Spain said the government does not want to extradite Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, who fled to the embassy in the capital Caracas, to secure himself from authorities of Venezuela.

At the same time, the government in Madrid warned Venezuelan authorities that the inviolability of the diplomatic mission would be respected.

Lopez thanked the Spanish embassy for welcoming him as a “guest”.

Shortly before, a court in Caracas had issued a warrant for the arrest of Lopez.

The Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) chased the founder of the opposition party Voluntad Popular to bring him to a military prison.

Soon after the planned coup attempt against the government of the  President Nicolas Maduro failed, Lopez then sought protection in the Spanish embassy.

According to the Spanish media, he stressed that it was not an attempted coup d’état. Rather, it is about the restoration of the constitutional order.

Lopez has been imprisoned since 2014. At that time, more than 40 people were killed in protests against the government.

A court sentenced Lopez to nearly 14 years in prison for inciting violence.

Most recently, the opposition leader was in house arrest. Many governments and human rights organizations saw Lopez as a political prisoner.
