The Spanish police agent added that other detainees include Luis Carlos de León, a former officer of the Venezuelan electric power utility and a former executive officer of Pdvsa Procurement Division.
Villalobos may be the first senior officer detained as part of an ample investigation carried by the US government into corruption inside the Venezuelan state-run oil company, resulting thus far in 10 businesspersons who have pled guilty. ■
