Minister of Penitentiary Affairs Iris Varela said the government would present at domestic and foreign bodies evidence of the attacks where a number of healthcare centers were burnt and Chavezism activists were harassed during the April 14 presidential election and subsequent days.

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."

Is protest over?

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.
