Globovisión: Break in transmission was a human error
The legal counsel of the private news TV channel attributed the occurrence on Thursday to a "spontaneous event" that will be investigated
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."

No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
