Cliver Alcala-Cordones charged with drug terrorism.
US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials flew to Colombia to arrest Cliver Alcala-Cordones, a retired Venezuelan General who the US accuses of drug terrorism.
Two DEA sources familiar with the operation told Reuters.
A day earlier, the US accused Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro, Alkala and more than a dozen high-ranking Venezuelan officials in the “drug-terrorism.” The US State Department announced a reward of up to $ 10 million for information that would help arrest Alcala.
US Attorney General William Barr accused Maduro and his cronies of conspiring with the Colombian terrorist group FARC to “flood the United States with cocaine.”
According to unconfirmed reports, Alcala voluntarily surrendered to the DEA and agreed to cooperate with the prosecution.
