Venezuelan opposition leader writes to Pope Francis ahead of presidential visit

2015-06-05

This is the letter that Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles wrote to Pope Francis. It was delivered ahead of the Pope's meeting with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Capriles asked the Pope to help start a dialogue with the government, which has rejected the Venezuelan Episcopal Conference's message for solving the economic, political and social crises in the country. 

The opposition leader is no stranger to Pope Francis: the two met in 2013. His letter also includes a list of problems in the country, including: a lack of medicine, food scarcity, and general insecurity.

Also discussed are political prisoners in the country, especially the opposition leaders who are leading a hunger strike because of their unjust imprisonment. 

A representative of bishops from the country recently said that Pope Francis will not visit Venezuela while there are political prisoners behind bars.
