Caracas (People's Daily) -- Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido is to be barred from holding public office for 15 years, following an investigation that showed irregularities in his financial records, state Comptroller General Elvis Amoroso said on Thursday.

"Disqualify from holding any public office the citizen Juan Gerardo Antonio Guaido Marquez," Amoroso said, following the investigation into his declaration of assets.

The decision will be "for the maximum period established in the decree with the scope, courage and strength of the law against corruption," Amoroso added.
