Ecuador publishes list of criminals declared military targets

Quito, Apr 19 (Prensa Latina) The government of Ecuador revealed a list of "real capos" who operate in the country today and constitute "military targets" as part of the fight against organized crime.

The presidency released on its social networks, the names and photographs of the subjects divided into three levels, in the first of which is the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Ismael Mario Zambada Garcia.

In the same category appears Giovanny Andrés Rojas, Araña, who is described as the top leader of the Comandos de Frontera organization from Colombia.

In the third level of that group is, along with other criminals, the Ecuadorian Jose Adolfo Macias (Fito), who escaped from a prison in Guayaquil and since January, authorities have not been able to locate him.

The other list includes the criminals most wanted by the security forces and belong to the criminal groups Fatales, Águilas, Latin Kings, Lobos, Mafia 18, Tiguerones, Chone Killer and Lagartos.

The publication of the names in the early hours of Friday morning comes after the Ecuadorian president, Daniel Noboa, reported that his government has identified the “big bosses” of drug trafficking that would be operating in cities and border areas.
