Guillermo Zuloaga: 'I'm not scared of Chavez'


The Venezuelan authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the owner of a private television channel fiercely critical of President Hugo Chavez.

Prosecutors accuse Guillermo Zuloaga, who owns the Globovision channel, of business irregularities.

Mr Zuloaga's supporters say the warrant is an effort to silence him. The government says all due legal procedures have been followed.

Opposition groups accuse Mr Chavez of trying to control the media.

In what may have been his last interview before going into hiding, Mr. Zuloaga spoke to Stephen Sackur.

Watch the full interview with Guillermo Zuloaga on HARDtalk on Monday 14th June 2010. The programme also includes an exclusive interview with President Hugo Chavez.
