Venezuelan High Court Bars Opposition Leader From Leaving

Venezuela’s  high court has blocked  opposition leader Juan Guaido from leaving the country and frozen his assets.

The news came just hours after the country’s  head prosecutor  announced he’s investigating Guaido’s anti-government activities, and requested the Supreme Court approve those restrictions.

Last week, Guaido — the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly — declared himself interim president.

The U.S. and several other countries jumped in to back him, overstepping Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.  U.S. national security adviser John Bolton  issued the Venezuelan government  a warning on Sunday, saying any violence or intimidation against U.S. diplomats in Venezuela or Guaido would be met with "a significant response."  And on Monday, the Trump administration slapped sanctions against Maduro and Venezuela's state-owned oil firm PDVSA.

The Venezuelan government  denounced the move , saying Maduro would "evaluate and take the corresponding legal measures to face this new aggression."
