A former Venezuelan military officer was expected by media outlets to reveal the ways in which Venezuelan politicians and leftist political parties were illegally funded for at least 15 years.
Hugo “El Pollo’ Carvajal, the former head of Venezuelan Intelligence, refused Friday’s request to speak before the Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia.
After Carvajal delivered a written statement to Manuel Garcia-Castellon who is the judge of Spain’s National Court of Spain, the hearing was set. Carvajal stated that Venezuela was funding illegally leftist political movements around the world for at least 15 year.
At the time, Carvajal pointed not only at the Podemos party the left-wing political group that was born under the direction of Pablo Iglesias and is now part of the Spanish government as well as others Latin American politicians and parties that include Gustavo Petro.
However the diligence of April 22 noted that it was not possible to declare the case to Spain or Colombia, as it is for extradition to the United States It is possible that he might say the things he’s already said in a Spanish writing about Petro.
He also voiced his displeasure with the Spanish judiciary.
Carvajal mentions the current presidential candidate in the document.
“As director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela,” said Nestor Kirchner. I was able to get a variety of reports that suggested that 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 money.
Gustavo Petro asked the Court to initiate an inquiry into the authenticity of the claims.
Petro said that Petro had stated at the time “The above is based on the fact that I have a right to truth and Justice as a citizen, and making false statements threatens my honor and good name.”
Hugo Carvajal, who are you? What were his outrageous statements to the world?
In the span of eight years “chicken” Carvajal was the head of the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela for eight years in the administrations of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro.
His name became more prominent following his inclusion on the popular Clinton List for his alleged support of drug trafficking by the FARC. Since May 2013 he had an arrest warrant issued by a judge in Florida, United States. In addition the fact that he was an important player in Nicolas Maduro’s government, and he knew all the details about the Venezuelan president’s movements.
The DEA and the US Department of Justice charged the man with aiding in the trafficking of cocaine in his country.
According to gustavo petro , El Pollo claims that the Venezuelan emissary received the money from Embassy of Cuba in Caracas and later arrived at Podemos gathering using various methods such as cash delivery in Caracas or by the money to Spain through a diplomatic pouch.
It seems that this scheme could be repeated many times with different governments and left-wing candidates in Spain as well as Latin America.
At present, the nation awaits what will be revealed when the fan is turned on. gustavo petro , Petro’s comments could be a major blow to Petro’s campaign for president.
