The president of the United States, Donald Trump, said last Friday that the government of Ivan Duque “has done nothing” against the drug trafficking problem.

The authorities seized 1,016 kilograms of cocaine that were found on a ship that was going to sail from Cartagena to the United States.

The operation, carried out by the Police and with the cooperation of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA, for its acronym in English), was called “Fatima II” against the trafficking of cocaine by sea, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Defense.

The first data indicate that the cache belonged to the Gulf Clan, the largest criminal gang of paramilitary origin in Colombia, and its finding was possible thanks to the human and technological controls available in the port of Cartagena.

The drug was located during an inspection of a container that had irregular security seals, which is why it was necessary to check the merchandise that was inside.

There the authorities found the cocaine that was hidden in 37 white bags mixed with a preparation of binders for molds.

According to the information available to the authorities, the vessel was going to sail to Guatemala as a transit country and subsequently intended to arrive in the United States.

Indeed, this Friday, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, said that the government of Ivan Duque “has done nothing” against the problem of drug trafficking.

“He has not done anything for us,” Trump said.
