Ricardo Antela, the legal counsel of private news TV channel Globovisión, affirmed that the break in the obligatory simultaneous broadcast on Thursday during a ministerial council led by President Hugo Chávez, was out of human error by the master operator.

Antela pointed out that its client forwarded a letter to the director of the Venezuelan National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), Pedro Maldonado, and set up a telephone contact to explain that around 4:28 pm, the TV channel representatives noticed that the transmission would stop for about three seconds.

The glitch occurred, according to the attorney, while recording the program "Con todo y Penzini." In the meantime, one of the films of the Harry Potter saga popped up.

Furthermore, he vowed to investigate the event to elucidate whether the operator acted knowingly. Despite a "spontaneous event," he added, it was "gross error."
