Top court lifts attachment against news TV channel Globovisión
The Political Administrative Court again requested the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) to calculate the interest owed by Globovisión, as the fine should have been paid in January
The Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) nullified an attachment for USD 5.5 million it meted out to news TV channel Globovisión last week due to the network's refusal to pay a fine for USD 2 million, imposed in October 2011 by the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) in connection with the coverage of a riot at El Rodeo jail, in Miranda state.
The attachment was rendered null and void by the Political Administrative Court, TSJ, once Globovisión last Friday paid, with two checks, the USD 2 million fine, pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 2, Article 522, Code of Civil Procedure.
However, the top court again requested the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) to calculate the default interest owed by Globovisión, as the fine had to be paid in January.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
