The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, has announced this Wednesday the creation of the National Anti-Drug Superintendence, an organization to combat drug trafficking in the Caribbean country.
“For us to build an institution with a higher level, civic-military-police for the fight against drugs,” he explained during an event held to commemorate the 83rd anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB).
As he has pointed out, the Venezuelan Executive already has the “structure” for this new organism, which will be born next week, “to assume the planning, the strategic fight and the coordination” of the fight against drugs in Venezuela.
In this sense, it has recognized the work of the Venezuelan security agencies to neutralize camps with laboratories for the production of drugs, the seizure and destruction of narcotic substances and the disabling of clandestine tracks, as reported by VTV.
“Venezuela has been declared a territory free of drug production and processing worldwide,” he said, extending his thanks to the National Anti-Drug Office (ONA) and the GNB National Anti-Extortion and Kidnapping Command.
