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

Spanish High Court Judge Eloy Velasco has sent a letter rogatory to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez requesting him not to destroy the reports compiled by a Venezuelan military official on the relations between Spanish terrorist group ETA and Colombian terrorist group FARC, as well as training courses allegedly provided in Venezuela to several members of the Spanish terrorist group, particularly Arturo Cubillas Fontán, leader of deported ETA members, judicial sources informed. 

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 Ordóñez, who met with Venezuelan military official Milton Revilla. Ordóñez 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.

Ordóñez 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 Ordóñez 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.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
