Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced this Wednesday the creation of the National Anti-Drugs Superintendance, an anti-drug trafficking organization in the Caribbean country.
“So that we can build an institution with a higher level, a civil-military police force to fight drugs,” he said during a ceremony to mark the 83rd anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB).
As he emphasized, the Venezuelan executive already has the “structure” for this new organism, which will be born next week, “to plan, strategically fight and coordinate” the fight against drugs in Venezuela.
In this sense, it has recognized the work of Venezuelan security agencies to neutralize camps with laboratories for the manufacture of drugs, the seizure and destruction of narcotics and the deactivation of secret traces, as reported by VTV.
“Venezuela has been declared an area free of drug production and processing worldwide,” he said, thanking the National Anti-Drugs Office (ONA) and the GNB’s National Anti-Extortion and Kidnapping Command.
