Wives of Venezuelan Political Prisoners Garner Regional Support

“I plan on going wherever I need to go.” These were the words of Mitzy Capriles, wife of jailed Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma, as she embarked on a tour across Latin America to raise awareness about the critical human-rights situation in Venezuela. Mitzy Capriles and Lilian Tintori, spouse of imprisoned Popular Will (VP) party leader Leopoldo López, arrived in Argentina on Friday, March 27, after visiting Peru and Brazil, where they sought local support for the release of their husbands from prison.
