Jailed 'kingpin' Walid Makled implicates Chavez government
Wire Services: The reputed Venezuelan drug kingpin who Colombia has decided to extradite back home rather than to the US says in a TV interview that he has videos proving Venezuela's ruling elite is deeply involved in cocaine trafficking.

But Walid Makled said in the interview broadcast Sunday night that he would disclose only to US prosecutors the videos and other "conclusive evidence" of drug corruption in the inner circle of Venezuela's leftist president, Hugo Chavez.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, seeking to improve what had been rocky relations with Chavez, announced in November that he would extradite Makled to Venezuela. Chavez asked first and Makled faces more serious charges, including murder, in Venezuela, Santos said.
