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."
Around 1.5 million Venezuelans have decided to emigrate in search of a better future for their families. The figure accounts to between 4% and 6% of the overall population. Approximately 88% of these expatriates have made up their mind to emigrate over the last 15 years.
