Human-Rights Commission Demands Protection for López, Ceballos

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has called on the Venezuelan government to urgently adopt "the measures necessary to preserve the personal integrity of Leopoldo López and Daniel Ceballos." In a resolution issued on April 20, responding to a request made on August 23, 2014, the regional human-rights body also requests that Venezuela “ensure that their conditions of detention are adjusted to meet international standards.”
