The National Telecommunications Commission has ordered the closing of the open signal of Radio Caracas, on Tuesday.
The radio station reported, through its Twitter account, that a Conatel delegation arrived at 11:00 am on the premises and ordered the signal to be closed.
RCR transmitted information on Tuesday about the military uprising at La Carlota Air Force Base in Caracas, where the Venezuelan military supported interim President Juan Guaidó early in the morning. Also in the location was Leopoldo López, who was imprisoned for over five years for political reasons and was released.
The National Union of Press Workers reported in its Twitter account that journalists who carried out an information radio operation in the country notified the situation of the station.
The station was removed from the air and journalists who maintained a live information agent reported the incident.
