EUROPA PRESS / NATIONAL POLICE
The National Police has arrested the former Venezuelan general Hugo Carvajal, known as the Chicken Carvajal, who was a fugitive from Justice and wanted for his extradition to the United States.
As reported by the National Police, Carvajal lived “totally cloistered, without going outside or looking out the window, and always protected by trusted people.”
The former head of the Venezuelan secret services of the Hugo Chávez regime was internationally claimed by the United States for a crime of drug trafficking and was initially arrested in 2019. After being brought to justice, he was provisionally released and escaped in the moment he learned that the delivery to the US was going to materialize.
The arrest was carried out at 9:15 p.m. this Thursday by Group II of Fugitives from UDYCO Central, in a joint operation with the DEA, according to police sources informed Europa Press. The fugitive was hiding in Torrelaguna street in Madrid.
The entry into the building where Hugo Armando Carvajal Barrios was hiding was carried out by judicial authorization, with the collaboration of the Police Intervention Unit (UIP) to proceed with the order.
Currently, the detainee had a valid arrest warrant and imprisonment for the execution of the extradition issued by the third section of the National Court
Extradition approved by the Council of Ministers
In March 2020, the Council of Ministers approved the delivery to the United States of the former Venezuelan general to be tried for the alleged crimes of drug trafficking and arms trafficking. The Executive’s decision was made despite the fact that he had been unaccounted for since November 2019, when the National Court had already decided on his delivery.
Whoever was head of the Directorate of Military Counterintelligence of
Venezuela for eight years in the governments of Hugo Chávez and
Nicolás Maduro is claimed by the US for events that occurred between 1999 and 2019, “when he allegedly belonged to the so-called Cartel of the Suns, dedicated to the transport of drug shipments.”
