JUDICIARY . According to former Supreme Tribunal judge and former military prosecutor Eladio Aponte Aponte, his situation boils down to “the paradox of the persecuted persecutor.” “Knowing the system from inside, and how it works and how it’s handled… I don’t think I’d have any rights at all -not in my case at least.” He said he had received calls “from the President (of Venezuela) downwards” to tamper with the justice system.
