SDNY Detention of Venezuelan Narco Carlos Orense Azocar Features Publicly Paid Lawyer

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURT Exclusive, June 23 –     Venezuelan indicted narco-trafficker Carlos Orense Azocar was presented in Magistrates Court in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on June 23 and Inner City Press was (the only media) there. 

 Azocar had just been extradited in from Italy and the indictment against him unsealed. He was bought into the courtroom by two U.S. Marshals, in a green T-shirt and a shaved head with deep lines in it, at least in the back.  

SDNY Magistrate Judge Valerie Figueredo reviewed the financial affidavit that Azocar signed and submitted and appointed him publicly-paid Criminal Justice Act counsel. 

 (Given his resources, Inner City Press has already filed to have unsealed his financial affidavit, as it won in the recent narco case of Honduras' Tigre Bonilla).  

 Azocar pled not guilty and consented to detention. The case has been wheeled out and assigned to District Judge Vernon S. Broderick. Inner City Press will be covering it.

The case is US v. Azocar, 21-cr-379 (Broderick / Figueredo)
