Chavez Says US Preparing Arrest Warrant

Tuesday, 25 May 2010 09:02 AM

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said the U.S. government could be preparing an arrest warrant against him and some of his collaborators in a money-laundering case being processed at a federal court in Miami.

Citing the name of the federal judge overseeing the process, Joan Lenard, and other facts about the case, Chavez warned at a cabinet meeting Thursday night that it shouldn't surprise anyone if she issues a warrant for his arrest.

"Don't be surprised if it's released tomorrow that Chavez is the one laundering money and, therefore, Judge Lenard is ordering his arrest," he said, adding that warrants may also be issued to arrest vice president Elias Jaua and the minister of Planning and Finance, Jorge Giordiani.
