On February 5th, 2009, Venezuelan blogger Alexis Marrero, blogging at “Alexis Marrero in Politics”, was detained by police while putting up some posters asking people to vote NO on the constitutional referendum that would eliminate term limits on Chavez. Marrero was released the same day, but was summoned to appear in court the next day.

According to Information Policy Blog,  Alexis Marrero was informed that an arrest warrant had been issued against him on July 30th. He was summoned early this year to the special prosecutor’s office and was informed that an investigation was being launched against him for allegedly inciting or instigating to assassinate an important political figure, war propaganda, and contempt against the figure of the President. The accusations are based on a post on his blog entitled “Stop the Misery Death to the Traitor, Death to Hugo Chavez”.
