Globovisión: Break in transmission was a human error
The legal counsel of the private news TV channel attributed the occurrence on Thursday to a "spontaneous event" that will be investigated
Antela pointed out that its client forwarded a letter to the director of the Venezuelan National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), Pedro Maldonado, and set up a telephone contact to explain that around 4:28 pm, the TV channel representatives noticed that the transmission would stop for about three seconds.
The glitch occurred, according to the attorney, while recording the program "Con todo y Penzini." In the meantime, one of the films of the Harry Potter saga popped up.
Furthermore, he vowed to investigate the event to elucidate whether the operator acted knowingly. Despite a "spontaneous event," he added, it was "gross error."

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
