CARACAS --  The Catholic Church is rejecting a new law that critics say could force Venezuelans to act as informants for intelligence agencies.

President Hugo Chávez decreed the law last week to overhaul the nation's intelligence services. Community groups may be called on to provide information to the government.

Chávez says that will help authorities combat threats to national security.

But Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino says the Church has studied the law in depth and rejects it.

Speaking to journalists after a Mass on Friday, Urosa said the new law ``restricts human rights consecrated in the Constitution.''
