The Czech Republic Welcomes the Transfer of Venezuelan Opposition Politician Leopoldo López to House Arrest


The Czech Republic welcomes the decision of the Venezuelan government to transfer the Venezuelan opposition politician Leopold López to house arrest. In 2014 López was sentenced to nearly 14 years of prison, where he spent more than three years.

We see this action of the Venezuelan government as a step in the right direction and we believe that further positive signals from the government will follow. We hope for the release of other political prisoners and the restoration of their political rights and liberty in the future.
