@anthoni, "rebels kidnapped his family"? where do you see that? Besides does one have to have cocaine in their system to smuggle drugs?

The other news is that the rebels kidnapped his family n making him do that; note: who would ever suspect national officials to do stuff like that on g.p. Does he have cocaine in his system?
