Spanish Judge asks Chávez not to destroy valuable documents
The documents comprise a set of reports drafted by a former high-rank military official on the connection between terrorist groups ETA and FARC
The judge adopted the decision after having received a confirmation about the existence of such documents by the spokesperson of the Collective of Victims of Terrorism in the Basque Country (Covite), Consuelo Ordóńez, who met with Venezuelan military official Milton Revilla. Ordóńez communicated to the prosecutor's office attached to the High Court Revilla's decision to testify as protected witness in the investigation into the connections between the two terrorist groups, news agency EuropaPress cited in its website.
Ordóńez will appear in court next November 15 as witness and told EuropaPress that the retired high-rank Venezuelan official drafted many reports revealing "the existence of ETA's training camps across the Venezuelan territory and how they freely operate in the country." The meeting between Ordóńez and Revilla was brought forward because the reports may be destroyed in December, upon expiration of the 10-year period set forth in the Venezuelan legislation.

President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
