Sanciones a Venezuela

Conseguido en un foro....
vdebate
Las posibles sanciones contra el pais ponen los pelos de punta. Espero que no se llegue a ese extremo. Menos mal que la idea proviene de un grupito de legisladores y no del gobierno de USA.En vez de proponer convertir a Venezuela en estado promotor del terrorismo, deberian enfilar contra personas y no contra un colectivo, el cual en buena medida no apoya al regimen. Si quieren sancionar, por ejemplo, quitenle las visas o congelen las cuentas de los jerarcas chavistas, donde les duele, para que los veamos super arrechos. No digo que el regimen no se lo merezca, pero desafortunadamente afectaria a todos los venezolanos. Meterlos en un solo saco seria castigar a muchos por culpa de unos pocos. Seria una error politico de la administracion Bush en relacion con Latinoamerica. Tendria muy poco apoyo politico dentro y fuera de USA. Pero lo peor es que eso es precisamente lo que quiere Chavez, para victimizrse, aplicar leyes de guerra, convertirse en un gobernante indefinido, y someter con represion a todo el pais. Seria ponerle en bandeja la instauracion abierta y descarada de un dictadura (no dismulada, como ahora). Las sanciones contra Venezuela convertirian a Chavez en el heroe mundial antiyanqui. No hay que darle el gusto. Bush debe dejar que Chavez se desgaste solo. Es la mejor politica. Recemos pues, para que no pase de ser una idea aislada de unos legisladores republicanos.
Saludos, Eliecer


What Venezuelans can expect when their country is designated a State Sponsor of Terrorism DIFFERENT ANGLE by Kenneth Rijock

What Venezuelans can expect when their country is designated a State Sponsor of Terrorism 11 March 2008
For those readers who have enquired as to what Venezuelan nationals can expect on the day that the US Department of State designates their country as a "State Sponsor of Terrorism," because its government has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism, we summarise the consequences thereof. The strict sanctions imposed are indeed broad and powerful. The alternate term, "State Supported Terrorism," is sometimes employed. After reading this article, those whose financial, personal and vocational situation allows them and their loved ones to leave the country may wish to consider this option, for the economic and political situation in a designated Venezuela will rapidly deteriorate into chaos.
Please note that there may be additional sanctions imposed that do not appear here. Here is an itemised list of what can be expected, based upon the applicable Federal laws, which are cited at the > end of this article: US citizens and entities will be prohibited from engaging in any financial transactions with the government of Venezuela without a specific license from OFAC.
There will be special processing procedures for Venezuelan national seeking a visa to enter the United States. Specifically, there will be no non-immigrant visas issued to any Venezuelan without special agency approval at the highest level. Travel to the US may thus be effectively terminated.
Sovereign Immunity is waived, which permits families and next of kin of terrorist victims to bring civil actions for damages, in US District Court, against the government of Venezuela. Imports of goods from Venezuela lose any duty-free exemption that they previously enjoyed. All tax credits for income earned in Venezuela will be thereafter denied.
Loans to Venezuela or its institutions or agencies, or other borrowers from international non-governmental organisations will be opposed by the United States.
Any Venezuelan government-controlled companies will be prohibited from participating in any US Department of Defence contracts that exceed $100,000. A ban upon the export of arms and arms-related products to Venezuela.Severe limitation upon dual-use exports from the US > to Venezuela. Dual-use products have both civilian and military applications. There is a 30-day advance notification period where the US Congress is advised of the proposed export. Total restrictions upon US economic assistance to Venezuela.
Venezuelan financial institutions, which will themselves be the subject of OFAC sanctions at the same time, will also pose a problem, as their US correspondent accounts, their window into the US financial structure, will end up being closed. How will Venezuelans purchase goods and services from US companies?
What I have listed above is a rudimentary forecast of what can be expected after designation; additional sanctions may also be imposed. For your specific questions, you are advised to seek the counsel of a competent legal professional. Though limited to the US, financial institutions in other countries avoid sanctioned countries, due to the possibility that they may themselves be sanctioned, or lose access to US financial markets, by trading with a sanctioned country. It therefore becomes a de facto global sanction.
