 The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions against Venezuela's military counterintelligence agency following the death of a navy captain after a week in its custody.

The U.S. Treasury said it would freeze all assets directly or indirectly owned by the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (DGCIM).

President Nicolas Maduro's government confirmed the death on June 29 of Rafael Acosta, who was arrested eight days earlier for alleged participation in a coup plot.

Human rights organizations, political leaders and his family have accused the government of torturing Acosta to death.

"The politically motivated arrest and tragic death of Captain Rafael Acosta was unwarranted and unacceptable," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
