U.S. Vows to Defeat Colombia Trafficker
    #4576609 - 08/24/05 11:04 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

BOGOTA, Colombia - U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Wednesday hailed an extradition pact that has sent hundreds of Colombians to the U.S. for trial, declaring that no drug trafficker is beyond the reach of American justice.

Gonzales, in the first visit in five years by America's top law enforcement official, said extradition is critical in combating drug trafficking and the outlawed armed groups that control the trade.

"The extradition relationship that we have in Colombia is the very best in the world," Gonzales told a joint news conference with his Colombian counterpart, Mario Iguaran.

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, Washington's staunchest ally in Latin America, has extradited some 350 Colombians to face U.S. justice ? including the co-founders of the Cali cocaine cartel and two leftist rebel leaders ? since he came to office in 2002. The vast majority of them had been indicted in U.S. courts on drug, money-laundering and conspiracy charges, but some cases also involved murder and kidnapping.

Uribe's predecessors extradited a combined total of around 50 suspects between 1992 and 2000, according to figures from the Colombian attorney general's office.

"We have made a total commitment to fight drug trafficking," Uribe told reporters after meeting Gonzales late Tuesday.

Gonzales' visit to Bogota came after Colombian Supreme Court justices expressed concern that U.S. authorities were sometimes failing to respect the terms of the bilateral extradition treaty, under which U.S. prosecutors agree not to seek a tougher punishment than what the suspects would have faced had they been tried in Colombia.

The maximum sentence in Colombia for any crime is 40 years behind bars, but at least one extradited Colombian was sentenced to life without parole in the U.S.

Gonzales was also scheduled to meet with a group of Supreme Court justices.

Despite Uribe's support for extradition, it remains unclear whether the president will extradite the commanders of Colombia's right-wing paramilitary factions, which have been waging a dirty war against leftist rebels but are now pursuing disarmament talks with the government.

The paramilitary groups, like their rebel foes, fund themselves through drug trafficking. Several paramilitary bosses have been indicted in U.S courts, but have been offered leniency by the Colombian government if they demobilize.

Gonzales said the United States supports the paramilitary demobilization process but did not specify whether U.S. prosecutors plan to push for the warlords' extradition.

Separately, Colombian authorities on Wednesday announced they had seized a boat that was dragging 2 1/2 tons of cocaine in underwater containers, a move the navy described as "a new drug trafficking strategy on the high seas." Eight people aboard were arrested.

The bastards...who gives them a right to grow a naturally occuring plant!?!?

Anyhoo...I remember reading a while back in some book about how the Colombian courts ruled that what the US was doing there illegal, and now that the US continues to spray and stuff it is violating international law (could be mis-remembering though.)

OH SWEET JESUS!

Call in the army!

Man oh man the USA's policy's are SO FUCKING backwards it's not even funny. Well whatever...someday (hopefully) they'll realize the error of their ways. It only took ten years or so with alcohol...so far we're up to ~70-80 years with other drugs...but we're gaining ground I think.

just to give you an example of how fucked up drug policies are, right now in my town, its cheaper and way easier to buy coke, beans, meth AND any kind of pill you want, but weed is almost nowhere to be found.......... i saw a billboard the other day that pissed me off, it was a message from the sheriff saying "you think its dry now? wait until next month." bastards.
