Haiti - Drug Trafficking : The Haitian Justice extraded Grégory Georges in the United States
Rebound in the case of the Panama-flagged "MV Manzanares" vessel carrying sugar from Colombia for the Nabatco Company (owned by Haitian businessman Marc Antoine Acra) and where a significant amount of cocaine and of heroin was found on board in various caches in April 2015 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-13617-haiti-justice-major-drug-seizure.html by agents of the Brigade for the Fight Against Drug Trafficking (BLTS) coordinated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), a final estimated quantity of between 700 and 800 kg of cocaine and 300 kilograms of heroin with a market value of approximately $ 100 million.

This operation led to the arrest of 16 people including 3 Haitians https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-13885-icihaiti-justice-3-haitian-and-13-crew-members-of-the-mv-manzanares-arrested.html then to the arrestation of several members of an important family https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18257-haiti-flash-more-members-of-a- large-family-Haitian-inculpes.html

Grégory Georges, aka "Ti Ketan" presented as a "lieutenant" of an international network of traffickers, only of all suspects apprehended in this case to be incarcerated in prison first in the national penitentiary and then in isolation for his safety at the civil prison of Croix-des-Bouquets, having survived 6 assassination attempts was extradited to the United States.

Arrived Friday on American soil in Florida, "Ti Ketan" will appear on May 6 before a federal judge where he will be tried for conspiracy to distribute drugs. For the US authorities this is a key witness in this case that could reveal names and bring down heads in the business community both in the US and Haiti, circles that have not ceased to accuse him of lying... what contradicts the many assassination attempts in prison to silence him...

This extradition to the United States was authorized by Jean Roody Aly, the Minister of Justice.
