Diego Leon Montoya Sanchez


Diego Leon Montoya Sanchez (born January 11 1958/1961), also known as Don Diego, is a former Colombian crime boss leader of the Norte del Valle drug cartel. On October 25, 2002, Montoya was listed as a Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker on the United States Department of Treasury's Specially Designated National List (also known as La Lista Clinton)

Montoya has used the known aliases Diego Montoya, Diego Sanchez-Montoya, "Don Diego", "El Senor de la Guerra" (the warlord), "El Ciclista" (the cyclist).

On May 19, 2008 Colombian Interior and Justice ex Minister Carlos Holguin announced that 'Don Diego', together with some prominent paramilitary leaders, will be extradited to the United States. The extradition will take place in "the coming few days", says the Minister.
