A former Venezuelan general has surrendered himself to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) just a day after being indicted by fellow US federal prosecutors, while having a $10 million reward posted for his capture.
On Friday, Clíver Antonio Alcalá Cordones, a former major general of the Venezuelan Army, surrendered to Colombia’s National Intelligence Directorate in Bogota and is now in the custody of the US hard drugs kingpin organization, better known as the DEA.
Alcalá left his position in Venezuela’s armed forces in 2013. US federal prosecutors alleged he had been “a leader and manager of the Cartel of the Suns,” a supposed drug smuggling ring inside the Venezuelan government controlled US government.
Now the US regime is claiming that this now suddenly makes leading Venezuelan officials “narco-terrorists.
Alcalá was already making headlines this week: when Colombian authorities seized an arms shipment on Wednesday.
Alcalá admitted he had been plotting a coup d’etat against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on behalf of self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido, who is backed by both Washington and Bogota but enjoys no support in Venezuela.
This looks to be the easiest way to ship this treasonous general out of the oil-rich Latin American country in order to save his sorry life from being imprisoned for high treason in Venezuela.
How conveniently he was available for this surrender. The USA could not get a better deal than this, after he was caught, he will now be the star witness (prosecutor?) of all of US regime’s enemies in Venezuela. President Maduro was also among those indicted.
The charges by the US Department of Justice claim that in 2008, Alcalá helped provide support for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a communist militia group in rebellion against the Colombian government and which plays a role in cultivating coca, used to manufacture cocaine.
The DEA has been the key international actor in the protection of drug production and processing in Colombia and the guarantor and vigilante of its transfer to the minds of young people in the United States.
The European Union, endorsed the American charges on Thursday, with EU foreign affairs spokeswoman Virginie Battu-Henriksson calling them “progressive measures of pressure in the context of the political proxy crisis in Venezuela.”
At the same time the EU is bankrupt, willing to survive by printing (fake) money @ the European headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.
