Ricardo Antela, the legal counsel of private news TV channel Globovisión, affirmed that the break in the obligatory simultaneous broadcast on Thursday during a ministerial council led by President Hugo Chávez, was out of human error by the master operator.

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."

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
