From the BBC:
“The alleged leader of one of Colombia’s most powerful drug cartels has been extradited to the US by Brazil.
“Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia was handed over to the US Drug Enforcement Agency in the city of Manaus and flown out of the country on a US government plane.
“Mr Ramirez Abadia, known as Chupeta or Lollypop, was captured in Brazil last year and sentenced to 30 years in jail.
“US prosecutors accuse him of smuggling more than 500 tons of cocaine into the US and of routinely killing his rivals.
“Mr Ramirez Abadia is alleged to have been a key member of the Norte del Valle cartel, which is accused of sending huge amounts of cocaine to the US and Europe, and laundering the proceeds in Brazil. “
