U.S. Unseals Drug Trafficking Charges Against Venezuela’s President

The Justice Department unsealed crook costs in opposition to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and different regime heavies on Thursday in connection with alleged narcoterrorism and drug smuggling into the United States.

Attorney General William Barr announced the fees at the Justice Department in Washington with some officials in attendance and others related through teleconference — precautions taken because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The expenses involve 15 defendants, which includes Maduro and different political and navy leaders in Venezuela. The regime is a cesspit of corruption, Barr alleged, as the strongman and his lieutenants have abetted smuggling and, Barr stated, laundered money for drug traffickers.

Venezuela is also accused of permitting Colombians related with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia — the People’s Army, known via its Spanish initials, FARC — to use its airspace to fly cocaine north thru Central America to locations in North America, Barr said.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, stated the scheme among the Colombians and Venezuelans were working for some a long time and represented a planned method by means of Maduro’s regime to “flood america with cocaine.”
