NYT- El Salvador Investigates Adviser to Detained Americans in Haiti (Jorge Puello)

And just when you thought this mess couldn’t get much more convoluted? Along comes  Jorge Puello.

El Salvador Investigates Adviser to Detained Americans in Haiti

The police in El Salvador have begun an investigation into whether a man suspected of leading a trafficking ring involving Central American and Caribbean women and girls is also a legal adviser to the Americans charged with trying to take 33 children out of Haiti without permission.

Yeah, I’m pretty much fresh out of words.

Mr. Puello has been acting as a spokesman and legal adviser for the detainees in the Dominican Republic.

The head of the Salvadoran border police, Commissioner Jorge Callejas, said in a telephone interview that he was investigating accusations that a man with a Dominican passport that identified him as Jorge Anibal Torres Puello led a human trafficking ring that recruited Dominican women and under-age Nicaraguan girls by offering them jobs and then putting them to work as prostitutes in El Salvador.

Just go read the full article.

Puello claims it’s a case of mistaken identity.

But what if the concerns are proven true,  I mean what are the odds?  Alleged American human traffickers hiring on an alleged Dominican Republic human trafficker to be their spokesperson and legal adviser?

The mind simply boggles.

I suppose we can at least say with certainty that the 10 arrestees have definitely brought on someone with previous experience in trying to deflect international claims of human trafficking.

Puello has that specialized kind of ‘real world experience’ in such that simply isn’t taught  in law schools.
