Like the Castros have done in Cuba for decades, their puppet dictatorship in Venezuela is providing support and safe haven to Marxist, Colombian narco-terrorists groups.

ELN, Maduro, and Santrich: Allies in Venezuela Against Peace in The Region

According to Colombian intelligence, the key leaders of FARC and ELN are in Venezuela, protected by Nicolas Maduro.

A Colombian army report confirmed an open secret: Nicolas Maduro’s regime is protecting criminals with help from terrorist groups.

Intelligence reports from the Colombian Army revealed that Seuxis Paucias Hernandez, alias Jesus Santrich, a former FARC guerrilla, fled to Venezuela. ELN, the terrorist group that has said it is willing to defend Maduro against an eventual military coalition against the dictatorship, is now protecting Santrich.

The intelligence documents state that emissaries of Ivan Marquez, presumably members of ELN, picked Santrich as soon as he crossed into Venezuela. They would take him to meet the former guerrilla commander, and Gentil Duarte, FARC’s first high ranking deserter of the peace process and who today, commands the guerilla dissidents. In short, according to Colombian intelligence, the foremost leaders of both terrorist groups are in Venezuela, free and unrestricted, under the protection of Nicolas Maduro.

Santrich is summoned to appear before the Supreme Court of Justice on 9th July in the trial for alleged conspiracy to commit drug trafficking.

Santrich is wanted in the United States with an extradition request. He is still waiting for the second ruling of the Special Jurisdiction of Peace on the principle of non-extradition. He had the right to non-extradition for supposedly already been demobilized. According to the Colombian government, five high commanders of the FARC have already deserted the peace process, and their whereabouts are unknown. They are presumably in Venezuela. The guerillas will likely be rearmed. They will be armed by the regime of the neighboring country to continue committing acts of drug trafficking, terrorism, and violence.

One for all and all for one

All indications are that Nicolás Maduro seeks to shield the “Chavista revolution” with the protection of the Colombian terrorist groups that today operate in Venezuela and continue their criminal work. These groups, in turn, have come together and committed to protect the regime and provide it with economic benefits and advice on criminal logistics.

The dictatorship has converted Venezuela into fertile territory for criminal activity. The world is investigating the South American country for permitting the development of terrorist activities, narco-trafficking, international money laundering, and corruption.

Thanks to Chavismo, at least three terrorist groups operate from Venezuela: ELN, FARC, and the Islamist Hezbollah. The country, usurped by Maduro, has become a shelter for ELN thus preventing the Colombian justice system from taking any action against the guerilla group.

The top leaders of the ELN are in Venezuela, while this criminal organization controls part of the handling and trafficking of Venezuelan gold.
