JUAREZ AND HIDALGO, NUEVO LEÓN
Authorities reported on Saturday that 36 Zetas have been arrested in a 24 hour period. Most arrests were for narcotic dealing and weapons. (Arrests such as these are valuable tools for investigators in developing intelligence and often lead to more and bigger arrests.)
Friday became one of the bloodiest with a total of 12 deaths in Torreon and neighboring Matamoros. One attack occurred at 5:15 pm when a group of maquiladora workers were having a Christmas celebration. Three truck loads of gunmen drove up, got out and opened fire. Three workers were killed immediately, and seven more were wounded.
TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, CHIAPAS
A representative of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Paulina Trujillo, reported that human trafficking is more profitable than the drug trade, and the fight against human trafficking requires a great social movement. In an interview, Trujillo said that action to tackle this scourge must be based in law enforcement, but also grounded in an intense campaign of promotion, awareness and prevention, and prosecution of crimes and criminals. Every year men, women and children fall into the hands of human traffickers in their own country and abroad, adding that trafficking affects all countries, states, either as countries of origin, destination or transit of the victims.
MEXICO, DISTRITO FEDERAL
Mexican federal police announced the capture of Nelson Horatio Vargas García, alias “El Macuilón”, “one of the main leaders of the criminal organization headed by Edgar Valdez Villareal aka “La Barbie” in the state of Morelos. When arrested, he was carrying a handgun and extra magazines, about 27,400 pesos (US$2008.71) and three cell phones.
Alejandra Sota, spokesman for President Felipe Calderon, denied today that the Mexican government knew about the money laundering operation of the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as part of the fight against drug trafficking. “No, the Mexican government did not know and it is important to note that we have initiated an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office to determine responsibilities and in any case to investigate if there was such involvement,” Sota said the program “Al Punto” the Univision Network. The New York Times reported last weekend that the U.S. DEA has been laundering or smuggling millions of dollars in profits of Mexican drug cartels as part of the fight against drug trafficking.
