The Venezuelan government discovered new hoarding operation by private supermarket chains.

The Venezuelan government has revealed further evidence of hoarding, speculation, and overpricing by private companies as part of an “economic war” against the socialist and democratically-elected government. 

In the latest discovery, Venezuelan officials uncovered a massive hoarding operation by the supermarket chain Practimercados Dia a Dia and Carnica 2005, prompting the detention of their board members.

Maduro announced on Monday that Carnica 2005 will now be integrated within state-owned food network PDVAL. The future of Practimercados Día a Día has not been disclosed. 

Economic Development Coordinator Ernesto Villegas revealed various photos taken from the scene via his official Twitter account, which show extensive evidence of hoarding in a warehouse belonging to Practimercados Día a Día.
