Santo Domingo.- Presidency Antinarcotics adviser Marino V. Castillo on Monday revealed that Sinaloa Cartel assassins planned his murder by using explosives at his residence.

He said the arrest of Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman will have “repercussions” in the country, and warned of assassinations as part of the power struggle he affirms are imminent. “A power struggle will be unleashed as reprisal for those who betrayed him (Guzman) and for control of the network.”

The official said after the arrest of several Sinaloa Cartel hired killers, “ the authorities had found a picture of the gate of my house in their cell phones and confiscated 16 sticks of dynamite from them.”

He said during a meeting in Colombia former U.S. Homeland Security Dept. secretary Janet Napolitano asked him “what about Sinaloa,” in reference to the recent arrests of several people suspected of working for Guzman in Dominican Republic. “Napolitano virtually interrogated by about Sinaloa’s activities in the country.”

As to the case of Quirino Paulino (also suspected of collaborating with Guzman) Castillo said U.S. authorities have access to his entire case file, “but Dominican officials here have it in a vault, this country must be told the truth. We need a new or revised arrangement with the U.S., it should be reciprocal because we can’t continue sending over drug traffickers without receiving information back.”

Speaking on Hoy Mismo Channel 9, Castillo said he even suggested the enactment of a new formula for penitentiaries shared by various nations, “but Barry McCaffrey (former drug czar) and other senior officials doubted that Congress would approve it."

Vincho Castillo knows too much. I wonder if he is paid by the cartel to go public on this.

Chapo was head of logistics for the biggest smuggler in the world ...he goes by the initials US.

US would love to convince the tax payers that El chapo was a billionaire - ya a billionaire with a $20 punta in a beach-side flop that only had a dozen in the ice box and no pass-port - no money - no exit strategy - no place to run

sounds like a billionaire to me...rightie?

...remember "US's" ole runny reagen's buddy manuel noriega..?

Ya well manuel use to run logistics with a dude named oliver and well we all know manuel fell from grace.....


So let's round up with the usual suspects and get back to smuggling dope while destroying the inner cites...

The scary thing is that Sinaloa has been making Meth in RD, because they can get the chemicals that they need - no problema.

Don't you think Vincho, that if the Sinaloa cartel wanted to kill you, they could have easily done just that? Don't fool yourself and give yourself more importance that you are worth. It is time for you to go play golf and leave public service life. Your thought are no longer required or wanted.
