"The precautionary measures agreed by the plenary chamber to guarantee procedural action consist of the following: a prohibition on citizen Luisa Ortega Diaz to leave the country… and freeze on all bank accounts," the court said in a statement.
The court reportedly ruled on Tuesday there was enough evidence to start procedures against the outspoken prosecutor at a request of a lawmaker from President Nicolas Maduro’s ruling Socialist party. She is expected to testify at a court hearing on July 4.
Ortega has been increasingly critical of President Maduro and his decision to call a special assembly to rewrite the constitution as a way out of the deepening political crisis. She previously filed a lawsuit to the Supreme Tribunal asking to strip immunity from eight justices, followed by three suits against the constituent assembly.
