Venezuela's government seizes electronic goods shops

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 "fair prices".

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 merchandise.

"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 week.

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 paper.

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 Maduro's popularity.

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.

So...

"fair prices" huh?

Must be that:

the opposition blames government mismanagement of the economy for high inflation

So, the product was really expensive in Daka, says the opposition because of the government mismanagement.

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.

BBC Caracas 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.

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

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.

critics of 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.

Poor, poor 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...

Daka recibió autorizaciones por más de 407 millones de dólares durante 9 años según refleja Cadivi

Solo en 2012 se le autorizaron más de 51 millones de dólares distribuidos en 263 solicitudes / Inspecciones 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 economía.

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 venezolano.

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 FRAUD.

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 world:
 

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.
