Venezuela's Chief Prosecutor Asks for Release of Mormon Joshua Holt


After Joshua Holt and his wife spent more than a year in a Venezuelan prison, Venezuela's chief prosecutor is requesting a conditional release for both. 

Venezuela’s chief prosecutor has requested the conditional release of a Utah man and his wife detained for over a year on weapons charges.

The petition to have Joshua Holt and his wife Thamara Candelo freed but barred from leaving Venezuela while awaiting trial was made Friday because of what the prosecutor’s office said were undue delays in his prosecution.
