Spanish judge Garzón requested to examine President Chávez

Ramón Torregrosa, a Spanish citizen, asked National Audience renowned judge Baltasar Garzón to detain Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez during his visit to Spain next Friday.

The purpose would be questioning Chávez about the death of Torregrosa’s wife, Venezuelan Maritza Ron, during the riots in Plaza Francia, following a recall referendum on August 15th, 2004.

According to the request made to judge Garzón, the Venezuelan president could provide further information on the case of Ron, who was presumably reached by a bullet shot from Chávez’s followers at opponents.

William Cárdenas, a representative of NGO Democratic Platform of Venezuelans in Madrid, told Europa Press that the individuals responsible for the killing were “pro-Chávez armed gangs, financed and led by the President’s Office.”

Let’s hope this ends well: that is, with Chávez tried…

And some days afterwards:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says his country will sell oil to Spain at 100 dollars a barrel in exchange for importing some goods.

In his visit to Madrid, Chavez finalized an agreement with Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero based on which Venezuela would sell up to 10,000 barrels of oil per day to Spain.

“You will have oil supplies guaranteed for 100 years because Venezuela has oil for 200 years,” Chavez said on Saturday.

“This could allow us to create a new international financial architecture in the future,” Chavez said in an interview with Spanish public television TVE.
