Mexican Gov’t insists on extraditing Garcia Luna on trial in US

Mexico, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina) The Mexican Government insists on extraditing Genaro Garcia Luna, former Security Secretary to then-President Felipe Calderon, who is on trial in the United States for money laundering and other crimes.

The Attorney General’s Office (FGR) said in a communiqué on Monday that the Government issued arrest warrants against Calderon’s former strongman for several crimes for which he is on trial in New York in order to get him extradited.

The prosecutor informed that the first of those crimes is the Fast and Furious case (arms trafficking and combat to only some organized crime groups to favor the Jalisco Cartel), which, alongside other Mexican and US authorities, allowed the illegal entry of weapons into Mexican territory for the Armed Forces’ exclusive use.

The second arrest warrant against García Luna is the privatization of the federal social re-adaptation centers in which the federal government accepted onerous contracts with private companies for the construction and administration of prisons, which were not needed, and paid millions of dollars.

García Luna’s participation was fundamental to generating immense heritage damage and a series of criminal responsibilities about the issue.

The communiqué stated that the Government of the Republic has acted to revert those damages.

The FGR also stated that there are two other ongoing investigations and an arrest warrant against the former security chief, which is still pending and has not been disclosed.
