Senior official: Chávez will undergo a new treatment upon lab results
In an interview held on TV, Venezuela's Communication and Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said that the Spanish newspaper El País has been for long conducting a systematic campaign against President Hugo Chávez. "El País' style manual has been thrown to the trash can," the minister admonished
The minister stated that the head of state's health condition is "favorable," yet "we do not want to jump into false speculations concerning the president's return."
Referring to the recent scandal arising from a fake image of President Hugo Chávez released by Spanish newspaper El País, Villegas underscored that the Spanish journal has been engaged for long in a systematic campaign against the Venezuelan president, and added that El País' "style manual has been thrown to the trash can."

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.
