[JURIST] Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez [BBC profile] announced Sunday that his nation would take legal action against Christian evangelist Pat Robertson [personal website] and could seek his extradition to Venezuela, after Robertson suggested his assassination [AP report] last week. In a televised speech, Chavez said Venezuela could have Robertson extradited under international treaties and if the Bush Administration did not take action, could go to the UN. Chavez called Robertson "crazy" and a "public menace" and said, "to call for the assassination of a head of state is an act of terrorism." Robertson has apologized [JURIST report] for his remarks and US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has dismissed Robertson's comments as those of a private citizen not representative of US policy.
