Former associate of Pablo Escobar has been arrested on drug charges in Colombia

Spanish police announced the arrest of a suspected drug trafficker and former associate of the late Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar at his lavish residence in Medellin. This arrest followed an international operation, with the detained individual believed to be the link between Medellin-based traffickers and European criminal groups such as the Ndrangheta in Italy and the Mocro Mafia in the Netherlands. The suspect, identified as Julio Andres Murillo Figueroa, is known to have collaborated with a prominent leader of the Medellin Cartel during the 1980s and 1990s, believed to be Escobar. The operation leading to his arrest was initiated through information exchange between the Spanish National Police’s fugitive unit and Colombian authorities.
