WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States has imposed sanctions against Venezuela’s Supreme Tribunal of Justice President Maikel Jose Moreno Perez and is offering a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Tuesday.
Pompeo accused Perez of obtaining money or property from bribes to sway the outcome of civil and criminal cases in Venezuela.
Pompeo noted that the US Treasury Department listed Moreno Perez in May 2017 as a Specially Designated National pursuant to Executive Order 13692 regarding Venezuela.
Under today’s designation, Moreno Perez and his spouse will be indefinitely ineligible for entry into the United States.
