Ecuadorian President would act with iron fist in any case similar to RCTV

El Universal, July 11, 2007

"There is the need to tell all the truth" in the case of private TV channel Radio Caracas Televisión (RCTV), said Wednesday in Madrid Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.

The ruler maintained that in the face of a similar occurrence in his country, he would have cancelled the broadcasting license immediately.

"Let us tell all the truth. RCTV was the channel that backed, prompted and disseminated the coup attempt in Venezuela. If a channel were to act likewise in Ecuador, I would not wait for the broadcasting license to expire, but make it null and void right away," said Correa at the Hispanic American Tribune sponsored by the House of the Americas in Madrid and Efe news agency.

"If I were the president of Venezuela, I would take the frequency out of them. In Ecuador, this is a ground to remove frequency from any channel endangering democracy," Correa said and noted that President Hugo Chávez waited for the broadcasting license to expire.
