Venezuela is facing media dictatorship

"We are faced with the media dictatorship, precisely, to preserve and respect freedom of expression, freedom of association and the strength of a democracy such as the Venezuelan one". Thus was assured this Thursday by Roy Chaderton, Permanent Representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the OAS, through an interview with Telesur. 
In his view, the Venezuelan counter-revolutionaries, what they do is noise. "That is something of that are well aware the sponsors of these officials and institutions and agencies such as the Organization of American States (OAS). It is not binding, but can be used as an excuse to intervene in the internal affairs of another country, even as it has happened in the past to invade countries and then, with the action of the OAS, to validate violations of human rights and international law, as is the case", said the Ambassador.

He stressed that the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) is managed by "some bureaucrats mafia negotiating human rights strictly for political purposes, therefore, they have no legitimacy to rule on these matters".

He also said that whenever it is close an electoral process in Venezuela, it begins to burst "artificial scandals or defamation efforts to try to affect the election's result."

"The reality is that, despite all this, we have remained at a 60 percent of support to the Bolivarian process". And who knows, were it not for these slurs and those nasty campaigns inspired by them, yet it would be greater the difference between a government committed to democracy and social justice, and an opposition that represents the most selfish past of our history", concluded the Ambassador.
