It is well known in Venezuela the big chavistas politicians are all deep in drug trafficking, the army is basically a drug cartel that exports tons of it, mostly to Europe, Chavez kick the DEA from the country early in his government because they where "spies" and from there it started. of course they control all in the country so the only people guilty of anything there are oppositors or traitors. Now the son of the first lady is caught trying to sell 800 kg of coke in Haiti...


U.S. agents arrested two relatives of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on charges they conspired to transport 800 kilograms of coc aine to the U.S., according to two people familiar with the matter, a potentially explosive incident that comes amid U.S. accusations that the top echelon of Venezuela’s government is involved in the narcotics trade.

The two men, Efraín Antonio Campo Flores and Francisco Flores de Freitas, were first arrested in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Tuesday by local police, turned over to U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents and flown the same day to New York in a DEA jet

The arrests come as prosecutors in New York, Washington and Miami are pursuing numerous investigations into alleged drug-trafficking and money-laundering activities of top Venezuelan military, police and government officials, according to U.S. officials.

U.S. officials have long said Venezuela is the main transit point for coc aine from next door Colombia. Caracas routinely denies allegations that it is involved in drug trafficking, characterizing them as efforts to destabilize its leftist government.

The two men contacted a DEA confidential informant in Honduras in October and asked for help in trafficking 800 kilograms of coc aine through the airport in the country’s Caribbean island of Roatán, according to one of the two people familiar with the case.

In subsequent meetings in Venezuela, this person said, the two Venezuelans brought a kilogram of coc aine to a confidential informant to show the quality of the promised drug, which was to be sold in New York. Agents filmed and taped the meetings with the Venezuelans, this person added.

The funiest part for me:


The young men told authorities that they had diplomatic immunity


HAHAHAHA what do you think you are, Saudi?

Oh well, the country that saw me born is controlled by drug lords, there are some elections there in December, all polls say 80% of the people reject the regime, but they will still win, too much $$ from drugs and corruption, supported by a few dozens Sukoi and other Russian junk wont allow change in there. When Chavez started to buy the Russian weapons to defend from the "empire" people laugh and said what could that trash do against US power, they called Chavez fool, but the man was a genius, the weapons are trash to fight another country, but oh boy they do wonders against their own people, Maduro already said no matter what happens if his party don't win the elections he will rule with the army.

Somehow this will be spun into USA = the bad guy in this.

Good job imo, wonder how close family they are? Can't be too close though, or they wouldn't be muling.

You know, i don't share the views of people over here, but legal drugs have black market too where they are legal, alcohol and tobacco have huge smuggling operations in places where taxes are too high and give the opportunity to mobsters to make a profit.

But sure legalize hard drugs, the world will be better, whatever floats your boat...

Eh, some decades ago the coke wouldve been sent ahead on up to the Northeast to be peddled after the initial seizure. You know in order to 'track the sales.' DEA used to be all about that.

Good on them now though.

Actually I have to agree with BlueJacket.

We can make better use of the money. Instead of spending some trillion dollars on the War on Drugs.

We could of used that money on education and health care. To combat drug use.

Portugal did this and drug use went down.
