Travel ban for Venezuelan opposition leader

A travel ban has been imposed on Juan Guaidó, the leader of the opposition by the Supreme Court of Venezuela.

It prohibits him from leaving the country while also freezing his bank accounts.

The ban comes directly after Mr Guaidó’s self declared interim presidency from last week and the EU’s Saturday ultimatum trying to force President Maduro to call elections within eight days.

Mr Maduro told the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti in Caracas that he is prepared to negotiate with the opposition in order to reach the best possible outcome ‘for the good of Venezuela’.

The opposition has asked supporters to take part in a two-hour peaceful protest on Wednesday.

Canadian serial killer pleads guilty to 8 murders

Bruce McArthur, a 67-year-old Canadian landscaper, has pleaded guilty to the murders of eight men who went missing between 2010-17.

Almost all of the victims had strong links to Toronto’s Gay Village neighbourhood.

Remains from many of the victims were found in plant pots on a property situated in Toronto’s Leaside neighbourhood.

Karen Fraser, one of the residents of the home where victims were recovered, told reporters outside the courthouse that she felt ‘violated’ by the man they knew for more than a decade.

Lead Homicide Detective David Dickinson said investigators are glad for the guilty plea, which will spare victims and families a trial.

Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine, has broken down in tears on the set of ‘Good Morning Britain’ over the realease of a new documetary.

He said: ‘We lost a lot, just leave us alone, leave him alone, let him rest. Please, let him rest. He deserves to rest.’

Wade Robson, who is involved in the controversial documentary claims that he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson alongside another victim, who has said the star staged a mock wedding at his ranch.

However, Michael’s brother Jermaine has called Wade’s testimony into question, saying while he denied any sexual abuse under oath at Michael’s trial, he also tried to sue the family after Michael’s death.

‘Leaving Neverland’ premiered at the Sundance Film festival and is set to air on Channel 4 this spring.
