At 11:00 o’clock in the morning of July 5, 2010, being present at the Helicoide facilities, holding an interview with citizen Mr. Francisco Antonio Chávez Abarca, upon having exchanged different points of views on the situation in connection with him, he declared to me that he did not want to leave Venezuela and that if I could avoid him being sent to Cuba, he would cooperate.
Consequently, I told him that that was not so easy, that I could not compromise myself, but that if he would provide me in this moment with some information, I would process it, and depending on the results thereof, I would deliver them to the Superiors and request them to send said results to the Judge in charge of his cause, and that I would certify in detail his cooperation in the dismantling of this organization, should the case be they are in Venezuela, and then he would only depend on the Judge’s results and assessment in order to lighten his sentence for delation, facts admission and impeding them to commit further crimes.
He then told me: “I met in Honduras before the coup to Zelaya and thereafter in Micheletti’s government, a Venezuelan, a short person named Alejandro Peña Esclusa, and in those occasions he told me that he was interested in hiring me for carrying out some jobs in Venezuela. Short thereafter, being myself in Guatemala, I was contacted by Daniel who told me he had come on behalf of Alejandro Peña and provided me with some data that allowed me to learn that he was talking about Alejandro Peña Esclusa, the Venezuelan I had known in Honduras.
Thereupon, Daniel told me that Alejandro needed me in Venezuela to perform disturbances and to sabotage the elections in Venezuela in the manner and fashion it had to be done; Daniel told me that if I was willing to accept the job and reach a satisfactory understanding, I would receive a great amount of money, and since I was indeed looking for a job, I accepted the proposal and said yes to it, and Daniel helped me and financed everything I needed to travel to Venezuela, and consequently, I went there the first day of July with the instructions to go to the ‘El Caney del Chivo’, in Maiquetía, Venezuela, and once there, wait for Alejandro who would personally come to provide me with the rest of the logistic in order to start developing the work plan.
And so I did, but unfortunately I was caught at the Venezuelan Airport and could not make it to the ‘El Caney del Chivo’, and though I told my captors that I was willing to cooperate, that they take me to el ‘El Caney del Chivo’ so that I was released and they could catch that Venezuelan who tempted me over here, and at that moment I thought perhaps was he himself who had turned me to the authorities, and that if he was caught, I would love to see his face again; he is white, short about 50 years old or more, and told me he was a military, thin, gray hair, and gave me a phone number he had notated on a bill but that I lost, and only remember it was a number ending in 81 63, and that he lived in Caracas. It was all.
