Maduro is accused of “helping manage and ultimately lead” a criminal organization known as the Cartel of the Suns and that he”prioritized using cocaine as a weapon against America and importing as much cocaine as possible into the United States.” The President of Venezuela should ask former Panama President if he should take the charges seriously.

Noriega was captured by U.S. forces, shipped to the U.S. and convicted in a U.S. Court. He spent 28 years in a U.S. Federal Prison released in 2017 and dyng shortly after. U.S. Attorney General Barr said the Maduro’s FARC terror group “uses Venezuela as a safe haven from which they can continue to conduct their cocaine trafficking.” U.S. Government has placed a $15 million price on his head.
