9 Chinese Fentanyl Traffickers Sentenced After Bringing Drugs To U.S.

Sara Carter:

China sentenced nine individuals Thursday who were directly linked to a fentanyl trafficking ring, according to the Associated Press. Chinese officials worked alongside U.S. law enforcement to end the operation.

Liu Yong and Jiang Juhua were accused of both manufacturing and trafficking fentanyl, while the others were accused of trafficking the deadly narcotic. Yong was sentenced to death with a two year reprieve, Juhua and Wang Fengxi were both sentenced to life in prison, and six others connected to the operation received sentences between six months to 10 years.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security received an alert in 2017 regarding a vendor linked to the group in the Chinese city of Xingtai, where they were operating a secret laboratory. The group was responsible for shipping fentanyl to the U.S. and several other countries.

Chinese officials said they are pursuing three similar cases of fentanyl trafficking in partnership with U.S. law enforcement.

The synthetic opioid is largely responsible for a recent spike in overdose death rates in this country. Sara A. Carter produced a documentary, “Not in Vein,” last year, which exposed the illicit trafficking of fentanyl into our borders.  read more

  1. Funny, the Chinese usually execute drug dealers as a matter of course however these one all seemed to get prison except one who got a two year reprieve. How much you want to bet none of them will still be in the slam in five years.
