Brazilian sale of tear gas angers Venezuela opposition

Venezuela_Crisis_tear gasCARACAS - A Brazilian company acknowledged on Friday that it is supplying Venezuela’s security forces with large amounts of tear gas to control anti-government protests — prompting outrage from the Venezuelan opposition.

Rio de Janeiro-based Condor Non-Lethal Technologies confirmed that it is fulfilling two contracts in Venezuela after opposition leaders presented what they said was a document showing the armed forces had purchased almost 78,000 tear gas canisters in April this year.

Avianca Brazil already indicated that they will not transport this product to Venezuela.
