Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos and Team Detained in Venezuela During Maduro Interview

Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos and Team Detained in Venezuela During Maduro Interview

Veteran news anchor Jorge Ramos said that Maduro didn't like being asked about "the lack of democracy, about the torture of political prisoners, about the humanitarian crisis" during a 7 p.m. interview at his palace in Caracas.

It added that the crew's technical equipment was confiscated.

Coronell tweeted that he had spokmen with Ramos, who told him that he and his team had been freed.

The network contacted the U.S. State Department.

Though Univision's USA news president Daniel Coronell tweeted the crew had been released and we're going back to their hotel, no phone contact has been made with the crew. "What I told Nicolas Maduro is that millions of Venezuelans and many governments around the world don't consider him a legitimate president but a dictator". When they finally did have a chance to chat with Maduro, he apparently "didn't like" their questions.

They said the Metropole Hotel would be a backup location for the summit and Kim could possibly stay in the Melia hotel. It could take Kim at least two and a half days to travel thousands of kilometres through China by train to Vietnam.

The U.S. and other nations have demanded Maduro step down and have recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader. But "in the middle of the call, they took his phone away".

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere Kimberly Breier said, "News of their detention & confiscation of their equipment by Maduro's henchmen are the latest reminder that press freedom in #Venezuela applies only to those who are willing to spread the regime's lies".

"They interrogated us. They put us in a security room".

Ramos called the episode a "violation" and said Maduro's aides still had the tapes: "They have stolen our work and are trying to keep what is happening from airing", he said.

After Juan Guaidó called for a minute's silence for the five people who lost their lives in the aid initiative, Pence told the worldwide press and presidents from across Latin America that it was "unconscionable that Maduro blocked hundreds of tonnes of aid from getting to his impoverished people", and repeatedly denounced that the dictator "danced while trucks full of aid and medicine burned".
