( CNN) Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, whose recent imprisonment was criticized by the international community, was liberated to house arrest late Saturday.

“They simply brought Leopoldo home. We are working with more sentence and more firmly in order to find peace and freedom for Venezuela !, ” his wife Lilian Tintori tweeted.

On Tuesday, Lopez and Antonio Ledezma — another opposition leader under house arrest — were removed by armed boys from their homes after a controversial Sunday vote in Venezuela.
