MADRID (Reuters) - Venezuelan opposition politician Leopoldo Lopez will arrive in Spain on Sunday after spending the past year at the Spanish ambassador's residence in Venezuela to escape house arrest, two sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

Lopez was jailed in 2014 after leading protests against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. He was released to house arrest in 2017.

From house arrest, he was a mentor to opposition leader Juan Guaido, who early last year invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency and began a campaign to unseat Maduro.

In April 2019, when Guaido tried to spur a military revolt against Maduro, Lopez appeared on the streets again alongside him. When the uprising fizzled, Lopez sought shelter first in the Chilean diplomatic residence and then at the home of the Spanish ambassador.

Jennifer Lopez says she had to 'break out' of playing stereotypical roles like 'the maid' onscreen .
"I was like, 'I don't want to do that,'" Lopez said. "I had to break out of that, and convince somebody to put me in the first romantic comedy."In a virtual panel for Variety's "Power of Women" series, Lopez reminisced with her former-agent-turned-coproducer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas about how she had to fight against Latina stereotypes when she was auditioning earlier in her acting career.
