Tweeter arrested for saying Hugo Chavez is staying in Cuba
TO Venezuela, where the men of Sebin (Bolivarian National Intelligence Service) have arrested Federico Medina Ravell:
Venezuelan intelligence officers have raided the home of a Twitter user suspected of spreading destabilising rumours about the health of Hugo Chávez ahead of an inauguration that the ailing president looks increasingly unlikely to attend.
Medina, who was not at home, is accused of instigating terrorism through social networking sites. He is said to be behind the @LucioQuincioC Twitter account, which has claimed that Chávez will not return from Havana.
Wonder what Ken Livingstone thinks about that?
