Minister Varela threatens to put Henrique Capriles behind bars
Minister of Penitentiary Affairs Iris Varela said the Venezuelan government is to report to domestic and foreign bodies what she described as "fascist actions" by the opposition. She said videos and testimonies would be presented as evidence. Further, she threatened to put opposition leader Henrique Capriles in jail
Just like other government spokespersons, she accused opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski of igniting violence across the country because he failed to recognize the election results. She vowed to send Capriles to jail for such actions.
"Capriles Radonski, you will not be left unpunished for this crime you masterminded."
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
