Two workers at Venezuela’s central bank were arrested on Friday after meeting opposition leader Juan Guaido, who has called on public officials to disavow President Nicolas Maduro, according to the employees’ lawyer and a source familiar with the matter.

The attorney, Alonso Medina Roa, said the two employees – Deny Albujar and Manuel Alberto Guisseppe – had also recently taken part in protests demanding better working conditions.

According to Roa, they have not yet appeared in court and the charges against them are unknown.
