Joint Statement by Mr. Vadells’ Counsel
Two years ago a few days before the Thanksgiving holiday, Mr. Tomeu Vadell of Lake Charles, Louisiana, along with four other Americans and a U.S. LPR, was unlawfully detained by the government of Venezuela. Tomeu and the other men have been denied due process of law and held in inhumane conditions ever since.
Despite the many challenges of presenting a legal defense in Venezuela, and also pursuing this matter in the United States, Mr. Vadell’s legal team for several weeks has been preparing measures in Caracas, Houston, and Washington, D.C. to help secure the unconditional release of Tomeu.
