U.S. Names Two Guinea-Bissau Military Men ‘Drug Kingpins’
(BBC.co.uk) — The US has accused two senior military men from Guinea-Bissau of drug running.
Air force head Ibraima Papa Camara and former navy chief Jose Americo Bubo Na Tchuto have been named “drug kingpins”.
Under the Drug Kingpin Act, financial sanctions have been imposed on the two men and US citizens are barred from doing business with them.
Guinea-Bissau is a major transit point for cocaine smuggled from Latin America to Europe, and last week suffered an apparent army coup attempt.
