Maduro has ruled Venezuela by decree since 19 November 2013.

His presidency has coincided with a decline in Venezuela's socioeconomic status, with crime, inflation, poverty and hunger increasing; critics have ascribed this to Chávez and Maduro's economic policies.

The loss of popularity saw the election of an opposition-led National Assembly in 2015 and a movement toward recalling Maduro in 2016, though Maduro still maintains power through loyal political bodies, such as the Supreme Court and electoral authority as well as the military.

Drug trafficking and money laundering incidents

Narcosobrinos incident

Two nephews of Maduro's wife, Efraín Antonio Campo Flores and Francisco Flores de Freitas, were found guilty in a US court of conspiracy to import cocaine in November 2016, with some of their funds possibly assisting Maduro's presidential campaign in the 2013 Venezuelan presidential election and potentially for the 2015 Venezuelan parliamentary elections, with the funds mainly used to "help their family stay in power".


One informant stated that the two often flew out of Terminal 4 of Simon Bolivar Airport, a terminal reserved for the president.

Due to the fact that the nephews were arrested for narcotics trafficking, the media described the nephews as the "narcosobrinos".

Both nephews were sentenced 18 years in prison on 11 December 2017.

After Maduro's nephews were apprehended by the US Drug Enforcement Administration for the illegal distribution of cocaine on 10 November 2015, Maduro posted a statement on Twitter criticizing "attacks and imperialist ambushes", which was viewed by many media outlets as being directed towards the United States.

Secretary of the President investigation

In December 2015 following controversial investigations of money laundered drug money by the Bal Harbour Police Department and Glades County Police without the cooperation of the United States Department of Justice, a report from Miami Herald revealed that much of the drug money was ultimately funneled from multiple banks into the Venezuelan Banesco Bank with some of the largest payments wired to the bank.

It was found that William Amaro Sanchez, a secretary and longtime friend of Maduro who was described as his "right-hand-man", had over $200,000 of the drug money transferred to his account.

Juan Carlos Escort (es), head of Banesco, denied the allegations, although unnamed Banesco employees told The Miami Herald that it was Amaro's account and provided information that included his account number, full name and Venezuelan government identification number.

Odebrecht bribes
Further information: Operation Car Wash


In an investigative interview with Euzenando Prazeres de Azevedo, president of Constructora Odebrecht in Venezuela, the executive revealed how Odebrecht paid $35 million to fund Maduro's 2013 presidential campaign if Odebrecht projects would be prioritized in Venezuela.

Homophobic statements

During a tenth anniversary gathering commemorating the 2002 Venezuelan coup d'état attempt going into the 2012 Venezuelan presidential election, Maduro called opposition members "snobs" and "big faggots".

Look- homosexualism and the historic Left weren't exactly friends. I'm sure if you looked among the Dissos here you would find some eccentric arguing the old line that homosexuality is bourgeois degeneracy and a product of Capitalist decadence. The United States and the Zionist colonial project have been trying to do all they can to destabilize the country so I have no problems with his ruling in the manner he does though I would be a bit more full on if I was in his shoes.

I'm surprised they have time to look at Venezuela given their full time keening for the people in Palestine. Meanwhile they parade the death of foreigner in Ireland and the Irish people in turn abort their children in self abasement.

I meet Venezuelan immigrants almost daily, and whilst I have a healthy scepticism of western media reports, they are not one bit happy with the state of their nation, and they confirm most of the media stories That they should be lagging behind countries like Peru and Bolivia is a disgrace. They should be the most advanced in Latin America.

My biggest gripe with Maduro is his complete inability to deal with crime in a robust manner, despite having troops on the streets and his police force is almost paramilitary.

You have to remember that almost all the Venezuelans in Ireland are from well off families and they all want to go back to the days when their fathers could have trade union leaders and workers shot dead for being uppedy. Maduro has actually been much better at clamping down on crime than Chavez ever was. As for Peru and Bolivia, they are not being targeted by the World Pyromaniac the way Venezuela is.

I've no doubt you agree that only a Party as weird as SF would drone on all day about Gays & then backslap someone who calls opponents "Faggots".

They are utterly broke and can be seen begging, whoring, robbing and selling any shit they can.
