For what I read, in Venezuela there is no law against bitcoin mining. The government accuses them of cyber crimes?

Cyber crime encompasses any criminal act dealing with computers and networks (called hacking). Additionally, cyber crime also includes traditional crimes conducted through the Internet. For example; hate crimes, telemarketing and Internet fraud, identity theft, and credit card account thefts are considered to be cyber crimes when the illegal activities are committed through the use of a computer and the Internet.


Why are they being charged with cyber crimes? Frankly, this seems an argument to arrest the miners

And then accused of stealing electricity? If the miners paid electricity. it would not be a problem to show the Venezuelan authorities the electricity bill.

This is not the first time that Venezuelan authorities have arrested Bitcoin miners, of course. Two years ago, two other individuals were arrested by the country’s secret police, only to be released more than three months later.

there is no law against Bitcoin mining in Venezuelan, actions like these can have a chilling effect as Bitcoin miners and users become wary of potential government reprisals.
That's why the government learned from its mistakes and they charged them with cyber crime and electricity theft so they could pass more time in jail...

Electricity is almost free in Venezuela because it's paid by the state.

Miners turned socialism onto itself.

with raging inflation,lack of goods and food and coup attempts,Venezuela adopted bitcoin as their secondary currency (unofficially) so the goverment is trying
to prevent another orange revolution or "arabic spring" happen in their country

Resisting the NWO?  The same philosophies that the so-called NWO want, Venezuela has implemented:  an all powerful, totalitarian government, law that is flexible for some, staffed by cronies who are willing to sell their people down the river to line their own pockets with money and power.  

Venezuela is a look at what awaits the world if the people who want "free stuff" at any cost win out over the people who want freedom.  If you want worthless a currency, no freedom, a despot who can arrest you for practically any reason, people dying in hospitals for lack of antibiotics, little food, chaos and violence, then Venezuela is showing the way to get there in a decade or two or less for countries that can't rely on oil money to help them for the first 10-15 years.
