Cliver Antonio Alcalá Cordones, Retired Army Major General, acknowledged having provided grenade launchers to Colombian rebel leaders Ivan Marquez, leader of the Segunda Marquetalia (FARC dissidents) and Timochenko “by order of the government of Hugo Chávez”.

This was reported, this Thursday, July 6, by the journalist Joshua Goodman from the agency The Associated Press (AP) on his Twitter account.

The reporter noted that Alcalá Cordones’ statements were issued at the guilty plea hearing held last week in New York, United States.

On June 30, US federal prosecutors dropped narcoterrorism charges against Major General Clíver Alcala Cordones, extradited from Colombia to that country in mid-2020 after leading an effort to oust Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

The military pleaded guilty to misdemeanor aiding a foreign terrorist organization, according to journalist Joshua Goodman. Lawyer César de Castro said that “under the original charges for which he has been detained for more than three years since his voluntary surrender, he faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 50 years in prison if convicted. He now he does not face a mandatory minimum ».
