Rubio Calls For Immediate Release Of Mayor Antonio Ledezma In Venezuela

Feb 20, 2015 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the arrest of the Mayor of Caracas, Antonio Ledezma, by Venezuelan intelligence agents:

“The arrest of Mayor Antonio Ledezma and harassment of other key members of the democratic opposition is only the latest example of the Maduro regime’s cowardly and paranoid oppression of the Venezuelan people. Just one week ago marked the one year anniversary of the violent repression of peaceful demonstrators in Venezuela. Now, Mayor Ledezma’s arrest is only further proof that Nicolás Maduro will stop at nothing to secure his tyrannical rule and silence the Venezuelan people’s demand for a democratic and free future.

“I urge the Obama Administration to demand the immediate release of both Mayor Ledezma and opposition leader Leopoldo López, and furthermore, to implement provisions of the Venezuela sanctions bill that President Obama signed into law last year. These latest actions by the Maduro regime require a response from the Obama Administration. We cannot allow the Venezuelan people to suffer at the hands of Nicolás Maduro any longer, and implementing these sanctions is long overdue.”
