“La Paca, drugs matriarch”
It is a two-part documentary miniseries of IB3, the Public Entity of Radiotelevision from the Balearic Islands.
Francisca Cortés Picazo, known as “La Paca”, became, in the 90’s, the biggest drug trafficker in the history of the Balearic Islands. From the shanty town of Son Cuerno, the matriarch’s tentacles spread through all social strata.
For decades Paca’s empire grew exponentially, along with her fortune. Properties, businesses and millions of euros were buried in her town’s soil.
From the year 2000 onwards, his empire faltered. Two police operations brought her down. The Son Cuerno case, in 2006, which exposed the corruptibility of a member of the National Police, and Operation Kabul, in 2009, which culminated in the imprisonment of the Paca clan.
This documentary miniseries, produced by IB3 with the collaboration of Cinética Producciones, consists of two episodes that narrate the rise and fall of the drug matriarch.
