Venezuela’s Supreme Court banned opposition leader Juan Guaido from leaving the country and froze his bank accounts at a session in Caracas on Tuesday.

The head of the National Assembly is “prohibited from leaving the country without authorisation” until an investigation is completed, court president Maikel Moreno said.

The Supreme Court, which is loyal to the Venezuelan government, approved the “precautionary” measures proposed by Attorney-General Tarek William Saab.

Guaido has sought to unseat current Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro, declaring himself as interim president.

The US and a majority of Latin America countries have already recognised the opposition leader.

Russia, China, Mexico and Turkey have publicly backed Maduro.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
