Melo Charged with Colombia Coke & Bombs Wants Time to Confirm and Resolve so April 10

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 6 – Carlos Fernando Melo is charged with a conspiracy to import cocaine into the US from Colombia, and attempts to buy explosives for the FARC and ELN in Colombia.

  On March 6, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein held a proceeding. Inner City Press went and covered it. 

  Judge Stein asked the Assistant US Attorney and defense counsel why they asked for extensions.

Defense counsel said there is an attempt to "confirm" things in Colombia; he said if it is not brought to conclusion soon, he will file a letter - under seal.  Inner City Press might oppose that.

  Judge Stein said the parties should work to expedite the case. The next proceeding is set for April 10 at 11 a.m.

The case is US v. Melo, 21-cr-311 (Stein)
