Controversy over the signing of Hugo Chavez
January 29, 2013
The signing of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, in a letter written in the Cuban hospital and read by Nicolás Maduro, raised many doubts about its authenticity.
According to the expert in graphology, Ana Molins: “a priori is difficult to certify the authenticity of it, because in the absence of the original documents, you can analyze key aspects, such as, for example, drag the pen itself or the pen with which he signed.”
“In any case, the signature shown on Monday casts considerable doubt as having been made in yesterday or today, it should show signs of a sick person.”
“The signature of a person who is convalescing, and you just go through a situation so delicate health has to show breaks, hesitations, as the signing of an older person.”
“They are signs that are not in the signature shown today by Nicolás Maduro, and, as seen in the photograph, signature has the same force as that given by his side, made when Chavez had not yet been operated”.
“The normal signs of a recovering person are far from those that can be seen, therefore, in this letter the firm would have to reveal pen lift, because a person who has gone through such a situation is not strong enough to make his usual signature.”
