Venezuela probes alleged plot to assassinate president

Published:Thursday | December 4, 2014 | 10:12 AM

Venezuela's chief prosecutor has launched an investigation into leading opposition figure Maria Corina Machado over an alleged plot to assassinate the President, Nicolas Maduro.

Machado, a former congresswoman, led a major street protest against President Maduro's government in January.

The alleged plot came in a series of emails which Machado says are fake.

She has dismissed the accusations as a charade designed to silence her.

Machado says the charges are designed to distract Venezuelans from a growing economic crisis.
