Due to Venezuela's high political polarization, Moreno is seen as a victim of political pursuit and a hero for Chávez's opponents, and a criminal for others. The government opponents claim he is being pursued mainly because of his fervent activities against the government. Authorities claim he is pursued because he is accused of attempting to rape Sofía Aguilar, the victim and police officer, who identified Nixon Moreno as the attacker, a fact that she declared for the state media (Venezolana de Television) . According to journalist Marta Colomina (who openly opposes Chávez's regime), in June, 2006, a National Assembly commission, presided by Deputy Obdulio Camacho (all the National Assembly deputies were elected as Chávez partisans), reportedly concluded that it was untrue that Nixon was the person that tried to rape her . ULA President, other authorities and TV footage indicate that at the hour of the events denounced by police woman Aguilar, Nixon was in a clinic, at another end of the city, treating a bleeding face wound caused by a plastic shot (which Ms Aguilar did not mention).
