"In 2014, while a captain in the national guard and amid a previous wave of anti-government unrest, he released a 12-minute video denouncing Maduro". "We reiterate our solidarity with the Venezuelan people", the Nobel Peace Prize victor said. They are expected to be tried in military tribunals.

Its installation is virtually certain to intensify a political crisis that has brought four months of protests in which at least 120 people have died and hundreds more have been jailed. They intend to continue to do so, they announced, raising fears of tensions within the building.

The South American nation has for months been in the throes of a political crisis with protests that have left more than 100 dead, almost 2,000 wounded and over 500 detained.

Maduro responded to the worldwide criticism by telling an Argentine radio station that "Venezuela will not be taken out of Mercosur - never!"
