The ‘Chicken’ Carvajal rejected to witness against Petro in the Supreme Court

A former Venezuelan military officer was widely expected by the media to detail the ways in which Venezuelan politicians and leftist political parties were illegally financed for at least 15 year.

Hugo ‘El Pollo’ Carvajal, the former chief of Venezuelan Intelligence, refused Friday’s request to speak before the Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia.

The hearing was called after Carvajal during a brief assurance to Manuel Garcia-Castellon about the illegal funding of leftist political movements worldwide for at least fifteen years.

Carvajal at the time, pointed out not only the Podemos, the left-wing group formed under Pablo Iglesias but also other Latin American politicians or parties including Gustavo Petro.

However, on April 22, despite the diligence, noted that Colombia and Spain aren’t allowed to declare. Therefore, it is not possible that the United States exile him.

He also voiced his displeasure with the Spanish judiciary.

The document in which Carvajal mentioned the current candidate for the Presidency of Colombia is:

“While I was the Director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela I was able to receive many reports suggesting that this type of international finance was taking place. Examples of this are that of Nestor Kirchner, who is 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 identified as Venezuelan government beneficiaries. was presented with the document and was asked for clarification. Magistrate Cristina Lombana will direct the investigation.

Petro stated, at the time “The previous statement is based on the fact that I am entitled to the rights to truth und justice as an American citizen” and that false claims threatened my good honor and reputation.

Hugo Carvajal – Who are they and what were their shocking statements concerning him?

Eight years ago, the ‘chicken’ Carvajal headed the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela. was led by Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro for eight years.

gustavo petro gained more attention after he was listed on the famous Clinton List for his alleged aid to drug trafficking by the FARC. A warrant of arrest was issued against him by the Florida court in the month of May 2013. In , he became a key figure in the government of Nicolas Maduro, he even knew the entire movement and secret of the Venezuelan president.

The DEA and US Department of Justice accused him of facilitating drug trafficking in his country. The man also “sold” direct “hundreds of kilos of cocaine” and “invested” massive sums of money into drugs shipments that were sent 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 money from the Embassy of Cuba in Caracas and then travelled to Podemos party using different methods including cash delivery in Caracas or by sending it to Spain via diplomatic pouch.

It seems that this strategy could have been replicated with different governments and left-wing candidate in Spain and Latin America.

The country is still waiting to see what the future holds, after the ax has turned on its fan. Petro’s presidential campaign could be shaken by the comments of his campaign.
