The Venezuelan National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) gets ready to investigate the US series "Legends," aired on TNT.

"Because of lies and manipulation against President Nicolás Maduro in the series ‘Legends,' we request Conatel to commence an in-depth investigation,"
Minister of Communication and Information Delcy Rodríguez twitted.

In the third episode of the fiction series, a terrorist blames President Maduro for the purchase of a chemical weapon to be used against demonstrators who have staged protests throughout the country since last February.

The scene features a terrorist interrogated by a FBI agent who queries: "For whom are you buying it?" (A chemical weapon called XV). The detainee replies: "I don't know; there is an attorney." Asked about the identity of that person, the suspect responds: "Maduro. PSUV. They are concerned about civil unrest in Venezuela."

Conatel Director General William Castillo reported on his Twitter account that an investigation would be undertaken in this regard.
