A spokesperson for the Commission for the Truth, Justice, Peace, and Tranquility for the Public of Venezuela, said the Commission had, "recommended to the judicial bodies of the country to adopt alternative measures to the deprivation of liberty."

The Commission went on to say Saleh has traveled to Spain at his own volition, where he will further undergo rehabilitation.

Saleh was held in an intelligent agency building in the capital, Caracas since 2014, after being detained in Colombia, and extradited. He was accused of carrying out paramilitary training in the country, where he was said to have plotted crimes against the constitutional order.

The 30 year-old Saleh was caught on a leaked video phone call bragging about hiring sharpshooters to cause civil unrest in Venezuela.

His release comes days after another opposition activist, Fernando Alban, threw himself from the 10th floor of the intelligence agency building.
