The Colombian guerrilla led by Timoleon Jimenez a.k.a Timochenko controls the 60% of drug business in the country. This information came from a study made by the Center for Security Studies and Drugs of the private University of Andes, Bogota.
Daniel Mejia, director of the investigation, also revealed that the rebel group has 9,000 men ready for combat, a network of informants and urban militants that every year receives USD 1,500 millions for the drug business.
According to the report of July of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) last year FARC produced 345 tons of cocaine, this meaning that it had a drop of 1,4% in the production of the drug since 2010. AV
