CARACAS -- During the first session of the National Constituent Assembly on Saturday, the request for removal of the office of Attorney General of the Republic, Luisa Ortega Díaz, was declared, as well as an endorsement of a lawsuit against Ortega.
The request was filed by the Constituent Diosdado Cabello and it seeks its prosecution for alleged serious misconduct in the exercise of his position and suspend her tenure.
Cabello moved that her assets be frozen and she be prevented from leaving the country, among shouts calling her "traitor" and "justice has arrived."
The ANC approved Cabello's application to assign Tarek William Saab as the new provisional attorney general.
