By Dialogo November 01, 2010 In various locations around the country, the Colombian authorities arrested twenty members of a network that was sending cocaine by ship to the United States – by way of Central American ports – and to Europe, Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera affirmed. In a joint operation by the Colombian police and the Colombian public prosecutor’s office, twenty alleged members of the drug-trafficking cartels ‘La Oficina de Envigado’ and ‘Los Rastrojos’ were arrested “simultaneously,” Rivera said. The detentions took place in the cities of Cartagena and San Andrés (in the Caribbean region) and Medellín and Turbo (in the northwest), he specified, adding that among those arrested are individuals in the service of Colombian drug trafficker Maximiliano Bonilla, alias ‘Valenciano,’ a liaison with Mexican cartels. “The majority of those arrested are a series of persons, including workers at shipping firms and port guards, security personnel, and mechanics, who facilitated the contamination of containers” with cocaine, Rivera emphasized. “The gang brought the drugs into the port moments before the vessel departed and camouflaged them in canvas bags with a capacity of up to thirty kilos each. Then they broke the security seals, introduced the alkaloid into the containers, and sealed them again with copies of the seals,” he recounted. According to the official account, the drugs introduced onto the ships were headed for the United States by way of ports in Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico. In other cases, the gang members also introduced the alkaloid onto vessels headed for Europe. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) believes that ‘Valenciano’ has direct ties to the Mexican ‘Los Zetas’ cartel. Drug-trafficking and money-laundering charges have been pending against him in a New York court since 2008. Until 2009, Colombia was the world’s leading producer of coca, but it has been displaced by Peru, according to a study by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) released in June. Those arrested were charged with criminal conspiracy and with manufacturing and trafficking narcotics.

And based on the morale of the athletes and what I have seen of their training, I think they should give a good account of themselves,” Igali said.Meanwhile, wrestling sensation Adekuoroye, who was recently elevated to the summit of the rankings in her weight category (55kg), says her new position will inspire her to achieve more success.The Commonwealth Champion who won a bronze medal at the last world championships in Las Vegas in 2015, added that her latest ranking will not put her under any pressure to perform in Paris.“I’m so very glad and it gives me confidence that God answers prayers.”“It gives me confidence that I can still do more; not just ranking but to bring that medal; to bring that belt. So I have confidence that there’s nothing; absolutely nothing that God cannot do.”“I don’t have any pressure. My President (Daniel Igali) has told me ‘go out and wrestle the way you wrestle at home. I didn’t ask you to go and put pressure on yourself’ and I believe if I wrestle the way I wrestle at home, I will win. I don’t have any pressure,” the 5-time African Champion stated.”The 2017 Senior World Wrestling Championships is slated for August 20-26 in Paris, France.Team Nigeria are expected to depart the country on Friday.Nigeria has never won gold at the World Championships.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Igali-August-17.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Adekuoroye-2-August-17-1.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
