Venezuela: OAS Secretary General Calls for Immediate Release of Vladimir Araque

  September 15, 2016

The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, made an urgent appeal on Thursday demanding the release of Vladimir Araque, who was arrested without a warrant on May 2, 2014 in Caracas.

In addition, and for humanitarian reasons based on Mr. Araque’s serious health condition, the leader of the OAS called it imperative to provide urgent medical attention to the political prisoner, which has so far been denied by authorities.
