Argentinean President: Photo of Chávez is a dirty trick
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick"
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick," twitted on Thursday the Argentinean president on her account @CFKArgentina.
El País took out on Thursday of its website a photo that made its front page, presumably the exclusive image of President Chávez, featuring also in the first printed edition, a copy of which was received by Kirchner, AFP cited.
"Nasty press. I cannot think of any other term. It is the same everywhere," Kirchner lamented in another twit as part of a number of criticisms on Thursday against the media, including British The Sun and Argentinean El Clarín, in support of Chávez's government.
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.
