Venezuela’s ambassador to the UN has alleged that a well-known opposition journalist has been working as a ‘local agent’ for the UK and US since the 1980s.
In a series of tweets, Samuel Moncada posted links to a number of documents appearing to support the claim – which the journalist himself has dismissed as sensationalist.
The man in question, Nelson Bocaranda, is a highly regarded TV host and political commentator.
During his career, he’s broken a number of major stories in the country, including regarding the health of its former leader Hugo Chavez.
