Appeal of President Chávez’s unconstitutional acts introduced at Supreme Court

By Sol Maria Castro,

Attorney Hermann Escarrá filed an appeal asking the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice, TSJ, to declare President Hugo Chávez's political conduct in Guyana last week unconstitutional. Escarrá said that with Chávez's announcement that his government will not place obstacles to Guyana's developing the historically disputed border Essequibo region, Venezuela has ignored the Geneva Accord and the good offices of the Secretary General of the Organization of American States. Arguing that this places Venezuela "in a situation of loss”, Escarrá requested the Constitutional Chamber to correct and annul the effect of Chávez's "regrettable (and) shameful statements."
