Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro on Tuesday expressed his support for Penitentiary Affairs Minister Iris Varela after a riot in Uribana prison, northwest Venezuela, that left 58 dead and 95 injured.

"We give our full support, all our support, and our company so that she can continue with this work," the vice-president said, and underscored Varela's "huge efforts," Efe, cited. 

"We need the country to have prisons that are really model prisons," he added.

Maduro expressed his condolences to the relatives of the casualties of Uribana prison, and remarked that the prison population is the "direct result" of capitalism.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
