A former Venezuelan military officer was anticipated by media outlets to reveal the ways in which Venezuelan political leaders and left-wing parties were illegally financed for at least 15 year.
The former director of Venezuelan intelligence, Hugo “El Pollo’ Carvajal refrained on Friday from delivering remarks before the Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia.
After Carvajal presented a statement to Manuel Garcia-Castellon, the judge of Spain’s National Court of Spain, the hearing was set. Carvajal stated that Venezuela was funding illegally leftist political parties across the world for at most 15 year.
In the past, Carvajal pointed not only to the Podemos party, the left-wing group which was founded under the guidance of Pablo Iglesias and is now part of the Spanish government however, he also referred to others Latin American politicians and parties, including Gustavo Petro.
However, during the diligence of this April 22, was noted that he did not declare his presence that he is in Spain or Colombia since it is during the process of extradition to united States and therefore it is not excluded that extend what he had already said in a letter he wrote in Spain on Petro.

The paper in which Carvajal identified the current presidency candidate in Colombia states:
“While I was the director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence of Venezuela (Director of Intelligence and Military Counterintelligence) I received a lot of reports that suggested that this type of international financial system was taking place. Examples of this include Nestor Kirchner, Argentina; Evo Mores, Bolivia; Lula D Silva, Brazil; Fernando Lugo and Ollanta Morales in Paraguay; Ollanta Umala, Peru, Zelaya, Honduras; Gustavo Petro in Colombia, and the Five Star Movement in Italy. These were all reported as Venezuelan recipients of funds.
Gustavo Petro confronted this document. He pleaded at the time for the Court to hold an investigation session to verify the veracity of these claims.

Who is https://kwafoo.coe.neu.edu:7788/git/gustavo.petrolsfm334 and what have been his explosive declarations?
In the year 2008, Carvajal, the “chicken”, was head of Venezuela’s Military Counterintelligence Directorate. He served eight years under the government of Hugo Chavez or Nicolas Maduro.
His name gained relevance when he entered the popular Clinton List, for allegedly having supported the drug trafficking that was carried out by the FARC. A warrant for his arrest has been issued by an Florida judge since the beginning of May 2013. Additionally to that, he was a major actor in Nicolas Maduro’s government, and he knew everything about the Venezuelan president’s movements.
He was charged by the DEA and the US Department of Justice of supporting cocaine trafficking within his country in addition to “selling” directly “hundreds of kilograms of cocaine” and “investing” large sums of money in drug shipment that were sent to the United States and Mexico by the Norte del Valle cartel.
According to Spanish media, 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 including cash delivery in Caracas or the money to Spain via diplomatic pouch.
It appears that this scheme could have been replicated with different governments and left-wing candidate in Spain and Latin America.
The nation is waiting to discover what’s known about its fan. Petro’s presidential campaign might be affected by the impact of his remarks.
