Congress' Speaker: opposition leader's statement is a declaration of war
Via Twitter, Diosdado Cabello stated that Capriles had violated the memory of the Venezuelan Head of State and his supporters.
After opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski announced his candidacy to the presidential election and criticized the way the Venezuelan Government managed information concerning President Hugo Chávez's health and death, Congress's Speaker Diosdado Cabello regarded Capriles statements as a "declaration of war."
Via Twitter, Cabello stated that Capriles had violated the memory of the Venezuelan Head of State and his supporters.
Additionally, responding to Capriles' statements, which included criticism of the defense minister, ruling party Deputy Freddy Bernal voiced the Government's strong support for the Armed Forces.

As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
