A television station owner that took a stance against the Venezuelan government was arrested on Thursday.
The owner of Globovision, Guillermo Zuloaga, was charged with making “offensive” comments against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, according to Attorney General Luisa Ortega, reported the Associated Press.
Zuloaga was released later, but is ordered not to leave the country. Globovision is the only channel that has voiced opposition against Chavez after RCTV, another channel that voiced an opposing opinion against the president, was forced to go offline back in 2007.
Venezuelan officials detained Zuloaga at an airport as he was apparently leaving to go on vacation. When he was released, he said “I'm staying here,” calling accusations against him “ridiculous,” according to the AP report.
