Mexican police allowed Zetas to use prison for kidnapped
PORFIRIO IBARRA, AP
Published 2:30 PM, Thursday, October 6, 2011
MONTERREY, Mexico - Police of a municipality in the northern state of
Nuevo León allowed the drug cartel Los Zetas use the local jail to
keep kidnap victims, said a state official.
The security spokesman of Nuevo Leon, Jorge Domene said Thursday that
four policemen were arrested in Juárez municipality and are subject
to remand the case.
The state official noted that the action of the policemen came to
light this week when state and federal authorities freed two
kidnapped people remained and presumably by Los Zetas cells remaining
on the city.
Juárez is a municipality on the outskirts of Monterrey, capital of
Nuevo Leon and 900 miles north of Mexico City.
"They say in the service of the criminal gang Los Zetas and is part
of research being carried out," said Domenico, without revealing the
identity of the arrested policemen.
Nuevo Leon, including Monterrey and the surrounding area has suffered
in recent years of drug violence, attributed to a dispute between the
former allies of Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel.
At various times and various places in the country have been arrested
police for their alleged links to drug trafficking, which has led
federal authorities to insist on the need to submit their security
forces to a continuous purification process.
In Nuevo Leon state authority held the weekend of seven
municipalities 172 policemen, including Juarez, for tests of control
Domene said the total, the Office agreed to submit to pretrial
detention to 73 of them for their alleged involvement in crimes such
as kidnapping, murder and espionage authorities for the criminal groups.
In the city of Mexico, President Felipe Calderon launched a security
forum and stated that no face time, you run the risk of organized
crime to move to the state.
"We have acted just in time in Mexico to curb organized crime in its
early stages, although in some towns, in some areas of the country,
has reached a penetration almost symbiotic relationship with some
authorities," the president said that the coming to power in 2006
launched an offensive against drug cartels.
One of the key points of Calderon's strategy has been the deployment
of soldiers and federal police. He said that the presence of federal
forces will remain until such time as the states have the police and
institutions able to address themselves to the crime.
Note: will be interesting to see how these are dealt with when they
show up on this side of border, although there is belief that some
already are. Maybe even a white H1 with phony plates.
