Venezuela’s exiled justice department issued an international arrest warrant for its own president, Nicolas Maduro.
The department called for Maduro’s arrest on suspicion of corruption in a letter to Jurgen Stock, the secretary-general of Interpol, dated on Monday.
It said that Maduro accepted, directly or indirectly, funds from illegal activity, and called for 18 years and three months in jail.
The letter was sent from Coral Gables, Florida.
Maduro’s whereabouts are not clear right now.
