Reuters reported exclusively that Venezuelan law enforcement officers arrested an oil workers’ union leader last fall in part due to concerns his tweets about fuel shortages would “generate commotion and panic.” Prosecutors have charged Eudis Girot, an executive director of the OPEC nation’s FUTPV union, with crimes including terrorism, release of confidential information, instigation of others to commit a crime and illicit possession of a firearm.
