According to the newspaper, sources close to the alleged process confirmed a pact between Javier Antonio Calle Serna, the DEA and a prosecutor of the District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
The newspaper said that according to its sources the Rastrojos’ top leader and his brother Luis Enrique already are inside the U.S. but that this could not be confirmed.
A U.S. attorney who in the past had attempted to broker deals between the Calle Serna brothers and U.S. justice reportedly is now brokering the transfer of family members of the two top drug lords to the United States to avoid revenge.
Several members of Los Rastrojos have already been indicted before U.S. courts for drug trafficking.
The cartel, a spin-off of the now-defunct Norte del Valle cartel, is considered the most powerful drug trafficking organization in Colombia.
