Governor Rosselló spoke with wife of Venezuelan Leopoldo López
(June 27, 2017 – Washington, DC) Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, spoke on the phone with Venezuelan activist Lilian Tintori de López and pledged to collaborate in alliances with the continent's democratic leaders in defense of the fundamental rights of Venezuelans, who are facing a political and economic crisis in the South American country.
The communication arose precisely after Tintori de López denounced that she has not seen her husband Leopoldo López for 23 days and López’s lawyers haven’t had any contact with the Venezuelan political prisoner for 82 days.
"I want to express my solidarity with the family of Leopoldo López and the Venezuelan people who have had to face a shortage of food and medicine in recent times. Our call is to assert democracy in Venezuela. Venezuelans can always count on Puerto Rico as their ally in this demand," said the Governor of Puerto Rico.
The Governor has joined the request of American leaders, such as United States Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida), for a stabilization of democracy in Venezuela.
