03.04.2019, Caracas.

The Supreme Court of Venezuela demanded Juan Guaidó be stripped of his parliamentary immunity in its address to the National Assembly.

Prior to a mass demonstration scheduled for April 6, the Supreme Court of Venezuela urged the parliament to strip Guaidó of immunity.

According to Guaidó’s statement, the aim of the event being prepared is to overthrow the current president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, whom the opposition leader accuses of falsifying election results.

The Venezuelan parliament, which had been chaired by Guaidó (until recently) is in opposition to President Maduro.

Previously, the Venezuelan authorities banned Guaidó from leaving the country because of his opposition activities. Two investigations are ongoing against the opposition leader, who has declared himself temporary acting president of the country.
