New York Prosecutors Implicate Venezuela’s Maduro as Accomplice in Drug-Trafficking

The District Attorney for the Southern District of New York has released a document that reveals that Nicolás Maduro approved the drug trafficking actions undertaken by his nephews.

Prosecutor Joon H. Kim asserts that there is sufficient evidence that Efraín Antonio Campo Flores and Franqui Francisco Flores de Freitas were predisposed to commit the crime of drug trafficking because they maintained contact with cocaine suppliers and members of the FARC, while acting with the approval of Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro.

The information was supplied by the Venezuelan journalist Maibort Petit, who has closely followed the case; this is the first time that the US Justice Department has directly linked Maduro to the “narconephews.”

“In the document before the court, the prosecution uses the word “imprimatur” to refer to Maduro’s knowledge of the drug trafficking business of his nephews. The term is used in political language to indicate that a program, a public statement, or any other document, receives the approval of the hierarchy of a party, its allies, or any other agent whose approval is considered important.

In the new revelations published in Venezuela al Dia, the prosecutor maintains that the drug flights made use of the most important airports in the country, under the auspices of the Venezuelan regime.

The document responds to the family of the “narconephews” who implored the judge not to condemn them to life imprisonment because according to them they are “innocent youths.”
