Sessions charges Chinese Nationals of Trafficking Fentanyl

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is charging two Chinese citizens for manufacturing and trafficking fentanyl into the U.S. linked to two fatal overdoses in Ohio.

Sessions announced the 43-count indictment Wednesday in Cleveland, Ohio, which accuses 43-year-old Fujing Zheng and his father, 62-year-old Guanghua Zheng, of operating an international network trafficking synthetic opioids and 250 other drugs into 25 countries and 37 U.S. states, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The pair, based in Shanghai, China, operates the Zheng drug trafficking organization, which officials say has “shipped deadly fentanyl analogs and other drugs around the globe for a decade.”

“Fentanyl and its analogs are the number one killer drug in America today, and most of them come from China,” Sessions said Wednesday.
