Globovisión's main shareholder said to have violated Law on Banks
A legal action was filed Monday with the Attorney General Office
Aranguren underscored, "We have come before Attorney General Office Luisa Ortega Díaz to request an investigation to determine how Raúl Gorrín, the owner of a financial institution, has bought a media outlet in our country, thus violating Section 12, paragraph 8 of the Law on Banks and Other Financial Institutions."
The attorney stated that the sale of Globovisión to Raúl Gorrín "is void."
"Attorney Ortega Díaz must explain Venezuelans how Conatel (The National Telecommunications Commission) approved the sale and how this law came to be disregarded," he stressed.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
