Salvadorian Terrorist Goes to Trial in Cuba
Chavez Abarca was apprehended on July 1, 2010 at the Caracas airport when he was trying to enter Venezuela using a fake passport to carry out violent actions.
He was sent to Cuba on July 7 by the Venezuelan government following an Interpol Circulation notice requested by Cuba.
Chavez Abarca was instructed on charges and investigated, since he was one of the main members of a Central American terrorist net organized by the Cuban American National Foundation and Luis Posada Carriles, which led a series of terrorist acts in Cuba, mainly against tourist facilities in city of Havana and the beach resort of Varadero.
