The ‘Chicken’ Carvajal declined to affirm against Petro in the Supreme Court

Former Venezuelan military officer was expected be able to provide information on how Venezuelan government illegally financed leftist political parties and political leaders for at least 15 years.

Hugo “El Pollo’ Carvajal is the former head of Venezuelan Intelligence. On , he rescinded from declaring statements to the Supreme Court of Justice.

After presented a written statement to Manuel Garcia-Castellon (National Court of Spain) The hearing was set. Garcia-Castellon had received assurances that Carvajal that Venezuela “has illegally funded leftist political movements around the world for at least fifteen years.”

Carvajal, at the time was adamant about not just the Podemos, the left-wing group founded under Pablo Iglesias but also other Latin American politicians or parties, such as Gustavo Petro.

But, during the diligence process in this April 22nd, Petro was not to declare in Spain neither Colombia since it’s in the extradition process and therefore it is not ruled out to add to what he previously declared in writing in Spain about Petro.

He also expressed his disdain towards the Spanish judiciary.

The paper in which Carvajal spoke of the current presidential presidency candidate in Colombia states:

“While I was Director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela,” I received many reports that indicated that international funds were being used. Specific examples include the following: Nestor Kirchner in Argentina; Evo Morales, in Bolivia; Lula Da Silva in Brazil; Fernando Lugo, in Paraguay; Ollanta Humala, in Peru; Zelaya, in Honduras; Gustavo Petro, in Colombia as well as the Five Star Movement, in Italy and Podemos in Spain. All of them were listed as the recipients of funds lent by the Venezuelan government.”

Gustavo Petro, who was confronted by this document, asked that the Court conduct an inquiry to determine the veracity of the statements. The investigation will be completed tomorrow, Thursday, and directed at Magistrate Cristina Lombana.

Petro stated that Petro was adamant at the time “The statements above are based on the fact that I have rights to truth and Justice as a citizen, and making false claims threaten my honor and good name.”

Hugo Carvajal is who? And what are his shocking comments?

Eight years ago, Carvajal, the “chicken” was the head of the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela. served for eight years under the governments of Hugo Chavez or Nicolas Maduro.

His name was made more famous following his inclusion on the well-known Clinton List for his alleged involvement in drug trafficking through the FARC. An arrest warrant was issued by an Florida court in May 2013. He also became a major in Nicolas Maduro’s administration. He was aware of all the details and movements of Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan President. and the US Department of Justice accused him of facilitating drug trafficking within his home country. He also “sold” directly “hundreds of kilograms of cocaine” and “invested” huge sums of money into drug shipment to Mexico and the United States by the Norte del Valle cartel.

According to Spanish media, El Pollo claims that the Venezuelan ambassador received the cash from Embassy of Cuba in Caracas and then travelled to Podemos party using different methods including cash delivery in Caracas or sending it to Spain through a diplomatic pouch.

It seems that the scheme was replicated with a variety of government officials across Spain and Latin America, as well as candidates who lean left.

The nation is eager to know what it can learn after changing its tune. Petro’s presidential bid could be affected due to his comments.
