CARACAS, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Venezuela's Comptroller General Elvis Amoroso on Wednesday instructed the Superintendency of Banking Sector Institutions to block any transactions involving opposition leader Juan Guaido.

Amoroso cited irregularities by a Guaido financial aide, Javier Troconis, who was appointed by Guaido as the commissioner for asset management abroad.

Troconis, who owns the firm T&C Services, received 204 million U.S. dollars in contracts with the state-owned oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), the official said.

"Troconis wants to collect money that belongs to all Venezuelans and deliver it to Juan Guaido's personal bank accounts abroad," Amoroso said.

According to an investigation by the comptroller's office, the irregular transactions took place when the PDVSA was under the leadership of Rafael Ramirez, who once served as the company's CEO. Enditem
