Compromising photo of congressman Vega Antonio was tampered with

Seven of the photos showing apparent misbehavior by congressmen Javier Velásquez Quesquén and José Vega Antonio during an official trip to Brazil last year appear to have been doctored.

Comparing the images with originals from the camera of congressman Carlos Torres Caro, a team from TV news program 24 Horas determined that at least one of the pictures published in the magazine Caretas has been altered to change the location and circumstances under which it was taken.

The image in question is the one that shows Vega Antonio seemingly in an alcoholic stupor at the night club, leaning against a wall. In the original, he seems to be taking a rest at a shoe shop.

In the other images that show some evidence of tampering, the differences are much less significant.
