Posted: Saturday, April 13, 2002
HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba said on Saturday reports deposed Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was headed for exile in the Caribbean island were the lies of "fascist coupsters," desperate to buy time as their ouster crumbled.
"If the coupsters brought Chavez by force to Cuba, our best and quickest plane would be ready to return him to the heroic people of his country who await him," a government statement said. MORE
