Putin wishes Hugo Chávez a speedy recovery from his illness
Vladimir Putin wished strength and resistance to President Hugo Chávez to overcome his illness and "take the helm again"
Putin wished strength and resistance to the ailing Venezuelan president to overcome his illness and "take the helm again," so that under his command the Bolivarian Republic "may continue on the path towards development," said the Kremlin in a statement released by news agency Interfax.
Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro reported from Havana that the health of the Bolivarian leader "remains delicate" following further "complications" arising after the operation that Chávez underwent on December 11 due to the recurrence of cancer, informed EFE.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
