For anxious fans of hit Netflix show ‘Narcos’, the wait is finally over.
The world’s most famous drug dealer Pablo Escobar returns to our screens today, complete with signature drooping moustache and a shirt permanently unbuttoned to the navel.
Viewers may have been enthralled by the constant plotting and back-stabbing, but not everyone is happy with the portrayal of Pablo.

His son, Sebastian Marroquin, has been critical of the show, claiming it gets some key facts wrong and fails to honour the victims of ‘the War on Drugs’.
Here, he exclusively gives MirrorOnline 10 ‘Narcos’ plotlines he claims aren’t true:
Sebastian said: “Mr Cano, the journalist, was the one who revealed the photograph of Pablo as a drug dealer, not Lara Bonilla the minister.
“All he does is then use Mr Cano’s during a debate in congress.
“But this was published first by the newspaper El Espectador.”
“He didn’t give, or take it back from the boss of M-19, as it is in the TV series.
“It was given to Pablo as a present for backing M-19’s attack on the Supreme Court in which judges were killed and they burnt all the evidence of drug trafficking.
“It was given to him to show gratitude for his logitistical, military and financial support for this act of terrorism.”
“I’ve published pictures of me in the book of me with the sword.
“If anyone has any doubts as to whether this is true – I took those photos and published them.
“The sword was a present from my father.”
“This isn’t real. He wasn’t killed by Pablo Escobar.”
“He didn’t need to – why would he go so far if they could could sell drugs so close?
“There was a deficit of drug dealers at that time, there weren’t enough drugs to satisfy the Americans.
“They never tired of buying them! Everything my father sent they bought in seconds.’
“My mother Maria Victoria Henao never condoned Pablo’s violence.
“She never helped him in his business as an accomplice. Completely the opposite.”
“My father wasn’t linked to that at all.”
“The death of my father’s partner (and cousin) Gustavo Gaviria didn’t happen in the way they show.
“Gustavo was unarmed when police found him.
“He was gunned down in front of his wife and three-year-old son.
“Originally, police wanted to taker him away and torture him and make him disappear, but he clung railings outside his house so tightly, they couldn’t get him out, so they decided to shoot him instead.”
“The agreement supposedly reached with the Cali cartel isn’t true.
“Pablo never gave the Cali cartel to buy a truce.”
