Venezuela healthcare scandal

Early 2017, Gutman reported about the failing healthcare system in Venezuela. He started by saying that hospitals had little or no antibiotics, surgical gowns and other medical equipment, and to make matters worse, many hospitals were running out of food and water and running out of linens. “The country is so broke that even its hospitals have stopped working – that’s why we had this late night meeting with a local resident who couldn’t take it anymore,” the article continued.

He then wrote about their government’s corruption, pointing out a sad scenario that happened when he and his team visited the pediatric unit, finding a four-year-old boy with a swollen abdomen. As reported, the boy, named Jonaical, had been waiting for his test results for over two months and his mother, alongside other mothers in the unit, had to support their children on her own. However, Gutman said things weren’t always that way – apparently the country’s healthcare system was once able to provide free healthcare.

The questioning

After recording footage and photos from a Venezuelan hospital, Gutman was arrested by armed guards who took away his camera and phone. He was then questioned by investigators – they had access to his GoPro, but he wouldn’t allow them access to his phone.
