The Venezuelan Embassy in Russia denied on Thursday media reports that President Hugo Chavez had been brain-dead since December and was recently disconnected from life-supporting equipment.

On Wednesday, Colombian TV channel NTN24 reported, citing Panama’s former Ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS) Guillermo Cochez, that Chavez’s brain died on December 30. Chavez had been fighting a prolonged battle with cancer.

Cochez added that Chavez was brought to Venezuela from Cuba last week, because Cuban authorities refused to disconnect him from a lung ventilator.

“The Embassy of Venezuela rejects media reports that President Hugo Chavez, allegedly in a vegetative state, was disconnected from a lung ventilator,” the embassy said in a statement.
