Hugo Chavez's Prisoners

For decades, Venezuela opened its doors to Latin American exiles, including people fleeing the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile. Today, Venezuela is producing political prisoners rather than saving them. Venezuelan independent daily Tal Cual reports that under Hugo Chávez’s administration, the number of political prisoners has soared; opposition leaders are being publicly named "military targets of the Revolution"; and lists of political opponents are in circulation. Sounds like something for Sean Penn to investigate.
