He added: “I told Nicolas Maduro that millions of Venezuelans and many governments in the world do not consider him a legitimate president and they consider him to be a dictator.”

“This is a violation of freedom of expression and a violation of human rights, a violation of all the principles of journalism,” Ramos also stressed. “They think the interview is theirs, and not ours. They are stealing our work.”

Ramos and his team plan to leave Venezuela on Tuesday. In the Facebook video, Ramos expressed doubt he would ever get his equipment or his interview materials back, noting “they don’t want the world to see.”
