The private Venezuelan television station Globovision, now assumes a new administrative process against them by the Venezuelan government for alleged television emissions of a prison crisis.
According to Pedro Maldonado, president of the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), said “Globovisión could be subject to a fine of 10% of its gross income obtained in the previous fiscal year or the suspension of the transmission up to 72 hours” due to its constant criticism to the government of Hugo Chávez.
The president of Globovision, Maria Fernanda Flores, said that the station met “his duty” and claimed that they never had access to government sources to balance the coverage, as requested by the government. “What is the balance they are asking us to have if they are unbalanced? We seek them and they always refuse us,” she said. (BG)
