After Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello accused opposition Primero Justicia party of corruption, opposition deputies Richard Mardo and Gustavo Marcano gave a press conference to explain how the donations the party received were spent.

Mardo said the accusations made on Tuesday at the National Assembly against his party are "one of the most horrific chapters (...) because the leading character, who led the debate, has never given an explanation to the country." Reference was made to Cabello.

Mardo claimed that former opposition deputy William Ojeda, who is now a government supporter, following instructions of Cabello, tried to buy him off in order to harm opposition leaders Julio Borges and Henrique Capriles.

"They could not buy me; they could not break my legs. I stood firm because I have a clear conscience," he said.

He said all the contributions they received from private companies were used to help the poor.

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.
