Mercosur Suspends Venezuela

SAO PAULO -- The foreign ministers of the founding countries of Mercosur today decided unanimously to apply the "democratic clause", which extends the indefinite suspension of Venezuela from the bloc.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Aloysio Nunes reported at a press conference held at the Sao Paulo City Hall that Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, following a meeting of foreign ministers in Sao Paulo, determined a "political suspension, by consensus, a serious political sanction against Venezuela. "

"We are saying: Stop with this! Enough with the deaths, enough with the repression. It is not possible to inflict such torture on the people," Brazilian Foreign Minister Aloysio Nunes said after the meeting.

As the suspension was announced, the constituent assembly removed dissident state prosecutor Luisa Ortega from her job. Asked to comment on Ortega's dismissal, Nunes replied with a Latin proverb: "Whom the gods would destroy they first drive mad."
