The release of three prominent opponents offers little sign that President Nicolás Maduro is softening his tone ahead of parliamentary elections on December 6.
This week’s likely top stories: The Summit of the Americas commences in Panama; petition criticizes U.S. action against Venezuela; Argentine Central Bank inspects Citibank; TSJ initiates missiles trial in Bolivia; Canada and Venezuela discuss investment in Venezuelan oil.
If Venezuela’s Latin American neighbors refuse to call for an end to repression and Ledezma’s release, they should at least make clear that barring opposition candidates and parties from the parliamentary elections would be unacceptable.
This week’s likely top stories: Peru’s allegations against Chile threaten relations; Panama to address conflict over Barro Blanco; Guatemala and Honduras to eliminate customs duties; São Paulo grapples with drought; Caracas Mayor to appeal conspiracy charges.
