"Venezuela's Supreme Court announced Monday that it has rejected a U.S. request for the extradition of a Venezuelan citizen who has been accused of sexually abusing several minors in the United States. Former swim team coach Simon Daniel Chocron cannot be sent to the United States because Venezuela's Constitution and laws strictly prohibit the extradition of its citizens, the court said. It said Chocron would face justice in Venezuela." (08/08/11)
