The family of Venezuelan opposition MP Juan Requesens announced his release on Friday after serving more than two years in prison for allegedly involved in the alleged attack on Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro in 2018.
“My brother Juan is at home. Although my brother can sleep at home and in his bed today, there are many innocent Venezuelans who cannot. We will not stop fighting for them,” said the sister of opposition leader Rafaela Requesens via his Twitter account.
However, he has insisted that they are “very clear” that Requesens “is not yet free” and has insisted that they will not stop fighting “until he and all of Venezuela are”.
Requesens was arrested on August 7, 2018 by agents of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN) who were charged with participating in the alleged assassination attempt against Maduro that had taken place days earlier during a military parade in Caracas court.
