Venezuela: Further information: Campaign for prisoner of conscience continues
Prisoner of conscience and union leader Rubén González has been arbitrarily detained since 29 November 2018. His trial was highly irregular, and in August 2019 he was sentenced by a military court despite his civilian status. His health problems have been aggravated by his detention and he has been denied the medical care he urgently needs. There have been no developments in his case. Amnesty International will continue to monitor his situation and advocate for his unconditional release.
