During an event in support of opposition Deputy Richard Mardo, opposition leader Henrique Capriles stressed that Mardo has never misappropriated money from public accounts
During an event in support of Mardo, arranged by umbrella opposition group MUD, Capriles made it clear that Mardo has never misappropriated money from public accounts.
Capriles called for trust and support from citizens, and hinted, "We are risking everything for a higher purpose: changing Venezuela."
Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
