Attorney General's Office to charge Patricia Poleo with illegal use of information

Public prosecutor Alejandro Castillo will charge journalist Patricia Poleo with having committed the alleged crime of illegal use of classified information and documents in connection with the assassination of national prosecutor Danilo Anderson, according to a press release issued on Monday by the Attorney General's Office.

The document states that these crimes are provided for in articles 66 and 78 of the Law Against Corruption, and that the decision to charge Poleo would have been taken as a consequence of the probe launched into her and a group of police officers.

In the wake of the authorized raid on her residence on January 28, the Attorney General's Office found classified documents and information that the journalist illegally used when publishing them in "El Nuevo País" newspaper and when making them public in Radio Caracas Televisión TV channel on December 6 and 8.
