Spanish police on Friday arrested Hugo Carvajal, a former head of Venezuelan military intelligence, who Washington believes has a “treasure trove” of details he is willing to share about Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
Carvajal, a former general and close ally of the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, was arrested on drug trafficking charges on a warrant issued by the United States, a police spokeswoman said.
“He is, I would dare to say, the most knowledgeable person to now be outside of Venezuela and be willing and able to cooperate with … a treasure trove of information,” the U.S. administration official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
“He will clearly be cooperating with us. He’s expressed that publicly,” the official said.
