They will indict 7 soldiers for cocaine seizure in La Guaira

A total of 7 soldiers and 22 civilians will be charged for their alleged involvement with a network that traffics drugs from Venezuela to Europe, according to military sources.

Originally there were 46 detainees during the procedure carried out last Saturday at the Simón Bolívar International Airport, located in Maiquetía (La Guaira).

But that initial list suffered a reduction after conducting interviews with each of the detainees by the 7th National Drug Prosecutor’s Office. The 7 soldiers to be charged come from the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) component, specifically from the National Anti-drug Command. While the group of 22 civilians belong to airport security. It is expected that the 29 will be presented this Tuesday before the 2nd Control Court of La Guaira, an opportunity in which the Public Ministry will proceed to notify officials that they are the subject of a criminal investigation. The group of detainees presumably integrates a drug trafficking network that they have been monitoring for a year, revealed a military source.

In other words, last Saturday, it was not the first time that these people conspired to allow the shipment of drugs from the country’s main air terminal. But just when they intended to take the 15 panelas of cocaine (17 kilos 588 grams) out of the country, they were detected by agents attached to the GNB’s Special Anti-drug Unit No. 45, the source said. The panelas were hidden in backpack-type luggage deposited in hold 2 of the plane corresponding to flight 072 of the Air Europa airline. bound for the Kingdom of Spain. This and the other caches were brought from Colombia. The criminal investigation remains open to locate and arrest other members of the drug trafficking network.

For this, the statement of each of the detainees is key, who have revealed data regarding the modus operandi of the criminal organization and its leaders.
