Uribe government accused of plotting against Chávez


Promoting the independence of Zulia state, northwest Venezuela, is one of the purposes outlined in an alleged plan to oust Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez -a plot former Attorney General Isaías Rodríguez has reported repeatedly.

In a document entitled Shock and Awe (Provoking Shock to Get Respect) -which Rodríguez filed last week with the Attorney General Office-, it is stated that both the US and Colombian authorities, including Colombian President Álvaro Uribe, have held meetings to support Zulia state's secession from Venezuela.

Rodríguez filed the document in an attempt at showing that recent reports claiming that the investigation -conducted while he was the Attorney General- into the murder in 2004 of public prosecutor Danilo Anderson is plagued with defects are part of a plot.

In the file, which the former Attorney General attributed to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Zulia state governor Manuel Rosales is said to support the plan. Further, the document explains that even though the plan may fail the purpose is to deviate the Venezuelan government's attention from other subjects matters.
