Caracas, Jan 30: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro told Sputnik in an interview that no arrest warrant for opposition leader Juan Guaido, who proclaimed himself interim president, has been issued so far.
"As far as I know, this measure has not been taken so far. Let's wait for [the completion] of internal constitutional and judicial processes in order to see the results. We will not hurry up, we will wait," Maduro said.
According to Maduro, this issue is a constitutional matter of the Venezuelan justice.
"As the head of state, I have an opinion that a coup d'état is being pushed forward that is a violation of the constitution. But this is only the opinion of the head of state. The prosecutor general has to act, and he has already started to act, the Supreme Court is to act, and it is already acting. And the decisions of the prosecutor’s office and courts will be implemented by the Venezuelan legal system," Maduro added.
On Tuesday, the Venezuelan Supreme Tribunal of Justice banned Guaido from leaving the country and blocked his bank accounts until the completion of the investigation. (UNI)
