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.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
