su repudio ante tal guiso. Comenté entonces que la arrechera no debía, en mi opinión, ser dirigida a Goldman Sachs, sino a los venezolanos que se prestan, permiten y colaboran en tales guisos. Victor Sierra, de Torino Capital, se sintió aludido por mi comentario y me contactó para explicarme, off the record, que ni él ni su firma tienen nada que ver en dichas actividades. Me dijo que ni él ni su firma han hecho un negocio con PDVSA o Venezuela. En su mensaje, afirmó que auditorías a su firma han "salido... con 5 estrellas...". Luego equiparó su trabajo con el de los bancos y fondos "más grandes del mundo", intento excusar actos criminales, y mintió descaradamente sobre su trabajo y empleados.Por insistencia suya prometí que nuestro intercambio iba a ser "off the record", mas como mi primera lealtad, como venezolano, es para con mi país, estimo necesario publicar aqui mi intercambio con Sierra. Es crucial que la sociedad venezolana sepa cómo piensa esta gente, cómo argumenta, racionaliza y excusa sus actos. Pero, sobre todo, es imperante exponer el profundo desprecio que sienten hacia quien quiera que los cuestiona. Convencidos están de su infalibilidad. El tiempo que me tomo escribir Torino Capital FINRA en Google, bastó para chequear si las actividades de Torino son "5 estrellas"... En cuanto al resto de sus argumentos, mejor leen el intercambio, comenzando desde abajo:Begin forwarded message:From: alek boyd Subject: Re: SaludoDate: 8 June 2017 14:15:12 BSTTo: Victor Sierra Gracias por tomarte el tiempo de responder Victor.Uno de los grandes males de nuestro tiempo, es la pretensión que la responsabilidad -sea personal, colectiva o en cualquiera otra forma- puede evadirse con el argumento de la complejidad. Todos los herederos de un patriarca tienen los mismos derechos ante la ley, aquí y en China, salvo que exista un testamento que defina los derechos específicos de cada individuo en cuestión, o haya mediado en vida algún tipo de arreglo entre las partes (como en este caso). No obstante, los hechos demuestran que dos de los herederos legales del patrimonio de Capriles Ayala fueron ilegalmente despojados de su parte, en abierta colusión entre una parte de la familia, abogados y cortes. Como es natural por lazos consanguíneos, tu vas a defender hasta el ultimo de tus días las acciones de tu padre. Desde mi punto de vista, tu padre es un hampón, el Michu otro, y todos los que de alguna manera coadyuvaron con la consecución del robo multimillonario a los Capriles Cannizaro pertenecen a la misma ralea. Esa colectividad de gente amoral es la que, ultimadamente, ha causado que Venezuela esté en la penosa situación en la que está.For the record, he enviado solicitudes de comentarios a Michu en el pasado, pero nunca ha enviado respuesta.Pero, insisto, los hijos no deben ser culpados de las acciones de los padres, a menos que, consciente y activamente, en edad legal y plena facultad de condiciones, hayan participa[...]



#LondonBridge and Tory cuts to The Metropolitan Police

2017-06-05T13:09:06.401+00:00

Let me just say that I am very upset and angry about the latest terrorist attack in #LondonBridge. Only days before, and at roughly the same time, we were walking those very streets near Borough Market and London Bridge. It could have been my dear friends, my wife... Then I ponder on the goals of those thugs: what can they possibly achieve with such stupid, backward and senseless attack? Do any of these deranged imbeciles really think that driving into a crowd, or stabbing people is going to bring Western civilisation and its tenets to a halt? If anything their actions are only increasing the world's resolve to eradicate them, and their nihilistic ideology from the face of the earth.But today, the debate dominating the agenda is whether savage Tory cuts have diminished law enforcement capabilities:I'm a serving firearms officer and the Government is wrong to claim police cuts have nothing to do with recent attacksDespite her denials, Theresa May’s cuts to police numbers have made attacks like London and Manchester much more likelyFrom personal experience, I think I can provide an answer to whether the Conservatives' insane approach to balancing the budget -at the expense of core services- has had any impact.As readers of this blog may remember, in November 2014 thugs -either sent or hired by Venezuelans- broke into our flat, stole my laptops, and left ominous threats of sexual abuse against my children. The reaction and actions of The Metropolitan Police in this particular case have been amateurish, unprofessional, deeply unsatisfactory and utterly inefficient.A few things became evident since my first interaction with Metropolitan Police officers that arrived in our building, after calling 999, the most shocking being, of course, to hear the inspector assigned to the case tell me "you brought this upon yourself" due to my exposing corruption and white collar criminals. A great line to reassure a victim no doubt. But that claim came after the opening qualifier: "I'm dealing with over 20 cases at the minute and yours being just a regular break in to steal gadgets is not a priority."Those words set what would follow. The Metropolitan Police officer in charge did not know how to take a screenshot of the CCTV video provided as evidence. The CCTV itself was only collected from our building a week after the incident. The mobile phone left in the flat didn't produce a single lead. My questions about access to public CCTV in buses, train and Tube stations to determine movements of suspects were dismissed with "we can't do that due to data protection." One unpleasant interaction after another led me to raise a complaint, which was dealt with an investigations supervisor who was equally clueless, and uncooperative, excusing lack of progress on jurisdictional grounds. While I was reassured that images of suspects and information had been shared within the Metropolitan Police with anti terrorism unit, and with other investigative departments, the fact is the thugs that came to terrorize my family got away with it.Time and again I heard apologetic arguments from the Metropolitan Police, about being understaffed, underpaid and stretched far beyond its capabilities. And who is responsible for that situation? David Cameron, George Osborne, Theresa May and the rest of the nasty people at the top of the Tory party, for whom balancing a budget is prioritized over people's health, education and protection. And things have only gotten worse. As disgusting and unpalatable as Jeremy Corbyn is, he got one thing right when he said: "You can't protect people on the cheap."Theresa May has been repeatedly warned about the consequences of police cuts. Does she care, or rather, what exactly has she done about it? Theresa May was very much part of Cameron / Osborne government. She can not, at this juncture, skirt her personal responsibility in the mess created by her and her predecessors. Instead of "accusing" Corbyn of "trying to sneak into Number 10" -which is precisely what she did- she must apply to herself some of th[...]
