Nicolás Maduro to meet with owners of major private TV networks
President Nicolás Maduro said the meeting is intended to address the "anti-values of capitalism" which, he said, are one of the reasons behind high crime rates in Venezuela
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the "anti-values of capitalism" that are broadcast by the media. According to Maduro, this is one of the causes of high crime rates in Venezuela. "You have to change. Venevisión, Televen, and all television networks in this country need to change. I will suggest them to make other type of television," said Maduro.
He said that Camero and Cisneros confirmed their attendance to the meeting.
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.
