In addition, the court warned that those who assume the designation as diplomats of the country will face criminal charges. The president of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), Juan José Mendoza, read on Friday a ruling declaring the “absolute nullity” of the ‘statute for transition’, issued by the National Assembly (AN). The highest court considers that the text released last February 5 by Parliament “openly violates the Constitution.

According to this ruling of the TSJ, the self-proclaimed “president in charge”, Juan Guaidó, “usurps” the functions of the president of the Republic, which is why the recent appointment of “diplomatic representatives” in the U.S. and a group of Latin American countries is declared “null and void”.
