Non-governmental organization Amnesty International (AI) issued a public communiqué rejecting the detention of Caracas Metropolitan Mayor Antonio Ledezma on Thursday.

"The arrest of Caracas Mayor, Antonio Ledezma, yesterday is very worrying. In the current Venezuelan context, there is nothing left but to assume that once again, the authorities are not interested in prioritizing human rights protection, but silencing dissenting voices," the communiqué read.

"Over the last year people have been detained simply because the fact of being dissenters o having a critical vision of the government. The detention of the Caracas mayor adds one more person to the already long list of politically-driven detentions," Amnesty International regretted.
