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.
Three Venezuelans and five Trinidadians will stand trial on January 26 under the suspicion of being involved in alleged Muslim terrorist activities in Venezuela. After nine months in prison, the defendants will appear in court to face charges of terrorism brought against them by the Attorney General Office.
