Venezuela said Thursday it will deport the girlfriend of arrested drug lord “Valenciano,” leader of the Medellin-based “Oficina de Envigado” to Colombia.
According to newspaper El Tiempo, Viviana Cecilia Guerra Blandon has no criminal record and gave birth to a baby three months ago.
Blandon will be flown from Caracas to the border with Colombia where she will be surrendered to Colombian authorities.
Members of Colombia’s National Police will receive the girlfriend of the feared drug lord and decide whether to includ her into a program of protection.
Valenciano, whose real name is Maximiliano Bonilla Orozco, was one of the leaders of the split Oficina de Envigado and, together with his rival “Sebastian” considered responsible for a wave of violence that hit Medellin after the 2008 extradition of AUC boss Don Berna, who ruled the Medellin underworld.
