Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez

A man will face trial for wearing a T-shirt with an insult to President Hugo Chavez, local media reported on Friday.

“Hugo, I s**t on your revolution,” was the message printed on a bright yellow T-shirt, Miguel Hernandez Souquett wore in February at a baseball game in Isla Margarita.

The 49-year-old was promptly arrested after the game and charged with “insulting a government leader.” He has been in and out of courtrooms ever since.

He told Venezuelan media that on Monday he received notice he will stand trial on December 1 in a criminal court in Nueva Esparta state, which includes Isla Margarita. - Sapa-AFP
