This site heard from a source last Saturday that Alex Saab was to be extradited to the U.S. today, Wednesday 29 September 2021. We tweeted as much, and asked aviation expert @Arr3ch0 to keep an eye. He just informed us that Department of Justice's N708JH appears to be en route to Cape Verde.

The unavoidable conflict between Spain's Attorney General, Baltasar Garzon & chavista criminals

The Objective brings quite a scoop today: PDVSA retained Baltasar Garzon to act in some corruption cases in the Spanish jurisdiction. The cases involve procurement at BARIVEN, and appear to focus, particularly, on Roberto Rincon and Abraham Shiera. Eulogio del Pino signed for PDVSA, establishing objectives and association with ILOCAD, which is Garzon's shop.

Colombian thug Alex Saab loses latest round against Department of Justice Alek Boyd Wed, 09/01/2021 - 07:11

The case of Alex Saab's arrest in Cape Verde could easily be put in the box of U.S. Government's blunders. Department of Justice's Attorneys and Drug Enforcement Administration's agents have been looking into Saab's activities for a very long time, in our view more than enough to build a water-tight case to put away this Colombian thug, his narco partner German Rubio, and his closest relatives / associates. But DoJ and DEA haven't. One of Saab's sons lived in America (on who's dime?) for years.
