VP Maduro: Chávez post-operative stage to be "complex, tough"
The operation performed on President Hugo Chávez on Tuesday was "complex, difficult, delicate"
"We assessed the operation and would like to tell Venezuelans that the operation Tuesday was actually a complex, difficult, delicate operation, which means that the post-operative stage will be also a complex and tough process," he said, in company with Minister of Energy and Petroleum Rafael Ramírez and Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello.
The top officer explained that both Ramírez and Cabello came back early on Wednesday (3:00 a.m.) from Havana and they talked "until dawn was breaking" about the surgery.
Maduro is certain that "the objectiveness that should make us deal with this situation" is a characteristic feature in the contacts between the Executive Office and the president's treating doctors.
No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
