Venezuela assembly backs treason trials
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

VENEZUELA’S new constituent assembly has voted to put opposition leaders on trial for treason.

The assembly said Tuesday it would pursue those it accuses of supporting U.S. economic sanctions against the country. Washington approved the measures last week in response to what it called the “dictatorship” of President Nicolas Maduro.

President Maduro has accused the U.S. of trying to cripple Venezuela’s economy amid an ongoing economic crisis.

On Tuesday, members of the assembly unanimously approved a decree calling for the investigation of “traitors” who supported the economic sanctions, but did not name specific people.

The constituent assembly, which is made up of government supporters, assumed the powers of the opposition-led parliament earlier this month.

Former Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez, who runs the assembly, said the body would urge the chief prosecutor to begin investigations immediately.

The country’s former chief prosecutor Luisa Ortega was replaced by the constituent assembly on its first day in office.(SD-Agencies)
