Argentine Opposition Calls for DEA Arrest of Maduro

Opposition leader of Argentina demands arrest of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on US Drug Trafficking Charges

Argentine politician Patricia Bullrich, president of the opposition Republican Proposal party, on Sunday, announced plans to make a request to the US anti-drug agency, DEA, to arrest the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, upon his arrival in Argentina in the upcoming days.

“Tomorrow I will make a presentation to the DEA. This is because they have a request to capture Maduro, due to his reported participation in the ‘Cartel de los Soles’,” Bullrich said in radio statements.

The request is based on a bilateral agreement signed between Argentina and the United States, intended for such resolution. It may potentially lead to Maduro’s arrest over the US drug trafficking complaints against him.

The alleged cartel is said to be referred to as the “Cartel of the Suns,” since its members wear a sun insignia on their uniforms, which are apparently high-ranking Venezuelan military personnel believed to be involved in criminal activities, such as drug trafficking.

Bullrich, who was the security minister during Mauricio Macri’s administration in 2015-19, has not just made this plea of arrest but has also asked the Argentine Justice to investigate and consider Maduro, as well as Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel and Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, of crimes against humanity.

The Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), which will take place in Buenos Aires on January 24, with Argentine President Alberto Fernandez hosting the forum, will also be attended by many other presidents of the region.

Bullrich expects that the arrest of Maduro will be done in order to ensure the universal validity of human rights and justice.
