CaribWorldNews, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. June 12, 2009: As drug trafficking remains a major issue for the Caribbean, several nationals remain on Interpol`s wanted list because of alleged engagement in the illicit activity, a CWNN investigation has found.
Among them is Felix Antonio Alberto of the Dominican Republic and Cecil Gregory Boatswain of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Both 39-year-olds are wanted for drug trafficking in the U.S. and they are not alone. Jose Bordon, also of the DR is being sought in Hudson, New Jersey for narco-trafficking while Radames Castillo Martinez is wanted in Puerto Rico and North Carolina, also for drugs, as is 32-year-old Jose Ricardo Fernandez and Carlos Manuel Garcia.
The suspects remain on the lam even as U.S. and Caribbean leaders move to fight the constant drug flow out of and within their borders. The U.S. State Department`s International Narcotics Strategy Control Report has consistently stated that the Caribbean is a transit point for drugs entering the U.S.
Recently, at the Organization of American States` General Assembly in Honduras, U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, insisted that the Obama administration will provide counter-drug support to the Caribbean and Latin America.
`We will provide the technical assistance and the financial assistance that the new administration needs, because we want to be on the side of a president who will take on the criminals and drug traffickers,` she said.
