Venezuela jails 3 DirecTV executives as US firm ends service

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan authorities have jailed three local
DirecTV executives under an arrest warrant issued after the Dallas-based
company abruptly cut off services to the South American country last
month, citing U.S. sanctions against the socialist government, the men’s
lawyer said Friday.

Carlos Villamizar, one of the three men, told reporters in his
attorney’s office before surrendering that he had no prior knowledge
that the services were being ended and that he was innocent of any crimes.

“It was a total surprise,” he said, choking up with emotion over concern
for his family and two young children. “I’m innocent.”

Villamizar said he was a victim along with at least 600 fellow DirecTV
employees in Venezuela who lost their jobs under the decision made by
the company’s executives in the U.S. Villamizar then left the lawyer’s
office and surrendered at a feared Caracas jail called the Helecoide,
where the other two men were believed to be held.

The two other executives, Héctor Rivero and Rodolfo Carrano, were
arrested Thursday, said lawyer Jesus Loreto, who is representing the
trio. He called their detention unjust, saying the men had cooperated
with authorities, appearing this week first at chief prosecutor’s office
and then the Venezuelan Supreme Court.

All three of the men are Venezuelan citizens, Loreto said.

Typical right winger. Worried about his immediate family, but
couldn't give a sht about the damage his country suffered because of
the #FAKE_NEWS he spread.
Did he manage to shed any tears?
If so, I'm touched.

This is simple. No matter whether they like Maduro or not what AT&T &
DirecTV did was totally wrong not only for the large number of customers
that has been affected but for the large number of workers that has been
laid off just because to follow up a political issue between two
governments. - I don't think that those executives are innocent. They
are supposed to know everything about the business they manage. I think
they are playing the fool.
