Drug lord "Crazy" Barrera deported to Colombia
Barrera was deported along with drug-traffickers Jorge Milton Cifuentes and Eduardo Mejía, wanted by Interpol, the Minister of the Interior and Justice said
Reverol said that Barrera is "one of the most wanted men worldwide." He was captured on September 18 by officials of the National Guard and Venezuela's National Anti-Drug Office (ONA) in Venezuela. At the moment of his detention, Barrera carried a fake Colombian passport.
He was captured after operations conducted by 15 intelligence teams deployed across five Venezuelan states.
Barrera was expected to be picked up by a Colombian police aircraft at Venezuela's international airport Simón Bolívar.
Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
