The Venezuelan National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) is preparing an inquest into private news TV channel Globovisión due to the footage leaked from a Harry Potter film during an obligatory simultaneous broadcast featuring President Hugo Chávez on Thursday, November 15.

The request for investigation was made by community media outlets, journalists' collectives and state-run media outlets.

Conatel director Pedro Maldonado noted that in view of the claim, the government agency would undertake "technical and juridical" inquiries to ascertain "the appropriateness of the complaint and any grounds to commence a penalty administrative proceeding due to the break in the transmission."

Maldonado related that on Thursday evening, at the time of the break, he was called by Carlos Zuloaga, the vice-president of the news TV channel. Zuluoga explained that they had no idea of what had caused the incident and promised to make an internal review.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
