Venezuelan opposition leader to face jail sentence despite Trump’s support











Despite the fact that the Venezuelan opposition leader, Leopoldo Lopez, is enjoying unconditional support from one of the most powerful leaders of the world -US President Donald Trump- the country’s Supreme Court has upheld the fourteen-year imprisonment given to him. Recently, the US supremo, immediately after the visit of the Lopez’s wife, Lilian Tintori, to the United States, expressed, though his twitter handle, that the Venezuelan opposition leader should be released immediately. It is said that the ailing Venezuelan government is not interested in making a war against one of the most powerful nations of the world. However, this action which is evidently provoking the US’ new regime is likely to affect the bilateral relation between the US and Venezuela. While speaking to the media personals, the above-mentioned opposition leader claims that it is a politically motivated verdict. It is reported that his wife, while making an emotional appeal to the media, shared the same opinion as that of his husband who was, according to her, imprisoned illegally. Anyway, it is the final verdict so it is impossible to make any other appeal over the case. Meanwhile, some political leaders, close to the Venezuelan regime, opine that the US government is interfering in the personal affairs of the country purposefully. Undoubtedly, the issue will drag the Latin American country into a more severe economic crisis.
