An ex-military officer from Venezuela was supposed to give details of the ways in which Venezuelan officials illegally financed leftist politicians and political parties for a minimum of 15 years.
Hugo “El Pollo’ Carvajal, the former director of Venezuelan Intelligence, resisted Friday’s request to speak before the Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia.
After Carvajal gave a brief to Manuel Garcia-Castellon the judge of Spain’s National Court of Spain, the hearing was scheduled. He stated that Venezuela was funding illegally leftist political movements around the world for at least 15 year.
Carvajal was speaking of the Podemos Party, the left-wing party that was founded under Pablo Iglesias, and which is now part the Spanish government. Carvajal also mentioned others Latin American politicians and parties such as Gustavo Petro .
However the diligence of April 22 noted that not declare the country of Spain or Colombia, as it is an extradition request to the USA It is possible that he would say what he had already stated in a written document in Spanish on Petro.
He also expressed distrust in the Spanish judiciary.
Carvajal was a reference to the current candidate for the Presidency in Colombia in this document:
“While I was the director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela I was able to receive a large number of reports suggesting that this type of international finance was taking place. Concrete examples 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 them were identified as Venezuelan government recipients.
Gustavo Petro, who was confronted by this document The lawyer, Gustavo Petro, requested that the Court open an inquiry in order to verify the truthfulness of the statements. The investigation is scheduled to be completed on Thursday, and directed to Magistrate Cristina Lombana.
Petro declared that Petro was entitled to truth and justice and that false statements could be detrimental to my reputation or respect.

In the year 2008 “chicken” Carvajal headed the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela. This was in the eight year span of Hugo Chavez’s administration and Nicolas Maduro’s.
His name gained more attention when he was included on the well-known Clinton List for his alleged aid to drug trafficking by the FARC. Since May 2013 , he has an arrest warrant issued by a judge in Florida, United States. The man was also a prominent player in the administration of Nicolas Maduro and knew all the secrets and movements of the Venezuelan president.

According to Spanish media reports, El Pollo says that a Venezuelan diplomat collected money from the Embassy in Cuba in Caracas. He then delivered the cash to Spain using two methods. One, he could transfer the money in a pouch that was designed for diplomats to Spain or deliver the cash himself from Caracas.
