Maria Corina Machado charged with conspiracy

Opposition leader Maria Corina Machado has formally heard charges of “conspiracy to destroy the republican way of politics” from the Prosecutor’s office today. Her lawyer, Tomás Arias says that the charges do not mention magnicidio (attempt to kill the head of state), but that Machado could face a prison sentence of 8 to 16 years for conspiracy.

El Nacional has a good summary of the case up to today.
