Sentenced to 14 years in prison

Leopoldo López was sentenced to almost 14 years in prison in 2015 for, according to the Venezuelan Justice, inciting violence in the 2014 opposition revolts against the Maduro government. After passing through the Ramo Verde military prison in Caracas, he was placed under house arrest.

The opposition leader was at the Spanish Embassy in Caracas since Apr 30, 2019, when he took refuge in diplomatic facilities after Operation Libertad, an attempted military coup against Maduro in which López was released from house arrest by his own captors.

López I couldn’t ask for asylum because Spanish law only allows it to do so in national territory, so it remains a “guest” and with a limitation of its political activity.

In June the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal pointed to López as ideologist and organizer of Operation Gideon, a coup attempt against the government of President Nicolás Maduro frustrated in early May. López has denied this relationship.
