Carvajal as Deputy of the National Assembly
Hugo Armando Carvajal Barrios, nicknamed El Pollo ("The Chicken")[1] (born 1960), is a Venezuelan diplomat and retired general. He was the head of the military intelligence in Venezuela during Hugo Chávez's government, from July 2004 to December 2011.[2] Carvajal was arrested in Spain on 12 April 2019 based on an arrest warrant from the United States for 2011 drug trafficking charges; the U.S. asked Spain to extradite Carvajal.[3][4]

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Hugo Armando Carvajal Barrios was born on April 1, 1960 in Viento Fresco, a village close to Caicara de Maturín, in state of Monagas (Eastern Llanos)[citation needed], or in Anzoátegui state.[2] He finished his studies at the military academy in 1981.[2] His sister, Wilma Carvajal, is the Mayor of the Cedeño Municipality.[5]

Career[edit]

Carvajal met Hugo Chávez in 1980 at the military academy of Caracas, where Chávez was his instructor.[6] Carvajal took part in the 1992 coup attempt organised by Chávez against the government of Carlos Andrés Pérez.[2] He was detained together with Chávez and he was set free with a general amnesty that president Rafael Caldera introduced in 1994.[citation needed]
In September 2008, the United States Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) accused Carvajal of helping Colombian guerrilla FARC in its drug trafficking activities by protecting them from drugs seizures, supplying arms and providing with Venezuelan official documents.[7] He was placed on the list together with Henry Rangel Silva, Director of Venezuela's Directorate of Intelligence and Prevention Services, who later became Minister of Defense and Governor of Trujillo and with Ramón Rodríguez Chacín, former Minister of the Interior & Security.[7]
Carvajal was appointed head of the National Official against Organized Crime and Financing of Terrorism in October 2012. In April 2013 he was appointed as the replacement for Wilfredo Figueroa Chacín as head of the Military Counterintelligence.[2]

Arrest[edit]

Venezuela appointed Carvajal as its consul in Aruba in January 2014, however he had not been officially accepted by the Dutch government.[6][8] He was arrested in Aruba on 22 July 2014 on a U.S. arrest warrant.[9] Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro protested saying Carvajal had diplomatic immunity.[6] As a protest Venezuela closed its airspace to planes coming from Aruba and Curaçao for several hours, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. Maduro also threatened to slow down business at the Isla oil refinery on Curaçao.[10] On July 28, he was released and flown back to Venezuela by private plane. Aruba officials declared that Dutch foreign minister Frans Timmermans had decided to recognize Carvajal's immunity. The Netherlands declared Carvajal persona non grata.[1] In a public appearance Maduro stated: "We had a plan to escalate tension in Latin America".[10]
One day after his release information was released that Venezuela had sent four military ships close to the shores of Aruba while Carvajal was detained.[10] The United States Department of State said that it had evidence for severe threats by Venezuela against both Aruba and the Netherlands.[10] The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it had contact with Venezuela about the military ships, with Venezuela stating that they were returning from an exercise. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affair also stated that Carvajal was released after strictly judicial considerations based on international law.[10]
Carvajal is also wanted by Colombia for the torture and murder of two agents.[1]

Support for Guaidó[edit]

On 21 February 2019, during the 2019 Venezuelan presidential crisis, Carvajal made a video in support of Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela and criticized Nicolás Maduro regime. Carvajal calls for Venezuelan military forces to break ranks and to allow the shipping of humanitarian aid to Venezuela.[11][12]
Maduro expelled Carvajal from the Armed Forces on 4 April, degraded his Major General status, and accused him of treason.[13]

Spain's high court rules against extraditing Venezuelan ex-general

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain’s High Court ruled on Monday that the government should refuse a request from the United States to extradite Venezuela’s former military intelligence chief.
Former general Hugo Carvajal was arrested on drug trafficking charges by Spanish police in April at the request of Washington, which says it believes he will share incriminating information about Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro.
The court said the ex-spy chief would be freed from jail, where he has been held pending the extradition process, but did not say when he would be released.
The Spanish government has the final say on extraditions, but it tends to follow the court’s rulings.
Carvajal was an ally of Venezuela’s late Socialist leader Hugo Chavez and has turned against Maduro, who succeeded Chavez. He has denied accusations he helped Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebels smuggle cocaine to the United States.
During the extradition hearing last week, he said Washington was fabricating the charges, raising doubts about whether he will cooperate in future with the United States.
The court ruled against the extradition despite the state prosecutor’s recommendation that the request be satisfied. It will explain its reasoning on Tuesday.

U.S. officials see our commitment, Puerto Rico governor says – Caribbean Business

SAN JUAN — In her third day of meetings with federal officials and members of Congress in while in Washington, D.C. , Gov. Wanda Vázquez continued to discuss issues related to the disbursement of funds for Puerto Rico’s economic development and the island’s slow recovery after hurricanes Irma and Maria struck two years ago.
The governor had meetings scheduled Wednesday with Reps. José Serrano (D-N.Y.), Darren Soto (D-Fla.), Nydia Velázquez (D-N.Y.) and the ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, Rob Bishop (R-Utah), according to an agenda sent to Caribbean Business. 
In her meeting with Serrano, Vázquez was accompanied by the executive director of the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration, Jennifer Storipan; La Fortaleza Public Policy Secretary Philippe Mesa; COR3 Executive Director Ottmar Chávez; the executive director of the Puerto Rico Fiscal Agency and Financial Advisory Authority, Omar Marrero; her representative to the Puerto Rico Financial Oversight and Management Board, Eli Díaz; and Puerto Rico Housing Secretary Fernando Gil. Several other officials have accompanied Vázquez during her first official trip to Washington, D.C.
Several pressing issues were discussed with members of Congress, including the island’s recovery plan, the fragile electrical system, Puerto Rico’s admission as a state, Medicaid funds and the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management & Stability Act (Promesa). 
On Thursday, the governor is slated to meet with Reps. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), Greg Walden (R-Ore.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Ark.), as well as with Federal Emergency Management Agency officials.
According to the governor’s office, Vázquez spoke Tuesday with Ross Vought, deputy director of White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and they discussed recovery and reconstruction plans, and Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico.
“We are working hard to reestablish trust,” Vázquez said in a statement. “Today [Tuesday] was a fruitful day of meetings because we touched on important topics for Puerto Rico’s reconstruction. We met with the Department of Energy, the OMB, with President Trump’s special adviser, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Treasury officials, among others. The recognition and openness of the officials was comforting. Their response was of total support for the people of Puerto Rico, given that their positions have changed, seeing the commitment to transparency, teamwork and the effort we are making for the wellbeing of all Puerto Ricans.”
Housing Secretary Gil said the meetings have been very productive and that Puerto Rican officials have been able to give their stateside counterparts details about the actions taken during the reconstruction process, as well as how the resources received have been used.
“During the meetings, we demonstrated the prevailing need to prioritize the disbursement of the rest of the funds already allocated to successfully continue the reconstruction,” Gil said.
House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Raul Grijalva announced Wednesday that he would be flying to Puerto Rico and meet with Vázquez, Monday at La Fortaleza. He will also meet with the leaders of the the Legislative Assembly.
“In addition to those meetings, Grijalva’s upcoming trip to Puerto Rico will include visits to San Juan, Loíza, Guayama, Adjuntas, and Vieques,” reads a statement issued by his office. “Grijalva will hold a series of meetings with local leaders to discuss the pace of reconstruction across the island and gather information on coastal erosion, coal emissions and other environmental issues.”
Grijalva’s visit follows a trip and listening session by committee members in March. When announcing the visit back in March, the chairman said he considered Puerto Rico “an agenda item of vast importance to the Natural Resources Committee, and consequently to the United States Congress.”
