Carmen Masias Claux Named Peruís Drug Czar

LIMA Ė Carmen Masias Claux has been named the head of Peruís Devida drug enforcement agency, officials said on Monday.

The appointment of Masias, who headed the agency from 2012-2014, was confirmed in a resolution published on Monday in the official daily El Peruano and signed by President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and Council of Ministers chairman Fernando Zavala.

In another resolution, the administration accepted the resignation of Luis Otarola, who was named Devidaís head by former President Ollanta Humala.

Masias, who trained as a psychologist at the universities of San Marcos, San Martin de Porres and Federico Villarreal, has more than 30 years of experience in dealing with anti-drug matters at the Cedro drug abuse research center.

Peruís new drug czar has been a member of the board of the RIOD anti-addiction programs network and conducted studies for the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID.

Devida, which is under the Council of Ministers, develops and implements Peruís drug enforcement strategy, targeting drug trafficking and illegal drug use.
