My mayor: still in jail

Henrique Capriles Radonski, mayor of Baruta municipality in Eastern Caracas, will spend another 2 weeks in jail pending an extension granted to the Prosecution to conclude the "preliminary investigation." Do bear in mind that the events alleged took place 26 months ago, and the prosecution needs just a bit more time to investigate events...

It's a sham. Danilo Anderson knows he has no case against Capriles. Still, if he can make him spend a month or two in a Disip holding cell while they lose the trial, they'll take their opportunity.
