PanARMENIAN.Net - The former Ambassador of Panama to the Organization of American States (OAS), Guillermo Cochez, said Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez suffered brain death and who had died four days ago, guardianlv.com reported.
According to statements given to international news channel NTN24, “the president suffered brain death since Dec 31 and have been disconnected from the machines that kept him alive for four days.”
On whether Venezuela is prepared the worst news, the journalist said: “Not at all, people who can read the political news can be but most people do not, hence the opposition goes on to say that everything is a braid, the people Chavez want to be told what happened to his Commander President, some say he has died, I have learned that on Dec 30 was the first death, brain death.”
He requested through his Twitter account the Venezuelan government to file a proof that Chavez is kept alive. “They’ve been cheating on Venezuela and the world,” he wrote.
“The infighting in Venezuela, the Cuban government pressure are situations that have not allowed the news of his death be released,” said the reporter.
“Chavez was taken to Venezuela because the Cubans did not want to give the disconnect there and have kept him from returning to Venezuela in that state. Would not have been able to teach Evo Morales and Ollanta Humala or Cristina Fernández” he explained.
After the diplomatic Cochez questioned Venezuela’s decision to postpone the oath of President Hugo Chavez to be receiving medical treatment in Cuba, Panama’s government decided to dismiss him.
CNN Chile consulted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, who claimed that this version is not true and it contradicts the medical treatment that is currently performing the President of Venezuela. They refused further comment.
Guillermo Cochez, meanwhile, said Chavez died four days ago and asked her daughters to disconnect the ventilator which was connected to survive.
“Our commander is undergoing additional treatment, as we have reported, these treatments are highly complex and tough,” Maduro said in a ceremony broadcast on state television after reporting that he had just returned from Cuba.
Chavez was first diagnosed with cancer in June 2011.
