Santos gets ready to attend Chávez's inauguration
The Colombian president held a telephone conversation with Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro on the eve of Christmas
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is prepared to attend the inauguration of this Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez and wished him getting well soon one more time.
The Venezuelan leader is recovering from a surgery to counter his cancer, Colombian media cited on Tuesday.
No date of arrival was specified.
As stated by Caracol Radio and quoted by DPA, Santos spoke on the phone with Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro to confirm that he and his Foreign Minister María Ángela Holguín plan to attend the sworn-in ceremony. According to the news, the event could be postponed because of Chávez's health condition.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
