Dominican fugitive “the Monster” extradited to North Carolina
DominicanToday.com - The antinarcotics agency (DNCD) Monday announced the extradition to the United States of a Dominican wanted on charges of money laundering and drug trafficking in North Carolina.

Francisco Monte de los Santos, “El Monstruo” (monster) was escorted to Las Americas Airport (AILA), from where U.S. federal agents placed him aboard a special flight, the DNCD said.

Monte, who had been hiding in the country for several years, was arrested November 10, and held in the DNCD compound since, said spokesman Roberto Lebrón, who added that the Supreme Court authorized the extradition.

He was arrested while driving a vehicle on the Las Americas highway, next to the toll plaza. No details on the amount of the drugs or of the money laundered were provided.

Extraditable’s “hat tricks” must stop, Prosecutor says

Justice minister Radhames Jimenez Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to put an end “to the vicious circle and hat tricks” employed by the extraditable alleged drug baron Ramon del Rosario Puente “Toño Leña,” and which has delayed his extradition request proceedings an entire year.

Jiménez said there’s a weakness in procedural term, stressing that throughout the year, the Justice Ministry has kept all legal requirements ij the case updated, and that the Supreme Court has given del Rosario all the opportunities for legitimate defense. He said despite the repeated postponements, “there’s nothing which can be possibly attributed to the honorable justices,” Hugo Alvarez, Edgar Hernandez and Victor Jose Castellanos.

The hearings resume at 11pm today after 10 postponements, for the accused also known as “El Maestro” and “El Frances"
