Cock and Rum

Cleveland Charles arrived in New York (JFK) on Saturday aboard a Caribbean Airlines flight from Georgetown, Guyana, and was selected for inspection by Customs and Border Protection officers.

Sharp-eyed officers focused on a bottle of 12-year-old El Dorado rum inside Charles’ suitcase.

Charles said he had purchased it at a duty-free shop at the airport in Guyana, the Brooklyn Federal Court complaint says.

A Customs officer “then opened the bottle, which contained a thick syruplike substance with a strong odor that appeared inconsistent with rum,” Department of Homeland Security special agent Scott Salamon stated in the complaint.

A field test of the liquid came up positive for cocaine, according to Salamon.


Greek Police Arrested Greek and Guyanese National Involved with Drug Cartel

Investigation regarding a cocaine cartel that was dismantled last Friday by Greek police which is still ongoing, while officers are looking through phone call transcripts to find the masterminds behind the criminal organization.

A famous Greek baseball player, who was part of an Athenian team with acquaintances in high society circles was arrested for participating in the circuit. The 38-year-old baseball player – along with his accomplices- had undertaken the mediation task in order to transfer large quantities of cocaine from Latin America to the Greek capital.

According to Greek Police the cartel had chosen the athlete and former model as the middle-man, who would push the drug to the right business and social circles, as a product of high quality.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency in Athens received information that 27 kg of cocaine were being transferred to Athens and informed Greek authorities. The prosecutor immediately gave the green light so that police could activate a bug that had been placed on the phone of several cartel members. The 38-year-old athlete appeared ready to receive the cargo, which would arrive to the port of Piraeus and would end up in a warehouse in Aspropyrgos.

Police also arrested a 48-year-old Guyana national at a central Athens hotel, who was described as the transfer supervisor and a major member of a Dutch cartel.

The police officers handling the case estimate that 38-year-old Greek man had acquaintances who helped him push the illegal substances in Athens. The investigation is currently focused on determining which of his contacts were friendly and which concerned drug dealing.

Greek authorities will continue the investigation in the coming days in cooperation with security agencies in the Netherlands and Guyana in order to uncover the people who were working abroad with the cartel, Guyana have never convicted any major Drug Dealer and lacks the well to do so, the current head of the Anti Narcotics Unite (CANU) was and still is associated with major drug dealers.

INTERPOL issues Red Notices for former FIFA officials and executives wanted by US authorities

LYON, France – At the request of US authorities, INTERPOL Red Notices – or international wanted persons alerts – have been issued for two former FIFA officials and four corporate executives for charges including racketeering, conspiracy and corruption.
The Red Notices have been issued for;

Jack Warner, Trinidad & Tobago national, former FIFA vice president and executive committee member, CONCACAF president, CFU president and Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) special adviser.

Nicolás Leoz, Paraguayan national, former FIFA executive committee member and CONMEBOL president.

Alejandro Burzaco, Argentine national, controlling principal of Torneos y Competencias S.A., a sports marketing business based in Argentina, and its affiliates.

Hugo Jinkis and Mariano Jinkis, Argentine nationals, controlling principals of Full Play Group S.A., a sports marketing business based in Argentina, and its affiliates.

José Margulies (also known as José Lazaro), Brazilian national, controlling principal of Valente Corp. and Somerton Ltd., broadcasting businesses.

Red Notices are one of the ways in which INTERPOL informs its member countries that an arrest warrant has been issued for an individual by a judicial authority and seeks the location and arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition or similar lawful action.

The individuals concerned are wanted by national jurisdictions and INTERPOL’s role is to assist national police forces in identifying or locating those individuals with a view to their arrest and extradition.

A Red Notice is not an international arrest warrant, and INTERPOL cannot compel any member country to arrest the subject of a Red Notice.

INTERPOL’s General Secretariat does not send officers to arrest individuals who are the subject of a Red Notice. Only the law enforcement authorities of the INTERPOL member country where the individual is located have the legal authority to make an arrest.
