SANTO DOMINGO.- The request to extradite retired admiral Francisco Antonio Hiraldo Guerrero stems from confessions of former Dominican Army captain Quirino Paulino and Navy colonel Carlos Rosso Peña to U.S. authorities, on the links of the now extraditable and of other military officers to the protection drug shipments. of

Newspaper El Dia, citing source familiar with Hiraldo’s indictment in the U.S., details the dates, names and amounts of drug with which he is allegedly implicated.

In the indictment, individuals identified as W-1 and W-2 (Paulino and Rosso), who plea bargained in exchange for information to U.S. authorities, reveal how drug traffickers penetrated the very core of Dominican Republic’s Antinarcotics Agency (DNCD).

According to the indictment, the authorities first learned of Hiraldo’s actions from taped phone conversations from 2003 and 2004 between members of a drug trafficking ring, on cocaine shipments in the Dominican Republic, which they sougth to reship to the United States to distribute in the New York metropolitan area and elsewhere.

The information gathered led Dominican authorities to seize around 1,300 kilos of cocaine on or around December 18, 2004.

The individual who was to receive the cocaine in the Dominican Republic, referred to as "W-1", along with others, was arrested in the Dominican Republic shortly after the seizure, coinciding with the date of Paulino’s detention.

W-1 has been convicted in the United States and his information about Hiraldo’s collaboration led to the request to extradite the retired admiral, while local opinion makers see the revelation as the first of many senior officers –active and retired-  and prominent civilians whose names also figure in the indictment.

The US has known all about, and tolerated, the RD military and Colombian coke connection for years. This is some kind of a smoke screen.

Great!

Get rid of all of these rats.

Win/win situation for DR. At the very least, drug traffic slows and we rid ourselves of another powerful and corrupted military officer, Too bad that dozens are so eager to take his place.

I've come to think this is a problem that only the "paredon" would correct. Could we start tomorrow?

Hey guys it is known to some of us that the USA DEA do not act very quickly to arrest people for drugs smogling and that instead they take their time to make sure that when these guys are brought up in front of the judge the DEA has all the documentations to prove it unlike here in the DR were they just act because someone say so. The time will come when more and more high ranking active officers and ex-officers will be arrested and extradite to the USA along with some high profile members of the DR elite sociaty because their cases here will not go far.

Perrunos PPHachunos:

Operations occurred during Leonel's administration? Not big deal as it is known that the root of this problem were cemented during PRD PPH rule, and it ain't easy to get rid off it right away.

Since PLD starting fixing the country again in 2004, first fix was 1996-2000, these NARCO & MILITARY gangs have been falling like dead leaves in a Pennsylvania Autumn!

Now, going back to the BEST POLL IN THE UNIVERSE!

So far we have...

Have many narcos were captured during PRD PPH administration 2000-2004? ZERO (0)

Have many KILOS were discovered and decommissioned during the PRD PPH administration 2000-2004? ZERO (0) Kilos ZERO (0) Oz.


Jejeje, you still have time to make your vote count!

@ABJ.... Does not make it right to profit off the sufferings of others. Its called being a HUMAN. Secondly if your government invested more money in education and its counrty, instead of stealing it then maybe these woman wont have to sell themselves. Thirdly, american do come for the women, but so does the europeans, North Americans and mostly all other nations. What are Dominicans women know for throught out the world populartions, Models..not. Engineers...not Docotrs..not. Prostitutes...YES. Understand the facts before you defend your people.

Abjoker....You are certainly very concerned with molesting children and women.....is this all you think about? You are focusing on demand rather than supply with the drugs......the politicians and officers sworn to protect the people who are corrupt and involve themselves in unscrupulous acts are far worse than any weekend coke sniffer or recreational pot smoker in the US. Man up....the problem lies here not in the final destination.

Why doesnt the Dominican government provide education, food andproper housing for their citizens so that there mothers, sisters and daughters dont have to sell their bodies and their men do not have to deal drugs?
Dont be an ignorant joker trying to compare recreational drug use to drug dealing.....TG You are far away! There is nothing so foolish sounding as a man who knows nothing trying to sound educated....he only sounds like a ....well, joker.

Federal court documents revealed that Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel has been allowed to ship cocaine into America 5 tons per trip. Fast and Furious has focused attention on the trade which has sent guns south and drugs north since the Iran Contra affair of the 1980s. But the US federal government has also shipped guns by the truckload into the American cities of Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and Gary. The US government has also been shipping heroin in from Afghanistan. The Global Hawk is a pilotless drone version of the U2 spy plane. It has a compartment which allows the CIA (Cocaine Importing Agency) to export heroin 3,400 pounds at a time. American taxpayers pay 179 million dollars for each drone to transport the CIA’s heroin. Because the price has dropped this has led to 100,000 deaths a year from heroin overdoses worldwide This is good for the CIA and their drug cartel allies. The average age of a first time heroin user in America is now 14.

Ben Swann: What The Media Isn't Telling You About The Drug War

youtub dot com/watch?v=0S2vb5RcPWY&feature=player_embedded

The Sinaloa Mexican Drug Cartel Is A CIA Subsidary

America’s greatest National Security threat is from CIA run drug cartels. There are 1.4 million gang members in America. They commit 80% of serious crime. Of these 1.4 million gang bangers 250,000 work for Mexican drug cartels. The Mexican cartels are in the news because they have killed over 50,000 Mexicans since Chapo Guzman was allowed to escape from prison. Chapo Guzman had been convicted of killing Cardinal Posadas-Ocampo but won on appeal to a friendly court. Guzman goes to restaurants with at least 15 bodyguards armed with AK-47s yet cannot be found by authorities. A Roman Catholic bishop announced he was living nearby but authorities cannot find him. Guzman married an 18 year-old Mexican-American beauty queen who gave birth to a son in a Los Angeles hospital.

The rival Zetas gang allied themselves with the Juarez cartel. The daughter of the Juarez drug gang had a birthday party. 17 high school and college boys were killed. The assassins were let out of prison and given government weapons and vehicles to kill 17 teenage boys. Zetas captured, tortured and killed the man responsible releasing a video of his confession. Zetas beheaded 72 South and Central American illegal immigrants who did not want to work for free for the drug lords who captured them near the American border. The Zetas were so brazen that they simultaneously attacked two Mexican Army bases using superior weapons and tactics. Please do not be tempted to sign on to a war in Mexico to defend the Mexican people from the narco-terrorists. It would be a lot cheaper to legalize marijuana.

The current Mexican drug war which has killed between 50 and some say 80,000 was started when the CIA and their puppet Felipe Calderon decided to back the Sinaloa cartel against the 300 other cartels. They are seeking a CIA monopoly on the American drug market. That was the beginning of the extreme violence. Hanging enemies from bridges so morning commuters could see who runs their town. Sewing the face of a dead enemy on a soccer ball is how they show children they are tough. When the Mexican Arny fired all of the Juarez police force, they replaced them with Sinaloa friendly criminals. The fired policemen went into the kidnapping and assassination business. This has spilled over into America. Those Stratfor email releases revealed that the CIA was approving Sinaloa assassinations on American soil.
