Venezuela says appoints PDVSA CFO Zerpa as acting economy minister

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela said on Friday it had appointed Simon Zerpa, the finance boss of its state oil company PDVSA, as the OPEC member’s acting economy minister.

It was not immediately clear if Zerpa, who is sanctioned by the United States for alleged corruption, would remain as PDVSA’s chief financial officer.
