In that same document, the Venezuelan military denounced a network of illegal financing of Chavismo “to left-wing political movements in the world for at least 15 years” and to Podemos, revelations for which Judge García-Castellón finally reopened an investigation into the left party.
Carvajal was arrested in April 2019 in Spain – where he arrived that same year after abandoning the “Bolivarian revolution.” and join the cause of the “president in charge” Juan Guaidó- for the extradition request of the United States.
