THE REAL PURPOSE OF THE VENEZUELA’S CARNET DE LA PATRIA ID CARD?

Kenneth Rijock in his blog on 5th January says that compliance officers should not accept use of this card as supplementary proof of identity.  He says that the card is actually a smart card issued by Chinese tech giant ZTE and assists the Venezuelan government in tracking the holder’s social, political and economic behaviour, and is patterned after a similar card that China uses to completely control and monitor its citizens.  It is used to receive subsidised food, social and other government benefits and contains information regarding the holder’s political affiliation, voting history, and detailed personal data.  He says that the true purpose of the Carnet is to replace the Cédula, the national ID card, with a document that allows the regime to monitor every aspect of the holder’s life.
