SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic.- The United States ambassador to the country, Robin Bernstein, described the capture of the nacortrafic César Emilio Peralta “César el Abusador” as an important achievement in the fight against drug trafficking.
Upon leaving a meeting with the president of the Supreme Court of Justice, Luis Henry Molina, the diplomat said she has no knowledge of when Peralta will be extradited to the US.
“We still do not have a date, but we are very grateful to the forces of the Dominican Republic, the judicial system and the Colombian forces, and of course it is to the United States that assisted in this process,” he said.
He said that it is important for the United States because it is the beginning of a joint collaboration to attack drug trafficking.
While the Dominican attorney general considered that the most suitable is that the alleged drug trafficker “César El Abusador”, goes directly in extradition to the United States.
“Both routes can happen but in practical terms the ideal thing is to go directly to the United States, because the search and capture of ours was precisely to send it to that country, it made little sense if it was for a reason, to bring it here in an extradition and then make another extradition, ”said the attorney.
Hurrying of “César El Abusador”
César Emilio Peralta was arrested in Bocagrande, an exclusive hotel sector in Cartagena, Colombia, after the Colombian police carried out different operations together with US authorities.
The alleged narco, who wore sportswear was captured in the tourist area of Bocagrande but immediately transferred to the Police command for his review and confirmation of the US Marshall.
Peralta is listed by the United States as ‘Highly dangerous’.
