AFP: Albanian dictator's grandson belonged to criminal group involved in cocaine trafficking from Cuba

Cuba once again linked to cocaine trafficking

Ermal Hoxha is part of a nine-member group sentenced to prison terms from 10 to 13 years
Agence France-Presse reported that: Ermal Hoxha (age 42), the grandson of former Albanian communist dictator Enver Hoxha, was found guilty of belonging to a "criminal group involved in cocaine trafficking from Cuba through Albania to west European countries," the court statement said. The dictator's grandson was arrested in January 2015 and 264 pounds of cocaine were also confiscated.

The above news item should raise questions around the 2017 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) where on page 142 the following extraordinary claim is made:

"Cuba Despite its proximity to the largest exporters of illegal drugs in the hemisphere and the U.S. market, Cuba is not a major consumer, producer, or transit point of illicit narcotics. Cuba’s domestic production and consumption remain low due to active policing, strict sentencing, and nationwide prevention and public information programs."
Nor was any mention made in the report of the Panamanian police seizing more than 400 kilograms of cocaine in a Cuban ship on its way to Belgium in April of 2016.

Advocates of sharing drug intelligence ignore a long history of collaboration between international drug cartels and the Castro regime stretching back at least to the early 1980s where cocaine trafficking profits were used to fund communist guerilla movements in South America

Despite all this under the Obama Administration the Drug Enforcement Agency publicized how it was sharing intelligence on drug trafficking with the Castro regime, and one still wonders why cocaine is flooding America and deadly overdoses are at record highs?
