National Assembly deputy Gilber Caro was released from detention tonight alongside two other political prisoners, Melvin Farias and Junior Rojas, on the event of a visit to the country by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Through his official Twitter account, Juan Guaido sent a message in which he argued that Caro should never have been arrested in the first place, and that he was not truly free:
Deputy [Gilber Caro] has all of our respect. He never should have been arrested. He has been an example of how to get up and keep moving forward.
He leaves a prison cell but he is not free, and neither is Venezuela. The revolving door [through which our] political prisoners [pass] will only come to an end in democracy.
There are still approximately 790 political prisoners in Venezuela.
