Venezuela charges opposition TV station’s lawyer with obstructing justice
The prosecutor’s office has charged Perla Jaimes, the lawyer who both represents Globovisión owner Guillermo Zuloaga and the opposition station itself, with allegedly obstructing a court order during the raid of the businessman’s house last May, El Carabobeño reports.
Jaimes’ attorney said that the charges are unfounded and the prosecution is simply trying to make her step down as Zuloaga’s legal representative, El Tiempo explains.
