NICARAGUA GOVERNMENT’S ALLEGED DRUG TRADE TIES DEEPEN WITH ARREST

Insight Crime on 18th October reported that a government official tied to the ruling party in Nicaragua is alleged to have led a sophisticated drug trafficking ring that moved cocaine through Central America, adding to longstanding suspicions of official party links to the international drug trade.  Francisco Sarria García (aka “El Doc”) is a representative of the Central American Parliament (Parlacen) on behalf of the governing Sandinista National Liberation Front (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional — FSLN).
