DEA source trafficking drugs from prison, says lawyer for Venezuelan ‘first nephews’

DEA source admits in court plan to provide drugs to Venezuelan ‘first nephews’ | McClatchy DC – Santos returned to the stand on the second week of the high profile case in the United States’ criminal trial, taking place in the federal Southern District of New York. Campo and Flores face life in prison on charges that they conspired to smuggle 800 kilograms of cocaine into the United States. On Thursday, Santos described how he made several audio and video recordings of the defendants allegedly talking about and handling cocaine. Sentado, whose real name is Carlos Amílcar Leva Cabrera, can’t be called to testify as he was killed following the nephews’ arrest. The two cousins contended they were “lured” into the drug deal by corrupt informants who said they would supply the planes, the cocaine and the buyer. Roday, Flores’s defense attorney, peppered Santos with questions about the so-called “original plan” charging that informants were going to also supply the airplane and that it was Santos who initiated discussions about bringing drugs into the United Santos. He pressed Santos to admit the defendants were “new” and inexperienced.
