The Ambassador to Spain, Antonio Ecarri Bolívar, thanked Spain for “the firmness with which it has guaranteed the integrity of Leopoldo López, a guest at the residence of the Spanish Ambassador in Caracas since April 30th, 2019. This action has allowed the political leader to be with his family today and to begin a new stage as Presidential Commissioner for the coordination of the Center of Government.”
Ecarri informed that the operation for the evasion of López, both from the diplomatic headquarters in Caracas and from Venezuela, has been successfully completed.
“It has outwitted the dictatorship’s apparatus of repression, which shows that it is increasingly weakened,” he points out.
Ecarri also manifested his protest against the actions of the regime against the diplomatic personnel of the Spanish Embassy in Caracas, which included raids to their residences and arbitrary detentions of several of the workers of the diplomatic headquarters.
Finally, Ambassador Ecarri assured that: “The members of the legitimate government of Venezuela, presided over by Juan Guaidó, thank and recognize all the diplomatic personnel of the Embassy of Spain in Caracas for their commitment to democracy in Venezuela”. At the same time, he sent a word of encouragement to the Venezuelans in Spain so that this will be an additional impulse in the fight for the freedom of Venezuela, which belongs to all of us.
Hoy los demócratas celebramos que @leopoldolopez haya logrado burlar a sus carceleros y recuperado su libertad que esperaban con angustia sus familiares y toda Venezuela. La lucha es en todos los terrenos por la libertad de nuestra patria. ¡BIENVENIDO!
