M5s, money from Venezuela: investigation for money laundering and financing
Now they are no longer just rumors, but there is an investigation into the case of the money paid by Venezuela to Chavez al M5s. Money laundering and illegal party financing. These are the crime hypotheses on which the Milan prosecutor’s office is working which, already in June 2020, – reads the Press – opened a file to verify whether the nascent 5 Star Movement, in 2010, received three and a half million Venezuelan “slush funds”. And now he aims to question Hugo El Pollo Carvajal, the former head of the Venezuelan secret services arrested in Spain on a mandate from the United States, who has already confirmed to the Spanish judge the alleged illicit financing of Venezuela to various political movements. To mention the name of El Pollo to the Italian magistrates, who have been investigating in absolute silence for over a year, was Marcos Garcìa Rey, the ABC journalist who blew up the scandal last year, publishing an unpublished document of the services Venezuelan secrets.
According to the deed, Nicolas Maduro, Hugo Chavez’s foreign minister at the time, – continues the Press – had authorized the delivery, through the Venezuelan consul in Milan, Gian Carlo Di Martino, of a suitcase loaded with 3 , 5 million euros to the late Gianroberto Casaleggio, the «promoter of a revolutionary and anti-capitalist left movement in the Italian Republic». Rey has been denounced for defamation by Davide Casaleggio, who accuses him of having tarnished the name of his father, founder of the 5 Star Movement.
