Remember how a few weeks ago, on the eve of the Trumpinator’s speech in Miami, the Castrophile media and the Engage Cuba lobby argued strenuously that the Castro regime was helping the U.S. wipe out drug trafficking, and that imposing new sanctions on Cuba would force Castro, Inc. to withhold its help?
Oh, yeah. Sure.
King Raul is such a saint, and so fond of ending drug trafficking. Yeah, sure…
Well, look at this. Surprise, surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle would say: A dictator’s grandson and eight other men have just been convicted of drug smuggling in Albania, and all fingers point to Cuba/ Castro, Inc., as the main source of their cocaine.
Why, Mildred… how is this possible? Jeez jimminy crickens, oh Lord!
Of course, this grandson of an Albanian dictator is an exception… a rotten apple… Fidel and Raul’s progeny would never behave like this!
From AFP/France 24:
An Albanian court has sentenced the grandson of former communist dictator Enver Hoxha to ten years in jail for smuggling cocaine, a statement said on Wednesday.
Ermal Hoxha is part of a nine-member group, which includes two Colombians, whose were served prison terms from 10 to 13 years on Tuesday, a Tirana court said.
They were found guilty of belonging to a “criminal group involved in cocaine trafficking from Cuba through Albania to west European countries,” the court statement said.
Hoxha, 42, and his alleged accomplices were arrested in January 2015 in an operation which led to the seizure of 120 kilogrammes (264 pounds) of cocaine.
At the time police also uncovered a drug processing laboratory in Xibraka, 68 kilometres (40 miles) south of Tirana.
A 2017 US State Department report said Albania “remains a significant source country for marijuana, as well as a transit route for cocaine and heroin destined for European markets.”
Enver Hoxha ruled Albania from 1944 till his death in 1985. He isolated the Balkan country and imposed a strict dictatorial regime.
