A former defence minister from a neighbouring country. Is detained on charges related to drug trafficking in the United States. This is a very unfortunate incident the ambassador of the country in te US has said. He reminded that the US has not yet filed charges or confirm that they had detained the man involved. However, witnesses have confirmed they saw that the man was detained by drug enforcement officers. The ambassador of the country concerned. Reminds that the US is under an obligation to inform him that a citizen of his country has indeed been detained. He confirms that he will assign a legal team to defend the man accused of any charges. Embarrassingly this is not the first time that such a high ranking figure has been detained under drug charges. Another Minister has been charged previously.
We now await a formal charge for his name to be released. Also to be able to identify the country he was a defence minister.
