A third member of the previous Wuxi China Expatdom regime, has been captured by in Venezuela by Venezuelan rebel forces allied with the current WCE government. Bass Bassimov, who had been masquerading as a second-hand comic shop owner, was found by the rebels of the Hugo Chavez regime in Caracas. Chavez and the former King of Wuxi had been the best of friends. It was Culture Minister Bassimov who provided the Ayatollah of Mordor with a constant supply of grade "b" science fiction and horror films. The Ayatollah of Mordor and Hugo Chavez had frequent "summits" where they forced many innocent people to sit through the films at so-called "arts and film" festivals in both the WCE and Venezuela.
The announcement of the capture was made by WCE Police Commissioner Blakelock from Canada’s Hans Island where he is supervising the preparations for the trial of former members of the Ayatollah of Mordor’s regime. Said Blakelock, "You can have no doubt as to satisfaction that the capture of the notorious former Culture Minister of the Wuxi China Expatdom has given me and the many victims of the Ayatollah’s crimes against good taste. Currently, Bassimov is on a Wuxi China Expatdom Royal Navy ship which is on its way to Hans Island. We are forever grateful to the rebels for assisting us in the capture of Bassimov. We understand, of course, that the Chavez regime has talked of violations of its sovereignty. But, Chavez never respected the sovereignty of the Wuxi Expats that he tied to cinema seats to watch Zorgon Quest #3: the apprenticeship of Chocolate Toffee. For this he was tried by an international court of justice!"
