    US to charge Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro with drug trafficking

    Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro will be hit with drug-trafficking charges by US federal prosecutors on Thursday, according to a report. The charges against Maduro, an adversary to President Trump, were expected to be unveiled at a live-streamed press conference by Attorney General William Barr and Geoffrey Berman, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, the New York Times first reported.

    “The Venezuelan regime, once led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, remains plagued by criminality and corruption,” said Attorney General Barr in a statement.

    “For more than 20 years, Maduro and a number of high-ranking colleagues allegedly conspired with the FARC, causing tons of cocaine to enter and devastate American communities. Today’s announcement is focused on rooting out the extensive corruption within the Venezuelan government – a system constructed and controlled to enrich those at the highest levels of the government. The United States will not allow these corrupt Venezuelan officials to use the U.S. banking system to move their illicit proceeds from South America nor further their criminal schemes.”
