Chavez demands action against owner of TV channel
Advertisements [?]

CARACAS, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez stepped up his threats against Venezuela's only remaining opposition-aligned television channel on Saturday, calling its owner a fugitive criminal and accusing him of conspiring against his government.

Chavez demanded that authorities including the attorney general and the Supreme Court take action in a pending criminal case against Globovision owner Guillermo Zuloaga, who fled the country earlier this year after a court issued an arrest warrant.

"Something must be done," Chavez said on state television. If Zuloaga does not return to face justice, Chavez said, "something must be done in relation to this channel and the properties this man has here."

Zuloaga, who has been charged with usury and conspiracy, denies wrongdoing and says prosecutors are carrying out a vendetta on Chavez's orders. Zuloaga criticized Chavez at a forum in Washington on Wednesday, denouncing him as a threat to democracy in the region.
