Colombian officials claim to have computer files captured from its FARC rebels that indicate Venezuela sold arms to the terrorist group, the New York Times reports. If Interpol verifies the files, they would also suggest links between FARC and Ecuador’s government and provide insight into the rebel organization. Colombia nabbed the computers in a raid in Ecuador earlier this month.
One letter apparently from a FARC leader said a top Venezuelan official “left with the pledge of bringing an arms dealer;” while another seems to describe a spy's murder. The files have authentic touches, the Times notes, including rebel jargon and code. But Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez ridiculed them and Colombia’s leaders, saying “This computer is like à la carte service, giving you whatever you want.”
