The leader of the criminal group “America”, Zoran Jaksic, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in a Peruvian court the day before yesterday for drug trafficking in a case called “Swallow”, the Elcomercio portal reported.
Let us remind you, Jaksic was already sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2017, after he was arrested a few months earlier, in July 2016, on the border between Peru and Ecuador. However, that verdict was recently overturned due to procedural errors and a new trial was ordered.
– The National Court has now sentenced Jaksic to 25 years in prison. The court also ordered that Jaksic be expelled from Peru after serving his sentence. In addition to him, for the shipment of cocaine, eight other people were sentenced to between 15 and 35 years in prison – Peruvian media reported.
According to them, Jaksic, who is also known as a “man with 1,000 people”, because 47 passports with false identities were found in his possession during his arrest, and his accomplices were tried for smuggling 800 kilograms of cocaine, which was seized in 2016.
– The time he spent in prison since the first verdict in 2017 will be included in his sentence – the media stated and reminded that Jaksic was in the public spotlight last year as well, because near the prison Castro Castro in which he was imprisoned, a tunnel was discovered which was dug for his escape.
