International News: Colombia’s once most-wanted cartel kingpin pleads guilty in U.S.

Posted: Wednesday, January 25, 2023. 2:53 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Dairo Antonio Usuga, one of Colombia’s most wanted cartel kingpin pled guilty in the U.S., the Associated Press reports.

Usuga pled guilty to smuggling charges, admitting that he led a cartel and paramilitary group that trafficked in cocaine and deadly violence.

Usuga admitted that “homicides were committed.”

Usuga agreed to forfeit $216 million as part of the plea deal.

The “Gulf Clan” terrorized much of northern Colombia to control major cocaine-smuggling routes.

U.S. officials say that Usuga is one of the most dangerous drug traffickers on the planet.

Former Colombian President Iván Duque compared Usuga to the infamous 1980s-era kingpin Pablo Escobar.
