He repeated that with the backing of allied governments led by the United States, "all options remain on the table" to resolve the national crisis, and that includes, he said, Nicolas Maduro stepping down from power, given that Guaido considers his presidency illegitimate.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino separately said that a US Coast Guard ship had entered Venezuelan territorial waters, which he said "we will not accept". On Wednesday, the court accused three others of the same crimes. "Zambrano's arrest may be a test to gauge the response of the worldwide community before it moves against Guaido".

The president was frustrated that Bolton led him to believe Maduro could be overthrown last week, when US -backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó led mass street protests that turned deadly.

He has since been recognised by more than 50 countries as he steps up the pressure to oust Maduro, whom he considers illegitimate after 2018 elections widely seen as fraudulent. If he is not immediately freed, there will be consequences, ' the embassy said on Twitter.

'They will have to pay before the courts for the failed coup that they attempted'. While the Trump administration has said all options "are on the table", neighboring Latin American countries have repeatedly rejected the idea of military intervention by Washington, and there's no indication the U.S.is preparing to send troops.

As part of the lawsuits filed by relevant authorities, a Venezuelan court with jurisdiction in terrorism cases on Friday ordered that the lawmaker from the National Assembly (Parliament) in contempt, Edgar Zambrano, be deprived of his freedom for flagrant participation in the coup.

However, the opposition endeavour backfired as they failed to convince enough military to break ranks and turn on Maduro.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday the Trump administration would soon sanction the 25 remaining members of the court.

Guaido in January invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency, denouncing Maduro as illegitimate after he secured re-election past year in a vote widely viewed as fraudulent.

"The deprivation of liberty of citizen Edgar Zambrano was handed down after his parliamentary immunity was revoked by the National Constituent Assembly", the statement said.

The United States on Friday imposed sanctions on two shipping companies operating in the oil sector of the Venezuelan economy, adding that individuals operating in Venezuelan defence and security sector might be subject to sanctions.
