Venezuela court orders TV channel assets seizure

Venezuela court orders TV channel assets seizure

A lawyer for a Venezuelan TV channel that takes a critical line against President Hugo Chavez says the country's Supreme Court has ordered the seizure of about $5.7 million in the station's assets.
The channel Globovision had been trying to challenge a $2 million fine imposed by regulators for its coverage of a prison uprising last year.
Ricardo Antela, a lawyer for the news channel, says the Supreme Court notified the channel on Thursday of the embargo on its assets totaling nearly three times the original fine.
The Supreme Court did not immediately comment on the matter.
