Former head of Venezuela’s Counterintelligence Hugo The chicken Carvajal has given the judge of the National Court Manuel García-Castellón new documents on the relationship between Podemos and the Venezuelan regime. They reveal payments of 6.7 million dollars, signed by Hugo Chávez himself and destined for the CEPS Foundation, directly linked to Pablo Iglesias and Juan Carlos Monedero. In Caracas they were openly considered «Natural allies of the Bolivarian revolution».
These new evidence were delivered to the Central Court of Instruction number 6 in a sealed envelope last Thursday afternoon. They join those already presented days ago about former judge Baltasar Garzón.
Between what was delivered by The chicken Carvajal contains the original document, signed in hand by Hugo Chávez in 2008, in which the then president of Venezuela ordered the payment of 6.7 million dollars (5.7 million euros) to the CEPS Foundation for “propitiate [en España] a political change even more akin to the Bolivarian Government.
The document expressly cites Pablo Iglesias, Juan Carlos Monedero and Jorge Verstrynge as “natural allies of the Bolivarian revolution.” In addition, it shows that the leaders of the purple party not only advised the Venezuelan president through their CEPS Foundation, but also dictated the contents of his television program There, President and they sang the glories to him in their audiovisual spaces in Spain as La Tuerka O Fort Apache that were emitted through the newspaper of Jaume Roures.
The money was used to finance their activities, grow their political formation, organize their structures, finance their cadres and launch their campaigns. This is how the letter details it: «With the MPP for communication –a category for which a good part of the money would be destined–, presentations and interviews have been scheduled to accompany this effort. VTV and Telesur to prominent teachers such as Juan Carlos Monedero, Jorge Verstrynge and Pablo Iglesias who represent an advanced revolutionary school of thought, natural allies of the Bolivarian revolution.
Chávez ordered that this amount be paid to the CEPS Foundation in several annuities in payment for its “advisory” work to the Venezuelan Government: $ 2,492,557 in 2008 and another $ 4,273,300 between 2009 and 2011. It so happens that the years of maximum presence of Churches in CEPS were the years 2008 and 2009.
These documents were advanced by OKDIARIO in 2016. But the military Carvajal has now delivered to the judge the original counting point, which is what such a hiring order is called, which adds the letterheads of the Bolivarian Government of Venezuela and the Ministry of Popular Power for Finance. Sources consulted by this newspaper explain that, up to now, the Spanish Police have investigated these allegedly fraudulent operations, but only worked with copies of the documents. The non-existent cooperation with the Venezuelan dictatorship systematically prevented the proceedings from continuing. By not being able to verify the veracity of these copies, the investigations were blocked. Until now, that the revelation of The chicken takes the case to a new stage and gives new impetus to the investigation.
The hiring order provided by The chicken Carvajal is signed by the former Minister of Finance of Venezuela Rafael Isea that together with President Chávez approved the diversion of 6.7 million dollars for CEPS. After the death of Hugo Chávez, in April 2013, Isea assumed the presidency of Banco Alba (in which several countries of the Bolivarian orbit were integrated). But he soon fell out of favor with the government of Nicolás Maduro and was removed from office three months later.
In September 2013, he hastily left Venezuela after reaching a pact with the US anti-drug agency, the DEA, which picked him up on an official plane in Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, to take him to Washington with his family.
the dome of we can
Over the last few years, Pablo Iglesias, Juan Carlos Monedero, Íñigo Errejón, Carolina Bescansa, Sergio Pascual, Luis Alegre and Alberto Montero have been part of the board of trustees of this Foundation. If the amounts received since 2002 are added, the Foundation would have received more than 7 million euros from the Chavista regime. And yet, in his official accounts he only declared that he had received 3.7 million euros from the Venezuelan government in the same period.
We should also add the money that the podemita foundation received from other Latin American countries, such as Ecuador. The Government of Rafael Correa added 1.27 million euros to the CEPS Foundation between 2007 and 2013. Therefore, either part of the money was left by the wayside, or it was channeled through other channels to make it reach the future leaders of Podemos. , or the CEPS Foundation only officially declared part of the aid received from Venezuela.
The former head of the Venezuelan Intelligence has also delivered other evidence that confirms that the oil money served to buy consciences and convert more than a dozen professors from various Spanish universities into people at the service of the Chavista regime. The same professors who controlled the hard core of the Podemos management during its launch.
The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, signed an order in October 2013 to pay another $ 142,000 to three members of Podemos: Carolina Bescansa, Jorge Lago and Ariel Jerez. The three recipients of this sum are identified in the document as “sociologists and activists of the 15M / Indignados movement” in the payment order signed by Maduro on October 16, 2013: three months before the foundation of Podemos.
According to the document to which OKDIARIO has had access, the objective of the contract was to develop the «political communicational design of audiovisual material» for the stand of the state company Petróleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA) at the XXI World Petroleum Congress held in June 2014 in Moscow.
“United in the fight!”
This second document delivered by Carvajal is a hiring order to the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, in which Nicolás Maduro approves a total expenditure of $ 532,520 to finance the presence of the state oil company PDVSA at the Moscow international oil summit, according to a budget presented by the Caracas-based company VIU Comunicación.
Of this amount, $ 142,000 was to go to the three leaders of Podemos quoted and another 280,520 dollars to the design and material execution of the PDVSA stand. The “point of account” was drawn up at the proposal of the Minister of Popular Power for Oil and Mining, Rafael Ramírez Carreño.
Next to his signature, the signature of Nicolás Maduro appears at the bottom of the second page. In the “President’s comments” section, just four words with an energetic stroke: “United in the fight!”. On the same page, it is indicated that the payment order has been “approved” by the President of the Executive Branch and regarding the “proposed communicational treatment” the “do not disclose” box is marked. This document was published exclusively by OKDIARIO, but The chicken Carvajal has delivered the original paper to the magistrate of the National Court.
The link between Venezuela’s oil – whose millionaire income Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro used to export the Bolivarian revolution beyond their borders – and the financing of Podemos leaders has never been so evident. Now García-Castellón must decide whether to investigate these alleged irregularities.
