Patricia Janiot on Friday claimed she was the victim of "harassment" by the authorities at the Maiquetía International Airport in Venezuela as she was leaving the country, after the government revoked her press credentials to work in Venezuela.

"I was the subject of an incident of harassment. After the first check, I was asked twice to scan my shoe because it had some dark marks on the heel and they wanted to ascertain whether it was drugs or explosives," she said.

"The officer asked me my name and whether I was a journalist. He said he knew I was not carrying drugs but he had to do his job," said Janiot from CNN studios in Atlanta.

Janiot added that she does not know why she was banned from working in Venezuela, considering that work was precisely the reason for her visit.

She took the opportunity to make a public invitation to Minister of Communication Delcy Rodríguez to grant her an interview and extended the invitation to President Nicolás Maduro.
