Venezuela's Attorney General Office has charged opposition leader and ex-mayor Leopoldo López for the alleged crime of undue influence. The accusation is related to the donations granted by state-run Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) in 1998 to then NGO Primero Justicia (Justice First).

The information was supplied by the office headed by Luisa Ortega Díaz in a press release.

The notice reads that the founder of opposition Voluntad Popular party is presumably involved in abuse of authority or ensuing improper influence.

López arrived on Thursday morning at the Public Prosecutor's Office located in downtown Caracas, where dozens of followers awaited. The hearing took for hours.

The funds were allotted by Pdvsa when López's mother, Antonietta Mendoza, worked at the state-owned company.
