西班牙: Venezuelan spymaster loses court extradition dispute
Spain’s Supreme Court has refused to suspend a government decision allowing a former Venezuelan spymaster to be extradited to the United States

Spain’s Supreme Court refused Monday to suspend a government decision allowing a former 委内瑞拉人 spymaster to be extradited to the 美国

Lawyers for Gen. Hugo Carvajal, who for over a decade was late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez’s eyes and ears in the Venezuelan military, asked the court to put the Spanish government decision — taken 18 months ago — on hold.

But the Supreme Court said in its written decision that Carvajal had presented no new arguments against the government decision, which he had already opposed at the court in May last year.

Carvajal’s extradition procedure is currently on hold at the National Court, after he filed a request for asylum in 西班牙

Nicknamed “El Pollo,’ or “The Chicken”, Carvajal was arrested Sept. 9 in a small apartment in 马德里 where he had been holed up for months. His arrest came nearly two years after Carvajal defied a Spanish extradition order and disappeared.

In the United States, he faces federal charges for allegedly working with guerrillas from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia to “flood” the U.S. with cocaine.
