Screenshots taken from Freddy Guevara’s phone regarding the setting “Caracas party” up (code name for terrorist acts), reveal Leopoldo López’s decision to took the violence way from Madrid and they would hire “ thugs ”of Cota 905 (popular neighborhood of Caracas).
In one of the footage you can see Leopoldo López explains to the former mayor of Chacao, Emilio Graterón, that the dollars for toys’s payment (weapons) are matching him with Luis Somaza, direct assistant to Juan Guaidó, the ” self-proclaimed ”president in 2019.
Grateron, in another conversation, asked Somaza how the dollars were going, and he replied that it’s difficult to have them physically and asks him for a few days to give him an answer.
He adds that he should comment to the “president” and let hem know, making it clear that Juan Guaidó was directly involved.
Most of the messages around money’s delivery, controlled by financiers abroad, to operators in Caracas. When Gilber Caro asks they assure him that Somaza is running with it and they explain that now it would be Yon Goicoechea who is going to share “the sweets”.
This’s what the former Chacao’s mayor, Emilio Grateron, told Caro, when he warned him that the money issue should be resolved quickly because there was concern about it.
But Alfredo Jimeno is clearer and in another exchange he confesses to Caro that the thugs “want samples of FAITH, $$$”
At this point, Jimeno (who is part of López’s intimate environment) is very explicit and reveals to his interlocutor that without the violence by the criminals of Cota 905, La Vega and Santa Rosalía we cannot advance “because the activists of the political party popular will of Caracas are a facade hahaha ”
