Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó will be banned from holding further public office for 15 years, the maximum allowed by law, the state financial controller has said.
Comptroller Elvis Amoroso said Guaidó’s personal financial statements contained inconsistencies.
Guaidó, head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, declared himself interim president in January.
He has the support of more than 50 countries, including the US.
Guaidó rejected Amoroso’s announcement, saying that he was “not auditor general”.
“The legitimate congress is the only one with power to designate an auditor general,” he said.
