According to the president of the Venezuelan parliament; The former deputy Guaidó had links with Biaggio Benito Garofalo for more than 7 years.
The president of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Jorge Rodríguez, presented this Friday, March 18, 2022, fresh evidence linking former deputy Juan Guaidó with drug trafficking and terrorist groups.
Jorge Rodríguez, in a press conference, showed photographs, videos, conversations, and posts on social media to argue the close links between drug trafficker Biaggio Benito Garofalo and Venezuelan opponents, including Juan Guaidó, Ismael García, and Henrique Capriles.
The president of the Venezuelan parliament showed a public sentence of the Supreme Court of Justice declared in October 2015, where Biaggio Benito Garofalo is charged with an extradition request and an arrest warrant is supported to be prosecuted before the Provincial Court of Spain for the drug trafficking crime.
Likewise, he showed a letter from 2016 issued by the Voluntad Popular terrorist group and signed by Juan Guaidó, in which Garofalo is appointed municipal coordinator of Anaco, Anzoátegui State.
Similarly, he denounced the link between former deputy Marco Aurelio Quiñones and leaders of drug trafficking and terrorism through visual evidence and conversations on WhatsApp. In this sense, he affirmed that: “You cannot say Quiñones, that you were not united by deep emotional ties with Garofalo, because these are a few screenshots that we are presenting.”
At the same time, he assured that the Colombian government of Iván Duque is also linked to the Venezuelan opposition and to the narco-paramilitary group called “Los Rastrojos”. He, in turn, expressed that the Colombian territory served as a training ground for the landing in Macuto.
Regarding the question of the possible inclusion of Guaidó in the dialogue process carried out by the Venezuelan government with the opposition, Rodríguez stated that: “We don’t meet with drug traffickers. We put drug traffickers in jail.”
