Share
Share

Venezuelan prisoner of conscience, Leopoldo López, continues to be denied access to his lawyers since 8 April. Despite authorities allowing family visits since 7 May, they continue violating his right to a defense.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Demanding the Venezuelan authorities immediately grant Leopoldo López free and private access to his family and lawyers of his choosing;
  • Urging them to guarantee his personal integrity and provide him with medical attention of his preference;
  • Calling on them to release Leopoldo López immediately and unconditionally, as he is a prisoner of conscience who was arbitrarily detained and sentenced without any credible evidence against him.
