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.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
