President Chávez continues in stable condition
"The treatment is being applied on an ongoing and strict basis and the patient is assimilating it," said Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas, who said the Venezuelan president is receiving treatment for a "lung infection that occurred in the post-operative stage"
Villegas insisted that after the operation for cancer performed on December 11, the Bolivarian Government has mantained ongoing contact with the medical staff treating Chávez and his relatives accompanying him in his post-operative phase in Havana, Cuba.
"The treatment is being applied on an ongoing and strict basis and the patient is assimilating it," said Villegas. He insisted that the Government remains "committed to keeping people informed about the health of Venezuelan president."
When we look at the issue of human rights in Venezuela and the relevant reports submitted each year, a clear pattern emerges, namely, the impunity following the violation of rights such as freedom of expression, political rights, and the right to life and personal integrity, which has Venezuela consistently ranking among the lowest scorers in assessment indices.
