Varela also reported that most of the inmates leaving Uribana will be taken to nearby Yaracuy.
She promised free transport for inmates' relatives from Lara state to the new prisons.
Varela is positive that her ministry actions show that government authorities are ready and determined to "bury the chapter of violence in the penitentiary system."
The minister briefed on nationwide sports activities from February. "We fight idleness with sports." She added that the purpose is to make the initiative of an international nature.
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.
