Statement of the OAS Secretary General on the detention of Globovision’s president

  March 25, 2010

“The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has already declared itself on the subject of the detention of Globovision’s president, Guilermo Zuloaga, as it is the OAS entity charged with making that type of statement. For my part, I worry about the national and international political repercussions of this situation, and that is why I request the Venezuelan authorities to promptly free Mr. Zuloaga and, should he be tried, that it be done with respect for the presumption of innocence and with all the guarantees offered to him by the law.”
