The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, ordered the extradition of two Dominican citizens accused of committing the crime of drug trafficking in the United States.
Through decree 424-22, the Executive Power ordered the delivery of Iván Amaury Madrigal Wright, alias “El Caniyú”, who is accused of manufacturing and distributing more than five kilograms of cocaine knowing that this substance would be illegally imported into the American nation.
Madrigal was captured by the authorities on July 27. The arrest was due to the requirement of a Puerto Rico District Court, which requested his extradition for allegedly being linked to international drug trafficking.
While ordinance 425-22 establishes the extradition of the Dominican national Aris Burgos Rodríguez, alias “la Gárgola” for importing into the United States a detectable illicit amount of cocaine, heroin and marijuana.
The latter is also charged with possession of a firearm for the commission of the crime of drug trafficking.
Yesterday, the president issued three other decrees that contemplate the extradition of Dominicans accused of drug trafficking in the North American nation.
Decrees 417-22, 418-22 and 419-22, order the delivery of Ramona Cruz (Ramona Isabel Cruz), Juan R. Corniel (Juan Ramón Corniel or Juan Ramón Corniel Díaz), and Alexandro de la Rosa.
These five citizens join the list of more than 70 Dominicans who have been extradited to foreign lands since August 2020, when the Abinader administration began.
