Venezuelan prosecutors said Thursday they will arraign the president of an opposition television station on charges related to his car dealership business. Prosecutors said in a statement that Guillermo Zuloaga must appear before a local court next week for unnamed crimes after authorities uncovered "presumed irregularities" at two Toyota dealerships he jointly owns. Zuloaga also runs Globovision, Venezuela's only remaining television station on the open airwaves that stridently opposes President Hugo Chavez. Broadcast regulators earlier this month began investigating Globovision for purportedly inciting "panic and anxiety" by criticizing the government for its slow response to a mild earthquake.
