  • Venezuela: Suspended attorney general Ortega barred from entering former office

    Venezuela's former chief prosecutor Luisa Ortega Diaz was sped away on the backseat of a motorbike after finding some 30 national guardsmen blocking her entrance to the public prosecutor's office in Caracas, Saturday. Government forces wearing riot gear surrounded the entrance to Ortega's headquarters, preventing her from entering the building where her office is situated. The guards were stationed outside of the office ahead of the first regular session of the newly selected National Constituent Assembly, where a unanimous vote decided that Ortega would be stripped of her title.

  • Venezuela opposition leader banned from office

    (8 Apr 2017) Venezuela's government has barred opposition leader Henrique Capriles - twice a major presidential candidate - from running for office for 15 years, a surprise move sure to ratchet up tensions amid a growing street protest movement. Capriles read from excerpts of the comptroller general's order at a rally on Friday night in which he urged supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a previously scheduled demonstration on Saturday, to defend their political rights and demand the removal of President Nicolas Maduro. The 44-year-old Capriles has been the most prominent leader of Venezuela's opposition over the past decade, twice coming close to winning the presidency despite institutional obstacles that tilted races in favour of the government. He's currently governor o...

  • Main Venezuela opposition leader barred from office for 15 years

    Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles said on Friday he has been banned from holding political office for 15 years, a move that could galvanize protests against the leftist government and upend a presidential election scheduled for 2018. Capriles, a two-time presidential candidate, was seen as the opposition's best hope to defeat President Nicolas Maduro, to whom he narrowly lost in a 2013 election. The punishment deals a blow to the opposition after stepped-up protests this week and accusations that Maduro, the unpopular handpicked successor of the late Hugo Chavez, was leading the country to dictatorship and cracking down on dissent.

(8 Apr 2017) Venezuela's government has barred opposition leader Henrique Capriles - twice a major presidential candidate - from running for office for 15 years, a surprise move sure to ratchet up tensions amid a growing street protest movement. Capriles read from excerpts of the comptroller general's order at a rally on Friday night in which he urged supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a previously scheduled demonstration on Saturday, to defend their political rights and demand the removal of President Nicolas Maduro. The 44-year-old Capriles has been the most prominent leader of Venezuela's opposition over the past decade, twice coming close to winning the presidency despite institutional obstacles that tilted races in favour of the government. He's currently governor of Miranda state, which surrounds Caracas, and is one of the most recognizable leaders behind the protest movement that has been roiling the country this week. Maduro didn't comment on the order in an appearance late Friday on state TV, but urged his supporters not to be distracted by tough language coming from "Capriloca," a play on the Spanish word for "crazy." Leaders in the ruling socialist party have accused Capriles in recent days of trying to provoke a bloodbath through his leadership of near-daily protests, many of which have ended in tear gas and rubber bullets. The move against Capriles is part of a broader government crackdown that began with a decision last week by the Supreme Court to gut the opposition-controlled congress of its last vestiges of power. The move was later reversed amid widespread international condemnation, but with the unpopular Maduro under increasing pressure to call elections, the constant arrests at marches and threats against party leaders may be his best way to stunt the opposition's momentum, analysts said. Authorities have been investigating Capriles since the beginning of the year for what they say are a half dozen administrative irregularities, including taking suspicious donations from abroad. Among Maduro's opponents, he's considered a moderate, having criticized a wave of protests in 2014 that led to scores of deaths.
