Former pilot of Colombia's president missing after Sinaloa Cartel plane crash: report

Source: Colombia Reports


by Adriaan Alsema August 4, 2020

Guatemala Police are investigating if President Ivan Duque‘s 2018 campaign pilot died while trafficking cocaine for the Sinaloa Cartel, La Nueva Prensa reported Monday.

According to the news website, police from the central Meta province said that pilot Samuel Niño went missing on December 3 last year while flying a shipment of cocaine to North America.

The presumably dead pilot is reportedly a trustee of former President Alvaro Uribe and the half-brother of Hernan Gomez, the regional director of Uribe’s Democratic Center party in the Meta department.

. . .

“That notice appears when authorities like Interpol or the CIA carry out investigations in partnership with the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Presidency,” the anonymous source told La Nueva Prensa.

Both Uribe and Duque are being investigated, among other things, over their ties to a late money launderer of the drug trafficking organization of Marquito Figueroa.

2. Nice Trump imitation...

"A drug infested shit hole"...have you ever been there yourself? My wife is Colombian, and I've visited there several times. The country and people there are wonderful. Sadly, there's extreme disparity between the very rich and the multitude of very poor, but most Colombians are neither. And your speculation that the Catholic Church is "built on a foundation of coke" is about as laughably bigoted as 45's claim that most Mexican immigrants are rapists. Here's a clue for you: the Church there was built long before the drug trade, which is itself the outgrowth of the lengthy civil war, in which the U.S.'s hands are not exactly clean. And, before you dismiss anywhere else as a "corrupt, shithole country," you might want to take a look in the mirror.
