A British businessman serving a sentence for two murders has been framed and the killings were carried out by executioners working for Pablo Escobar’s notorious Medellin cartel, it has been claimed.
Jhon Jairo Velasquez Vasquez – Escobar’s chief assassin responsible for the killing of 300 people – has sensationally stated 75-year-old Kris Maharaj has been wrongly imprisoned just as lawyers battle to overturn his conviction.
Maharaj was working in Miami, Florida, as a property investor in 1986 when he was convicted for the murder of father and son Derrick and Duane Moo Young at a downtown Miami hotel.
His legal team has been battling to have the conviction overturned in recent years with new evidence alleging the murders were carried out by hitmen working for Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Now Velasquez, the kingpin’s most feared assassin who is responsible for killing 300 hundred people, has claimed through his lawyers that Maharaj was wrongly convicted.
