Univision’s Jorge Ramos was held by Venezuela’s Maduro after Ramos showed the dictator a video he took of Venezuelans eating out of a garbage truck.

Fox News reports that the interview was stopped and Ramos was detained along with his team for over 2 hours in a dark room:

“When I showed him these images, he said that the interview was over. He didn’t like the things we were asking, about the lack of democracy in Venezuela, the torture of political prisoners, about the humanitarian crisis that they are living.”

The group was eventually allowed to leave but all of their camera equipment was taken.

Ramos describes what happened:

The video was shown mid-interview by Ramos to the Venezuelan leader who was not too happy being asked about it.


Maduro stormed out of the interview and the group was taken to a dark room.

Ramos’ daughter was in contact with her father and was able to reveal that he had been released after over 2 hours in captivity:

“Just talked to my dad. He is safe. He told me that 15 mins into his interview, Maduro stopped him & then forced him & his team into a dark room for 2.5 hours. He was then released without any of his belongings.”


Vice President Pence held an emergency summit with leaders from nations surrounding Venezuela. He urged them to do more to end the murderous regime in Venezuela:

“It’s time to do more. The day is coming soon when Venezuela’s long nightmare will end, when Venezuela will once more be free, when her people will see a new birth of freedom, in a nation reborn to Libertad.”
