Interviewed on Colombian TV, Adjovi Speaks for UN on Venezuelan Prisoners

October 28, 2014

Roland Adjovi, assistant professor of political science at Arcadia University, was interviewed on La Tarde, a news program on 24-hour Columbian news network NTN24, on Oct. 11. Adjovi spoke on the detentions of Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez and former mayor of San Cristóbal, Venezuela, Daniel Ceballos in February and March 2014, respectively.

The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (to which Adjovi was appointed in May) determined that the arrests of Lopez and Ceballos were arbitrary and called for their freedom, according to a press release issued by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

In the interview, which is in Spanish, Adjovi discusses the Venezuelan government’s obligation to act in accordance with the Working Group’s findings and to release the prisoners.
