Venezuelan opposition leader: Government lies about Chávez's health
"A few days ago, the liars (Government officials) said that they regularly talked to the president. Now they say he cannot talk. They are playing the fool with their own people," opposition state Governor Henrique Capriles Radonski twitted with reference to both Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's health status and post-surgery images released on Friday
Capriles claimed that previous official statements on Chávez's health condition are not consistent with the latest report. "A few days ago, the liars (Government officials) said that they regularly talked to the president. Now they say he cannot talk. They are playing the fool with their own people," the opposition leader twitted from his account.

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.
