US offers $15 million for information leading to arrest of Maduro
US Attorney General William Barr announced that his country will designate Venezuela as a state sponsoring terrorism. Instead of dealing with the coronavirus emergency president Trump is worried about Nicolas Maduro.
The State Department announced indictments against President Nicolas Maduro and other Venezuelan officials, whom the Trump administration accuses of having ties to international drug trafficking networks.
The US government offers US$15 million for "any information" leading to the arrest of the Bolivarian president as well as rewards of US$10 million for information related to National Constituent Assembly (ANC) president Diosdado Cabello, Vice President Tareck El Aissami, former general Hugo Carvajal, and former military chief Cliver Alcala Cordones.
The US argues that Venezuela allowed the then Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to use its national airspace to transport drugs and "flood the US with cocaine," as the Southern District of New York Attorney Geoffrey Berman said. An accusation not proved and absolutely vague.
