London 18.03.05 | El Universal reports today that Jessy Chacon, Venezuela's Minister of Interior, will prosecute journalist Patricia Poleo for having published a photograph taken on November 27 1992 in which, then coupster Chacon, purportedly led a group of military men to raid the state channel (Venezolana de Television). In said action a number of unarmed security guards were massacred. Poleo claims that the intention of the Interior Minister is to silence denunciations in that respect.

Poleo allegedly would have identified Chacon as the soldier in the picture [above] published by daily El Nuevo Pais.
