Breaking News: Colombia requests application of Democratic Chart to Venezuela

Colombian Senate's Communiqué

In a communiqué leaked to the press allegedly the Colombian Senate has requested the OAS, American countries and the international community in general to apply the OAS’ Democratic Chart to the government of Hugo Chavez for what they consider as a continuous violation of Venezuela’s constitution and for blocking the democratic attempts of the opposition to hold a recall referendum on his mandate.

The communiqué also asks the international community for total support in these dire moments for democracy in Venezuela.
