Venezuela says seeks harmony, repect as it releases Utah man

In fact he has been held without trial by the Venezuelan government, on weapons charges USA officials have dismissed as trumped up.

Holt, a Mormon, flew to Venezuela to marry Thamy Holt, a woman he met online. Authorities arrested him on June 30, 2016, and accused him of stockpiling an assault rifle and grenades, suggesting his case was linked to other unspecified USA attempts to undermine Maduro's rule amid deep economic and political turbulence.

Josh Holt, the man with ties to Pocatello, and his wife Thamy has been released from a Venezuelan jail.

The U.S. government at first avoided ratcheting up public pressure on Venezuela in light of their already strained relations, but eventually raised Holt's case with the highest levels of the Venezuelan government and decried his treatment in prison. But witnesses say they saw Venezuelan police, accused of demanding $10,000 from Holt and Candelo, plant weapons just before arresting the couple - and announcing the discovery of the arms.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) announced Saturday that the Trump administration has secured the release of Joshua Holt, 26, from captivity in Venezuela after he was held there for nearly two years.

Bob Corker for his "pivotal efforts" and the "Senate Foreign Relations Committee for their help in this effort". Relations between the USA and Venezuela have been strained recently, particularly over the election which last week returned Maduro to power. In retaliation, socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello, a powerful ally of Maduro, said on state television that Holt was the CIA's top spy in Latin America. "Should be landing in DC this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7pm".

"The great people of Utah will be very happy", Trump wrote.

Holt's family says "we are grateful to all who participated in this miracle".

The announcement came as a the Venezuelan government had appeared to be doubling down on claims that Holt was a US government agent.
