The Legitimate Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela informs the country and the international community that an operation to remove the Presidential Commissioner for the Government Center Coordination, Leopoldo López, from the national territory was successfully completed. This operation mocked the repression apparatus of the Nicolás Maduro dictatorship.
From this new space of struggle, the presidential commissioner Leopoldo Lopez will be able to assume and promote measures and actions necessary to achieve our freedom, without the political, communicational, legal, and diplomatic restrictions that his former condition forced him to.
Commissioner Lopez will continue with greater commitment and gives his support to the people of Venezuela, the interim President Juan Guaidó, the Legitimate Government, the National Assembly, and the democratic political and social forces of the country.
We are grateful for the historic contribution of the Government of Spain, and of its Ambassador in Caracas, Jesús Silva, as guarantors of the physical integrity of Leopoldo López during the months in which he was welcomed as a guest at its diplomatic headquarters in Caracas.
The people of Venezuela, its Interim President, and the members of the Legitimate Government express our gratitude and recognition to all the diplomatic staff of the Spanish Embassy in Caracas.
To the people of Venezuela and the international community: we are sure that, from this new space of struggle, Commissioner Lopez will give greater strength and force to the action of the Legitimate Government of Venezuela to achieve the freedom of our country.
Defeat the dictatorship!
