In solidarity with opposition Deputy Richard Mardo, who faces charges for suspected tax evasion and money laundering, Venezuelan opposition Governor Henrique Capriles said on Monday that Mardo has not committed any offence, and stressed that he was just set up a trap.

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."

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.
