Event Details

Jump head first into the real life story of Pablo Escobar, the inspiration behind hit Netflix series NARCOS. 117 Live Speakers Series introduces Capturing Pablo: An Evening with Javier Pena and Steve Murphy.

DEA agents Javier Pena and Steve Murphy were instrumental in the take down of one of the most prolific and gruesome drug lords of all time, โ€œThe King of Cocaineโ€ Pablo Escobar, and they are coming to Dubai College Auditorium to tell you about the rise and fall of the Medellin Cartel, and the role they played in bringing down its notorious leader.

The eveningโ€™s discussion will shed light on their input into the hit Netflix series - where they will reveal information which does not feature in the show - followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

This speaker event is a real-life cop story, told first-hand by the team on the front lines. It was, and still is considered to be one of the most riveting police investigations ever.

Javier Pena was brought up in Kingsville, Texas and in 1984 he joined the US DEA. Four years later the Retired Special Agent in Charge volunteered for an assignment in Bogota, Colombia. It was there that Pena and his partner, Special Agent Steve Murphy, set out to bring down the Medellin drug cartel and its leader Pablo Escobar.

Pena was awarded Colombiaโ€™s highest honor for his efforts, and received commendation awards from the DEA and the wider international community. He is regarded as an expert on the subject of the Medellin Cartel.

more unique, real-life and thrilling live shows to the region. Capturing Pablo throws light on what has been known as one of the most high-profile investigations in the world. For the first
time in the UAE, fans and those inquisitive about the life of Pablo Escobar can hear first-hand from the Agents instrumental in the capture of the notorious criminal.'
