Drug lord "Crazy" Barrera deported to Colombia
Barrera was deported along with drug-traffickers Jorge Milton Cifuentes and Eduardo Mejía, wanted by Interpol, the Minister of the Interior and Justice said
Reverol said that Barrera is "one of the most wanted men worldwide." He was captured on September 18 by officials of the National Guard and Venezuela's National Anti-Drug Office (ONA) in Venezuela. At the moment of his detention, Barrera carried a fake Colombian passport.
He was captured after operations conducted by 15 intelligence teams deployed across five Venezuelan states.
Barrera was expected to be picked up by a Colombian police aircraft at Venezuela's international airport Simón Bolívar.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
