Case in point: Teodoro Rafael Darnott, purported leader of Hezbollah Venezuela. I posted an article about Hezbollah Venezuela written by Gustavo Coronel, in September 2006. Around that time, Salas was meant to be in Venezuela, and got to meet Teodoro Rafael Darnott. But what interested me about this particular individual was the date of birth, published by Salas in the book. So I got to do a bit of research, on Venezuela's electoral roll. Below my findings:
DOB: 11/12/1946 (allowed to vote).
DOB: 18/04/1955 (as noted in Salas' book, not allowed to vote).
So the question is: how many such flaws could there be in an electoral roll that has not been properly audited by independent parties? Mind, if an individual can have two entries in the roll with the same name, who can guarantee that electoral results in Venezuela are free and fair?
