William Cochez, Panamanian politician, ensures that the President of Venezuela died four days ago.
Contact CNN Chile, former Ambassador of Panama to the OAS, William Cochez, said that since last December 30 Chávez was declared brain dead in Cuba, whereupon he returned to Venezuela in that State. For this reason, ensure that it was not visited by the various Presidents and questioned the last picture that was posted of Chavez with his daughters.
The information that the former diplomat won ensures that they are “internal sources of the Venezuelan Government” and that it is information that circulated weeks ago. “I challenge the Venezuelan Government to deny me, and showing the Chávez and so you will know what I say is true or false” called Cochez to Venezuelans to clarify the situation.
CNN Chile asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, who claimed that this version is not true and contradicts the medical treatment the President of Venezuela is currently performing. They would not make further comment on the matter.
Guillermo Cóchez, meanwhile, said that 4 days ago died Chavez since his daughters asked for disconnection from the ventilator which was connected to survive.
