Venezuelan Government Continues Intimidation Campaign

Mario Vargas Llosa, Peruvian novelist and father of Senior Fellow Alvaro Vargas Llosa, was also detained upon his arrival today at the Caracas International Airport. Venezuelan customs authorities withheld his passport and held him for nearly two hours after his flight landed. Vargas Llosa and his wife are on their way to their hotel after refusing a police escort. They plan to attend the same CEDICE forum as Senior Fellow Alvaro Vargas Llosa.
