Both the attorney and wife of former commissioner Iván Simonovis, José Luis Tamayo and María del Pilar Pertinez de Simonovis, claimed that doctors sent by the Bolivarian Intelligence Service (Sebin) have prevented the testing needed for the inspector of former Judicial Technical Police (PTJ, nowadays Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency, Cicpc).

Tamayo lamented that as soon as ex-police chief Iván Simonovis was admitted to hospital, some irregularities arose concerning testing.

"A Sebin doctor, apparently appointed as ordered by the Sebin director instead of the First Execution Court in Aragua state, has dedicated to systematically torpedo Simonovis' examination," the lawyer pointed out.

Interestingly, the Sebin doctor "hampers precisely the tests that are the result of the findings" of the disease suffered by the former security secretary at Caracas Mayoralty.

"For instance, his treating doctor found a problem in a kidney that required an additional test; the Sebin doctor arbitrarily opposes it, by arguing that the court did not order such study."

Commissioner Simonovis was admitted to hospital last Monday to complete pending tests since September 2011. By that time, the tests found severe osteoporosis, five hernias, two broken disks on his spinal cord and carpal tunnel syndrome.

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.
