Start of the trial in Basel against drug lord Alvaro H. (47)

He smuggled nine tons of cocaine worth CHF 129.5 million

He lived in a poor-looking apartment building in Basel. According to the public prosecutor, Alvaro H. directed a massive global cocaine trade. As of Monday, the Colombian drug lord is on trial in Basel. Blick reports live.


Alvaro H. and his gang members ran a “ranch” on Sandgrubenstrasse in Basel. From here they sold cocaine to middlemen and end customers. Some of the coke was imported via a fruit trading company. One of them had her address in Basel – in a normal block of flats.


The trial against the Colombian drug lord Alvaro H.* (47) begins today at the Basel criminal court.

The Colombian-Spanish dual citizen is before the criminal court because, according to the indictment, he is said to have acted in a “globally active drug trafficking group at the highest management level that is extremely rarely visible”. And this as part of the Clan del Golfo, the most powerful crime syndicate in Colombia. Alvaro H. has been living in the city of Basel since 2012 and has a C permit.
