Capriles: I fear neither courts nor defiant government officials
Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles stated that the Venezuelan Government attempts to "mislead people" and prevent political actors and ruling party's supporters from holding contact with leaders from other countries. "They (government officials) want to have a single and common voice abroad," he uttered
Responding to accusations of conspiracy, Capriles invited Minister of the Interior and Justice Néstor Reverol to present evidence or take back his words. The opposition leader remarked that he has never been afraid of the Venezuelan Government and that he never would.
With reference to corruption accusations against some opposition deputies and presented by official party deputies at the Congress session held on Tuesday, Capriles said that such allegations were not aimed at the deputies mentioned during the session, but at him.
The ex-presidential candidate underscored that he fears neither the "courts nor deputies, nor lawyers, nor defiant government officials."
