 Chavez: No One Is Above The Law

Caracas, Sep 23 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez declared that "no one is above the law," making a clear reference to landowners who ignored the application of the Land Law.

"I am willing to reach an understanding; we will not trample people's rights but landowners must produce their titles," Chavez pointed out.

The Venezuelan president said there were many unproductive lands in his country, while the government had to import millions of quarts of milk and tons of beef.

"We must consolidate and buttress growth more consistently, so I am urging people to fight bureaucracy and corruption in order that resources can be used to contribute to the dynamics of development," said the Venezuelan leader.

Chavez made his remarks at the ceremony to create the National Development FundĀ“s board of directors that will receive the monthly surplus of gas and oil exports from the State-run PDVSA oil corporation.

The National Development Fund will then finance projects for productive investment, education, health and improving management of the foreign debt, among other tasks.

The leader of the Bolivarian revolution called upon Venezuelans to join the construction of a new nation. "We have differences but we work them out," he concluded.
