Venezuela govt: Chavez will not be embalmed
Friday - 3/15/2013, 8:11pm EDT
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's information minister says the government has decided that the body of Hugo Chavez will not be embalmed for permanent display, as officials had said it would be.
Ernesto Villegas' tweet Friday night says the government has discarded the option based on the advice of a Russian medical commission.
The message says the commission had said Chavez's body would have to be sent to Russia for seven to eight months to be properly embalmed.
Acting President Nicolas Maduro announced last week that Chavez's body would be perpetually displayed, but then on Wednesday he said that now seemed "highly unlikely."
Chavez died March 5 after succumbing to cancer. The government moved his body Friday from a military academy where it had been on display to a hilltop military museum.
