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.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
