This weekend it was known that the rent of the luxurious residence where the fugitive from justice Leopoldo López lives in Madrid, near El Retiro, is 10 euros per month.
The information published by the ABC newspaper of Spain last Saturday indicates that the high five-digit figure was known through sources after the agency Engel & Völkers closed the deal for the rental of the property, it is one of the contractors most highly valued in Europe that has provided its services to the royal family of Spain on several occasions.
The residence of López, founder of the political party Voluntad Popular, defined by the prosecutor Saab as a “criminal organization”, is located in a stately white building in Príncipe de Vergara a few minutes from Retiro, and is where he has lived comfortably and peacefully for three months after starring in a movie break through Colombia, reports the publication of the Spanish newspaper.
The news caused an immediate impact on social networks, after his followers questioned his ostentatious tastes. López has been a fugitive from Venezuelan justice since April 30, 2019, the day on which, after the failure of the coup that he organized together with Juan Guaidó, he chose to go to the Spanish embassy in Venezuela, from where he left the country with the collaboration of the diplomatic representatives of the Iberian nation, a country where today he resides between luxuries and the reviews of his life by the pink press.
This Monday, the president of the National Assembly (AN), Jorge Rodríguez, asked the Comptroller General of the Republic to investigate the resources used by the Venezuelan opposition, during the time they occupied the National Assembly. He added that this Tuesday the issue will be debated by the Commission appointed for it.
"Tomorrow at the AN we will discuss how it is possible that Leopoldo López can rent a home in the most expensive neighborhood of Madrid, and ABC says it, I'm not saying it," said Rodríguez.
