MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — Venezuela's Attorney General Luisa Ortega Diaz was removed from office by the decision of the country's Constituent Assembly on Saturday.

The decision was taken unanimously by the members of the assembly during the authority's first session after the election of the delegates to the assembly on July 30, the Venezuelan state-run TV broadcast showed.

The Constituent Assembly replaced Ortega Diaz, known for her disagreement with the actions of the country's executive, with Venezuela's Human Rights Ombudsman Tarek William Saab.
