Published in Saudi Press Agency on 26 - 03 - 2010

Guillermo Zuloaga, owner and president of the
Globovision television channel, was conditionally released again
after he was arrested late Thursday for allegedly insulting Presidnet
Hugo Chavez, according to dpa,
He was detained at the airport in northern Venezuela and was
brought to the capital Caracas for questioning.
Zuloaga was ordered released by a court but on condition that he
could not leave the country after prosecutors had said he would be
charged with insulting Chavez and with distribution of false
Attorney General Luisa Ortega Diaz said Zuloaga he faced up to 15
months in jail for the first charge and 3-5 years in prison for the
Zuloaga called his detention an "arbitrary act" and said he was
not trying to flee the country but instead was travelling to Bonaire,
in the Netherlands Antilles, for Easter.
"I have not received any notification that I have any problems,
except what has been on the news, that there is supposedly an
investigation of my comments at the (meeting,)" Zuloaga said of the
media gathering.
"(Zuloaga) can stay calm ... because we act in accordance with the
law," Ortega Diaz said. "We act with regard for human rights."
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington
expressed deep concern over Zuloaga's arrest, which it said
"evidences the lack of independence of the judiciary and the
utilization of the criminal justice system to punish criticism,
producing an intimidating effect that extends to all of society."
