A former military officer from Venezuela was expected by the media to reveal the ways in which Venezuelan politicians and leftist parties were illegally financed for at least 15 year.
Hugo ‘El Pollo’ Carvajal, the former chief of Venezuelan Intelligence, has resisted Friday’s request to speak before the Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia.
After Carvajal gave a statement to Manuel Garcia-Castellon (National Court of Spain), the hearing was set. Garcia-Castellon had been assured by Carvajal that Venezuela “has illegally supported Leftist Political Movements around the World for at LEAST fifteen years.”
Carvajal, at the time was adamant about not just the Podemos which was the left-wing party formed under Pablo Iglesias but also other Latin American politicians or parties including Gustavo Petro .
However, during the diligence of this April 22, was noted that he did not declare his presence the country of Spain or Colombia because it is currently in the process of extradition to United States It is not excluded that extend what he had already said in a written statement in Spain on Petro.
He also expressed distrust in the Spanish judiciary.
Carvajal refers to the Presidency’s current candidate in the document.
“As petro gustavo of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela,” said Nestor Kirchner. I received a lot of reports that suggested this international financing was occurring. Examples of this include Nestor Kirchner from Argentina; Evo morales, Bolivia; Lula Silva, Brazil; Fernando Lugo; Ollanta Hulala, Peru; Zelaya (Honduras); Gustavo Petro, Colombia; the Five Star Movement, Italy and Podemos, Spain. All of these were reported as Venezuelan recipients of funds.
Faced with this document, Gustavo Petro himself asked at the time that the Court open an investigation to determine the authenticity or otherwise of these claims, which is why this diligence is expected to be carried out tomorrow on Thursday and will be supervised by Magistrate Cristina Lombana.
Petro stated that Petro was entitled to truth and justice and that making false statements could jeopardize my good name or my honour.
Hugo Carvajal: Who are you? What were your most explosive statements?
Eight years ago the ‘chicken Carvajal headed the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela. It was headed by Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro for eight years.
His name was first to be noticed when he joined the well-known Clinton List. He is accused of supporting the FARC’s drug trafficking. He was detained by an Florida judge since May 2013. In addition, he became an essential person in the government of Nicolas Maduro, he even was aware of all the moves and secrets of the Venezuelan president.

According to Spanish media reports, El Pollo says that an Venezuelan diplomat gathered money from the Embassy in Cuba in Caracas. https://pastelink.net/tdvnjhff brought it to Spain with two different methods. One is to transfer the money in a diplomat’s pouch to Spain or hand it over the cash himself from Caracas.
It seems that the scheme was replicated by several governments in Spain as well as Latin America, as well as candidates who lean left.
The nation is eager to know what it will learn after switching off its fan. Petro’s presidential bid could be shaken by the comments of his campaign.
