159d713f Venezuela’s ex-spy chief arrested in Madrid on USA warrant

Spanish police on Friday arrested Hugo Carvajal, a former general and close ally of the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, on drug trafficking charges on an arrest warrant issued by the United States, a police spokeswoman said.

In February, Carvajal, who was also a member of Venezuela's Congress, became one of the most prominent politicians to turn against Maduro.

The Spanish High Court ruled today (Saturday) that Hugo Carvajal should remain in custody until a decision is reached on the extradition request.

He denies links to drug trafficking and plans to fight the USA extradition request on the grounds of having ties in Spain, where his family now resides.

He refused to be handed over to U.S. officials and argued that he now has family ties to Spain.

She would not disclose any details of the arrest or charges.

"No matter the rank or level of influence of an individual, we will continue to pursue and prosecute those who bring deadly drugs into this country in a US court of law", said prosecutor Geoffrey Berman, the US Attorney for the Southern District of NY.

His arrest has been long-sought by the U.S., as he has been privy to the inner-workings of the "Chavistas" for decades.

In 2014, Carvajal was detained at the request of the United States in Aruba, the Netherlands' island in the Caribbean, where he served as a Venezuelan consul general.

During the court hearing, Carvajal denied having links with Colombia's FARC and the drug trafficking charges, as well as challenged his potential extradition to the United States, a court spokesman said. Guaido was later recognized by the United States and dozens of governments, but Maduro remains in office with support of the military and has denounced Guaido as a US puppet.
