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."
