Venezuela: Cuba-style court rules to keep opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez imprisoned

Via El Universal:

Judge gives the green light [to keep] Leopoldo López in jail

The ruling was issued by the Caracas 6th Control Judge, Adriana López, after 3:00 am on Thursday

The three-month term in Ramo Verde military jail (Los Teques, the capital city of central Miranda state) must be the prelude of what can be expected for the founder of opposition Voluntad Popular (People's Will) party. Now, Leopoldo López is at risk of staying more than 10 years behind bars as his trial has been ordered for presumably plotting the events last February 12 in an attempt at overthrowing the government of Venezuela's President Nicolás Maduro.

The decision was made by the Caracas 16th Control Judge, Adriana López, after 3:00 am on Thursday and after a marathon hearing starting on Monday and ending on Wednesday, at 4:00 p.m.

More than eight hours of pleadings by López's counsels for the defense were to no avail; the Judge accepted the petition of public prosecutors to put the opposition leader on the dock on charges of damages of public property, arson, unlawful assembly, and solicitation to crime, and not let him face trial in freedom.
