Hitman says $25m offered ‘for killing Chavez’ – AJE


Al Jazeera has obtained exclusive footage of a Colombian contract killer detailing an alleged $25m plot to kill Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president.

He says the money was offered by Manuel Rosales, one of Chavez’s main political rivals, during a secret meeting in 1999

A Colombian paramilitary group took up the offer, according to the hitman.

Chavez has long said there is a plot by Colombia to kill him, and the relation between the two countries is tense.
