The narco shadows that follow Colombias new vice president

written by Jamie Vaughan Johnson March 30, 2017

Colombia’s new vice-president is the decorated golden boy of Colombia’s police force. He has, however, also been accused of links to both drug cartels and paramilitary forces.

Oscar Naranjo, retired general and former National Police Chief, was named an honorary special agent by the DEA in 2010, the same year he was heralded as the World’s Best Policeman.

However, he has in the past been called out by former paramilitary leaders, drug traffickers and retired officials for allegedly receiving bribes and providing protection to drug traffickers.

A former CIA agent, Baruch Vega, raised a red flag over Naranjo in 2006 in an interview with news website Narco News.
