"It may not be possible (...) it is going to be quite difficult" to embalm President Hugo Chávez's body "because the decision should have been made long before," Venezuela's acting President Nicolás Maduro warned on Wednesday, based on experts' opinion. 

A week earlier, Maduro himself announced that the body of the late president would be embalmed and exhibited at the Military Museum just like that of founder of the Soviet Union Vladimir Lenin or that of China's revolution leader Mao Tse-Tung.

Referring to his major challenger in the presidential election to be held next April 14, Henrique Capriles Radonski, Maduro warned about "plans produced by the ultra-right wing" and connected to former US Ambassador to the Organization of American States Roger Noriega to assassinate the opposition leader. He added that specific instructions have been given to the intelligence service to protect the opposition leader.

The behind-the-scenes of the events of April 11, 2002

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
