Target: Peruvian President Ollanta Humala
Goal: Stop the military corruption that is allowing thousands of dollars of dangerous cocaine to be illegally shipped out of Peru.
Peru has become the world’s leading cocaine producer thanks to alleged military corruption allowing thousands of dollars of the dangerous drug to be exchanged close to a near roadless military base in the jungle. Everyone from narcotics police, to former military officers and current and former U.S. drug agents claims the military has to be responsible for the obvious sale of drugs happening via narcotics planes at the military base in the military-controlled remote jungle region of the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro river valley.
The area is where about two-thirds of the country’s cocaine production originates. Narcotics police witnessed and took video of the narcotics planes dropping off thousands of dollars and being loaded with pounds of cocaine, but the police say they don’t have the weapons to take on the criminals and military involved.
Allegedly, corrupt local military officers charge $10,000 per flight, allowing the planes to land and take off for the drug deals without intervention. Peru’s Congress passed a law that would allow the government to shoot down drug planes, but ended up not buying the equipment necessary to follow through.
Something must be done before this corruption and drug trade gets even more dangerous and out of control. Urge the Peruvian president to take action against the military corruption that is allowing thousands of dollars of dangerous cocaine to be illegally shipped out of Peru.
Dear President Humala,
You probably aren’t proud that Peru has become the number one producer of cocaine in the world, but this crime is happening under your watch and what appears to be by your own military. Corrupt local military officers supposedly charge $10,000 per flight to allow narcotics planes to drop off cash and load up with cocaine to export.
You cannot allow the corruption surrounding this illegal drug trade to continue. I urge you to take action against the military corruption that is allowing thousands of dollars of dangerous cocaine to be illegally shipped out of Peru.
