will chavez make new tribes mission leave?

hugo chavez from bbc

the bbc is reporting that president chavez is about to expel new tribes mission. new tribes is one of latin american's largest missionary organizations with 3,200 workers in 17 countries. according to the bbc article, "The New Tribes are leaving Venezuela, this is an irreversible decision that Ihave made. We don't want the New Tribes here. Enough colonialism!" and while he has yet to sign the expulsion order, he wants new tribes to be "gathering their stuff."

christianity today reports that "Though President Hugo Chavez last week ordered New Tribes Mission to leave Venezuela, the mission reports it hasn't received an official expulsion order and says it won't leave on media reports alone."
