She indicated that the Electric General Staff has decided to create six work commissions to protect the national electrical system.
The vice president said that Jorge Rodriguez, sector vice president of communication, will show in the coming days new evidence provided by the meticulous investigation carried out. “There is no doubt about the acts of cyber sabotage, physical attacks, alteration of transmission mechanisms, which seeks to directly attack the source of electricity generation.”
