InSight Crime takes pride in its investigators being go-to sources for media reporting on organized crime. Colombia investigator Javier Lizcano was featured by Colombia’s Cable Noticias, a 24-hour news channel, in a report on one of the country’s largest trafficking groups after the arrest of its leader, paramilitary drug lord Dairo Antonio Úsuga, alias “Otoniel.” Lizcano spoke about how the Urabeños, also known as the Gulf Clan, have shown an uncanny ability to reform themselves after losing leaders in the past.
