"With their support, we join forces to continue the fight for true justice,” President Maduro tweeted.
On Saturday, thousands of Venezuelans marched in support of the anti-corruption policies undertaken by President Nicolas Maduro, who leads investigations into irregularities discovered in Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) and other public institutions.
"The honest ones are more" and "Maduro, hit the corrupt hard" were some of the phrases on the signs that people carried while walking from Carabobo Square to the PDVSA headquarters in Caracas.
"Here we are giving our support to the President of the Republic... Let no corrupt be spared because they harm the people," Caracas Mayor Carmen Melendez said.
"The revolution assumes and takes the lead in the fight against corruption undertaken by Nicolas Maduro," stressed United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) vice president Pedro Infante.
