Hugo Carvajal is who? And what are his shocking remarks?
For eight years, the ‘chicken’ Carvajal was the head of the Military Counterintelligence Directorate of Venezuela for eight years during the governments of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro.
His name was made more famous following his inclusion on the popular Clinton List for his alleged support of drug trafficking by the FARC. He has been detained by a Florida judge since May 2013. In addition, he became an important figure in the government of Nicolas Maduro, he even knew the entire movement and secrets of the Venezuelan president.
He was accused by the DEA, the US Department of Justice with helping to facilitate cocaine trafficking in his home country.
According to Spanish media, El Pollo tells that the Venezuelan emissary obtained the money from the Embassy of Cuba in Caracas. The brief was presented to the justice department of that nation.
It seems that the scheme was replicated by several government officials in Spain and Latin America, as well as with left-leaning candidates.
The nation is still waiting to see what the future holds after it has turned on its fan. Petro’s presidential campaign might be shaken by his remarks.
