Rejecting strong criticism against his recent meeting with left-wing former Spanish President Felipe González in Colombia, Venezuelan opposition leader and ex-presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski stated that the Venezuelan Government attempts to "mislead people" and prevent political actors and ruling party supporters from holding contact with leaders from other countries. "They (government officials) want a single and common voice (to represent Venezuela) abroad," he uttered. 

Responding to accusations of conspiracy, Capriles invited Minister of the Interior and Justice Néstor Reverol to present evidence or take back his words. The opposition leader remarked that he has never been afraid of the Venezuelan Government and that he never would.

With reference to corruption accusations against some opposition deputies and presented by official party deputies at the Congress session held on Tuesday, Capriles said that such allegations were not aimed at the deputies mentioned during the session, but at him. 

The ex-presidential candidate underscored that he fears neither the "courts nor deputies, nor lawyers, nor defiant government officials."

Living with HIV/AIDS (I)

Let us start by looking at what appears to be a discrepancy in figures. According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications.  But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
