Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicolás Maduro was adamant to say on Thursday that the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) has the ultimate decision on the case of ex mayor Leopoldo López, barred from public office.

"We are a free, sovereign country," he underscored.

In an interview with private TV channel Venevisión, Maduro stressed that the Venezuelan high court has the ultimate word. He labeled as "late and anticipated" any ruling form the Inter-American Court of Human Rights on the case. To his mind, the IACHR Court is prone to favor Venezuelan rightwing politicians, AVN quoted.

The minister regretted that neither such organizations nor the media have discussed the reasons why the administrative sanction was meted out to López.

"They would rather conduct an investigation," the Foreign Minister said and remembered that thousand public servants have been subject to similar measures; most of them belonged to, or support, the ruling party.
