BBC News viciously attacks
Venezuela (Daka case).
I wonder what excuse they have now...
Take a look:

Venezuela's government seizes electronic goods
Bargain hunters flocked to Daka shops after the president's announcement
Hundreds of bargain hunters in Venezuela flocked to the Daka chain of
shops after President Nicolas Maduro ordered their seizure.
They were hoping to find electronic goods at much-reduced prices.
President Maduro accused the Daka chain of charging exorbitant prices
for the goods and said it would now be forced to have
But the opposition blames government mismanagement
of the economy for high inflation.
On a speech on Friday night, President Maduro promised to sell off
Daka's stock of plasma televisions, washing machines and other
"We're doing this for the good of the nation. Leave nothing on the
shelves, nothing in the warehouses!" he said.
Bargain hunters were quick to join overnight queues to buy the
merchandise, some of it at a quarter of the price listed earlier in the
Mr Maduro said government inspectors had found goods that were
overpriced by as much as 1,000%.
He said a small air-conditioning unit was selling
for 36,000 bolivars ($5,730) at Daka, while the same unit cost 7,000
bolivars ($1,113) in state shops.
Daka's owners have not responded to the allegations.
But BBC Caracas correspondent Irene Caselli says
goods at state shops are often very difficult to find and sell very
quickly when available.
She says state shops buy dollars to pay for
imported goods at the official rate of around 6.3 bolivars per dollar.
But private importers often complain official dollars are not readily
available and that they must buy dollars on the black market at rates
about seven times higher, our correspondent adds.
The move against Daka comes after weeks of government warnings against
pre-Christmas price rises.
President Maduro often accuses wealthy businessmen of hoarding goods in
order to push up prices.
But critics of his government say economic
mismanagement, rather than unscrupulous retailers, is responsible for
inflation and shortages of basic goods such as milk and toilet
Correspondents say inflation, now running at 54%, has become an
important issue in next month's local elections.
Growing economic problems in the oil-producing nation have dented Mr
With municipal elections due across Venezuela on 8 December, recent
opinion polls have shown the president's ratings have declined by about
10% in recent months.
Opposition leader Henrique Capriles - who was narrowly defeated by Mr
Maduro in presidential elections last April - wants next month's vote to
become a quasi-referendum on the president.
Must be that:
opposition blames government mismanagement of the economy for high inflation
So, the product was really expensive in Daka, says the opposition because of the
Poor opposition, defending Daka from the horrors of an oppressive regime that
attacks poor stores... Or so implies BBC News. I have not seen ANY official
opposition leader say a word about it... I will soon show you why. But let's
continue with the BBC News story.
correspondent Irene Caselli says goods at state shops are often very difficult
to find and sell very quickly when available
He said a
small air-conditioning unit was selling for 36,000 bolivars ($5,730) at Daka,
while the same unit cost 7,000 bolivars ($1,113) in state shops.
The unit costs $1,113 in state shops, in Daka it costs $5,730 because, as BBC
News implies there is little inventory and if there is little inventory then
prizes go up, making poor Daka the victim in all of this.
says state shops buy dollars to pay for imported goods at the official rate of
around 6.3 bolivars per dollar. But private importers often complain official
dollars are not readily available and that they must buy dollars on the black
market at rates about seven times higher
Daka, a private importer could not compete with the state because the state has
abundance of dollars at 6.3 bolivars per dollar, and the poor private importer
did not have state dollars available so they were forced to buy dollars at the
black market at a much higher price, up to seven times more expensive which
added to the fact that products were scarce at state shops it means that Daka is
not only a victim of the evil government, but is being unfairly treated.
his government say economic mismanagement, rather than unscrupulous retailers,
is responsible for inflation
Critics of his government... Some ghost of crappy, unethical journalism without
a name with anonymous contributors. Sure it says basic products are involved in
economic management problems, but it does not deny at all that the Daka problem
is also a problem of economic mismanagement.
So any user of BBC News can conclude:
President Maduro accused the Daka chain of charging
exorbitant prices and seizes it. The opposition blames the
government's economic mismanagement of the economy for the high prizes
of Daka. It is unfair to compare the prizes of the state stores to the
Daka store because there is inflation due to the high demand of the
product and there are few existences of the product on the market at
state prizes. Add to this that the state stores unfaily have a dollar up
to seven times less expensive which is almost not available to Daka,
thus forcing it to raise prices and it is justifiable that it raises
them up to seven times the price of the product in the state store.
Daka is not unscrupulous retailer, it is the government's economic
mismanagement the real responsible for this flagrant abuse to the
private sector and the Daka stores.
That is why recent opinion polls have shown the president's ratings have
declined by about 10% in recent months while opposition leader Henrique
Capriles is going to win next month's vote that is a quasi-referendum on
President Nicolas Maduro.
Daka, victim of evil President Nicolas Maduro, but don't worry, hero Capriles
Radonsky is going to win in next elections and we all have to support him
because Nicolas is an abusive president who's failed economic policies have led
to a severe abuse to the private sector, says BBC News to the British people.
Is that so?
That is a very interesting fictional, baised story BBC News got there...
But what ever happened to the FOUR HUNDRED
MILLION STATE DOLLARS that the Government
of Venezuela granted to the Daka stores over nine years and which were used to
buy ALL THE MERCHANDISE INSIDE THE STORE?
Oops, guess the BBC News forgot about that little detail...

realizadas a Daka detectaron precios exagerados en sus productos
Caracas, 9 de noviembre de 2013.-
Más de 400 millones de dólares
entre el 2004 y el 2012 ha autorizado la Comisión de
Administración de Divisas (Cadivi) a las tiendas Daka para cancelar sus
importaciones de electrodomésticos que distribuyen a través de cinco
establecimientos en cuatro ciudades de Venezuela.
Sin embargo, tras inspecciones realizadas por las autoridades en las
tiendas de esta franquicia fueron detectadas irregularidades en la
determinación de precios exagerados y no acorde a la realidad de la
La empresa inicialmente denominada Daka de Venezuela y ahora Ciberlux de
Venezuela, tramitó 4 mil 96 solicitudes de divisas y recibió
autorizaciones por la cifra de 407 millones 799 mil
379 dólares durante un periodo de 9 años, según lo refleja Cadivi
en sus registros dado a conocer a través de su portal web.
Solo en 2012 se le
autorizaron más de 51 millones de dólares distribuidos en 263
solicitudes. Sobre las cifras de este año no se dispone de información
en la página del organismo de Administración de Divisas.
La comercializadora, registrada en enero de 2004 en el estado Carabobo,
recibió la extraordinaria suma a pesar de que su
capital declarado es de apenas 100 millones de bolívares, según
consta en el Registro Nacional de Contratistas de Venezuela.
En dicho registro, que es requerido para negociar con cualquier
organismo del Estado, Daka aparece como proveedor
de Pdvsa, empresa venezolana de petróleo.
Daka o Ciberlux de Venezuela es propiedad de Manzur Ramadan Daggak
Mujamad (conocido Falles Ramadan) y su hermano FauciMahmoud Daggak
Mujamad; cada uno declara ser propietario de 50% de las acciones y
figuran como presidente y vicepresidente respectivamente.
También forman parte de la directiva de la compañía Nassar y Nacer Dagga
Mujamad, quienes obstentan cargos de administradores.
Además de las tiendas en Caracas, Valencia, Punto Fijo y Barquisimeto,
Daka acaba de abrir en el mes de septiembre un establecimiento de venta
al detal en Panamá.
El pasado viernes el presidente Nicolás Maduro, anunció sanciones contra
la cadena de tiendas Daka una vez se comprobó mediante una inspección la
exorbitante especulación de los precios en los productos de línea blanca
y de tecnología, el delito cometido por los administradores de esta
franquicia se inscribe en las acciones desestabilizadoras contra la
economía venezolana, además de atentar contra el salario del pueblo
El Gobierno venezolano ha venido afrontando una
guerra económica fraguada por actores políticos, empresariales y
externos a la patria, quienes intentan deponer el mando del
presidente electo mediante la desestabilización económica marcada con
acciones como el acaparamiento, escasez, inflación, especulación, usura
y otros procedimientos contrarios a la sana economía. SH.B.
Difunde la Verdad
So EVERYTHING inside the Daka stores was bought with
State Dollars at 6.3 Bolivars per dollar...
Heh, I guess that was not important at all to BBC News... Yes, they did not see
that necessary to explain to the British people...
El Gobierno venezolano ha venido
afrontando una guerra económica fraguada por actores políticos,
empresariales y externos a la patria
It says: The Government of Venezuela has been facing an economic war that is
being waged by political actors, businesses and foreign actors.
Well, BBC News BUSINESS happens to be attacking with
POLITICAL BIAS and it is a Foreign actor.
So it is not the Government that is viciously lying and breaking ethical rules,
as you can see it is BBC News that is attacking Venezuela.
This is just another little example of why it is so important to have an Network
of Academic Media where every country can say their own story with respect and
dignity to the other countries, something that the BBC News obviously
DOES NOT HAVE as it misleads the British people into
hating Venezuela just because it is in the interest of the very business that
offered them ethical journalism and that is obviously a
That is why the voices of world must have their own space to tell their own
stories in a space where there is no rape culture or bully culture. BBC News is
NOT the voice of the world, it is a
GAG of the
That is why we need an Academic Network that works very much like the United
Nations should be:
A space where everyone gets to say their own story without being raped or abused
in their dignity or abusing the space of others.
That is what the United Nations General Assembly is. That is also needed in the
World Academy (UNESCO) with an Academic Media Network where we can all tell our
stories without gags and bias rapes.
Freedom of Speech and Self Determination to the Academies
of the World.
It's so sad the British people have such bad impressions of Venezuela just
because they are being lied to and abused in their trust by an unscrupulous and
unethical media but that is not the responsibility of all the employees of the
BBC News, like I said before, the BBC News has just a few responsible in the
tyranny of unquestionable media.
