“I have just signed the extradition of aka ‘Otoniel’, the worst drug trafficker and criminal in Colombia’s recent history. The country’s institutions show their strength and forcefulness. #EsConHechos #ElQueLaHaceLaPaga,” the president wrote on his Twitter account, including photos of the signing.

On Wednesday, the Court issued a favorable concept for the extradition of Otoniel, who was captured in October and whom has been the target of 122 arrest warrants and seven security measures for crimes such as homicide, illegal recruitment, criminal conspiracy, kidnapping for extortion, terrorism, illegal carrying of weapons and drug trafficking, among others.

He also faces six convictions, including two sentences of 40 and 50 years in prison, for aggravated homicide, homicide of a protected person, forced disappearance, forced displacement and illegal recruitment of minors. The Court approved the capo’s extradition for involvement in an ongoing criminal enterprise and narcotic offenses, for which he is wanted by the US justice system.
