    Absolutely not.

    And I'm not particularly against the joos either. It's just a term of endearment.

    Oh, I see.

    Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has "withdrawn" his application for a UK visa, the BBC understands.

    A source close to the Russian tycoon said
    his application to extend his investor visa had not been refused or denied, as reported in the press.


    Mr Abramovich, 51, has put plans to
    build the club a new stadium on hold amid the delay to renew his visa, which expired some weeks ago.


    Israel has said the
    billionaire is eligible for an Israeli visa.

    The delay in renewing Mr Abramovich's investor visa came to light at a time of increased diplomatic tensions between London and Moscow, in the wake of the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.

    Reports suggest it expired three weeks ago.

    Changes to the visa process, which came into force in 2015, mean
    applicants may be required to prove the origins of their wealth.

    *sigh*


    Pretty obvious from that - he wasn't granted the visa so he had a hissy fit.

    If he'd not wanted the visa he wouldn't have applied for it.

    However I know you hate to be proven wrong so I'll just leave it there.

    Pretty obvious if you completely ignore that a crook like him would definitely have been the target of a UWO.

    I'm more than willing to be proven wrong, but you ignoring facts is not that.

    It comes to some as a surprise that the country is not flourishing under the numerous sanctions, blockades and hindrances, not mentioning stealing their reserves...

    In contrast to some other countries, e.g. Ukraine, where so much money has been pumped in (and subsequently also a lot of sucked off again), however, millions of the population are leaving the country anyway...

    It appears that the fake Venezuelan ameristani puppet has a fake Venezuelan Central Bank as well.

    What "paper work" is required to open such an institution? Any links 'arry?

    Venezuelan prosecutor issues arrest warrants for opposition's ad hoc central bank board


    " Venezuela’s chief prosecutor on Friday announced arrest warrants for members of the central bank’s ad hoc board of directors, appointed by opposition leader Juan Guaido, for several crimes, including treason. The announcement from Chief Prosecutor Tarek Saab came a day after a London court recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president, as part of a legal dispute over whether Guaido or President Nicolas Maduro should control $1 billion of the country’s gold stored in London.

    Saab said the orders of apprehension were requested for the crimes of treason, usurpation of functions and association to commit crimes. He added that all those involved lived outside the country, and did not rule out international actions to carry out the arrests.

    Apart from Ricardo Villasmil, president of the ad hoc board, the prosecutor also included Guaido’s representative in London, Vanessa Neumann, as well as three other collaborators of the opposition leader.
    Saab alleged that Guaido and his collaborators seek to “strip” Venezuela of its wealth in the legal battle over Venezuela’s gold reserves. The opposition, meanwhile, says Maduro wants gold to pay his allies.

    Over the past two years, Maduro’s government has removed some 30 tonnes of gold from its reserves in Venezuela to sell abroad for much-needed hard currency.
    A member of Guaido’s legal team said they now expect the court to determine whether Guaido has the authority to represent Venezuela’s central bank in another legal case to decide control over the gold itself.

    Guaido, the National Assembly speaker who was recognized as Venezuela’s legitimate president by dozens of Western countries after invoking the constitution to assume the role in January 2019, has not succeeded in ousting Maduro, accused of rigging his 2018 re-election.

    Maduro, who has overseen an economic collapse in the once-prosperous OPEC nation and is accused of corruption and human rights violations, calls Guaido a U.S. puppet. "

    "calls Guaido a U.S. puppet."

    I wonder where the Venezuelan President gets that idea from?

    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.
