While continuing to film with her phone, the woman says the Venezuelan government steals money from its citizens.

The ambassador, César Méndez Gonzalez, tries to take the camera from her – but fails.

A Migros staff member later steps in to protect the couple.

The Venezuelan embassy in Bern is refusing to comment.
