DEA interrogations could lead to more extraditions, official says

Santo Domingo.- The Government’s Antinarcotics adviser on Thursday said he doesn’t rule out more extraditions to the U.S. as the result of interrogations of Puerto Rican kingpin Jose Figueroa Agosto’s wife and mistress.

Marino Vinicio Castillo (Vincho) said the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the National District Office of the Prosecutor might be interested in questioning Leavy Nin Batista and Sobeida Felix, to get their versions of the rest of the case.

Castillo spoke during the signing of an agreement with the Certified Public Accountants Institute, to jointly investigate allegations of government corruption.

He said Figueroa’s case set a record in the U.S., when 750 FBI agents flew aboard three C5-A Galaxy aircraft, to arrest more than 130 police officers and officials in Puerto Rico.
