Fabio Ochoa Vasco, aka “Carlos Mario” or “Kiko Pobre”, one of the lieutenants of drug lord Pablo Escobar, served a prison sentence thirteen years after his detention in the United States.

He was released on June 6, according to the United States Bureau of Prisons, and mafia sources assure him that he is already on the street, according to the El Tiempo newspaper. However, U.S. federal sources suggest that the pandemic could delay their effective freedom, as is the case with Salvatore Mancuso.

In 2007, he gave up in the United States and informed about the Mafia’s relations with paramilitaries, business people and politicians. In September 2009, he pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and money laundering.
