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."
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
