Doctor who spoke of Chavez’s cancer leaves Venezuela

Chavez

A Venezuelan doctor who forecast President Hugo Chavez would die of cancer within two  years said today he had left the country with his family after colleagues reported police visiting his consultancy.

Salvador Navarrete, who attended Chavez a decade ago and is in touch with some relatives and members of his medical team,  caused uproar in Venezuela with comments last weekend that the  president had a serious cancer — sarcoma — in the pelvis.

Chavez allies accused him of “morbid” motives and  “necrophilia”. Then his version was directly contradicted by  Chavez, who returned from tests in Cuba on Thursday declaring he was free of malignant cells.

    Chavez behave yourself….your approach to your health situation is ridiculous.

    Venezuela is not yours, give it up and let freedom reign….u see where Ghadafi is lying right now…..this is a road we all have to travel, I just wish some of us acted like we are aware of that fact.

    A man should not have to leave his country for expressing his opinion….behave yourself Chavez!

    U c,these are the things i do not like about these dictators who wants to hold on to power.One should have the right to speak one’s mind so long one’s opinion does not threaten the life of another.These wicked men feels threaten by others who shares a different view but wants to destroy another who simply opposes their politics.After all the living examples of their comrades who went down,yet still they do not see it fit to humble themselves.Mubarak fell,the Tunisian one fell,Saddam lost his life and look Quadaffi lost his life foolishly.Assad will soon be gone,so to all u dictators your days are numbered,the people is the power not the guns you hold.

    You know what, I think i get you. Some people think you were talking good about the leaders you mentioned, but i read that differently and i can clearly see you are actually blasting them. First i read it like you crazy but then i said to myslef, no that is someone who knows what he/she is saying……but if by any chance you mean what you wrote….I would call you a JACKASS… I am giving you the benefit of a doubt.

    Don’t worry all chicken are coming to home.these a re the type pf people our leaders what to form ties with. The doctor cannot even have his own opinion in his country.

    Show me your friends and i will show u who u are..remember that saying. Do what you might and say what u will no one can fight justice. It may take long but it will come sooner or later. it took Gaddafi 42 years but his chicken finally came home. so let these leaders keep it up. 99 days for the thieve. The master only needs one.

    Chavez will never speak the truth of his ailment. Time will tell about him and how long he will last.
    The doctor was forced to leave lest he be taken into custody and disappear for speaking the truth. This goes to show that Chavez is another downright dictator who suppresses freedom of speech. I am certain that the doctor could serve better in another country and a free one at that. I wish him well.
