Edgar "Barbie" Valdez Villarreal: Mexican officials sought cartel deals
By Diana Washington Valdez \ El Paso Times
Posted: 11/28/2012 08:38:14 AM MST

Alleged drug kingpin Edgar "Barbie" Valdez Villarreal claims that
Mexican officials detained him two years ago because he refused to
collaborate with Mexican officials who sought agreements with the
major drug cartels.

In a letter to the El Paso Times, Valdez, 38, who was born in Laredo
and is a U.S. citizen, names several high-level Mexican officials
whom he alleges colluded with drug traffickers. Several of the
officials he named died in the wave of violence that gripped Mexico
over the past six years.

He said in the letter that the late army Gen. Mario Arturo Acosta
Chaparro, on orders from Governance Secretary Juan Camilo Mouriño,
set up meetings with representatives of organized crime groups to
discuss a potential pact.
Two such meetings were carried out with members of La Familia
Michoacana, one of the cartels.

He also alleges the general met with Heriberto Lazcano, leader of the
hyperviolent Zetas, in Matamoros before Lazcano was killed last
month. Mouriño died four years ago in a plane crash in Mexico City.

Later, Acosta allegedly met with Arturo "Barbas" Beltran Leyva and
with Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman. Valdez's letter also said that Valdez
was contacted about meeting, along with leaders of the Juárez and
Gulf cartels, with members of the organization led by Ismael "Mayo"
Zambada. Acosta was shot to death in April.

Valdez also alleges that high-ranking law enforcement officials in
President Felipe Calderón's administration embarked on a persecution
for his refusal to collaborate in the effort to develop pacts with
the cartels. He alleges that several of the officials received bribes
from drug traffickers.

Valdez faces extradition to the United States, where he is charged in
more than one jurisdiction in various drug-related cases. Last month,
he went on a hunger strike to protest what he said were poor
conditions during his incarceration at a maximum security prison in
the state of Mexico.
Mexican officials deny that he was mistreated in any way.

According to the U.S. State Department, Valdez was a high-ranking
member of the Beltran Leyva drug trafficking organization and was
suspected of being responsible for collecting tariffs at all drug
plazas controlled by the organization.
"Valdez-Villarreal was Arturo Beltran-Leyva's most trusted lieutenant
and hit man," the State Department said in a statement. He also led
the "Fuerzas Armadas de Arturo," a group of assassins responsible for
a majority of the killings committed by the drug-trafficking
organization, officials said.
"He was a key player in the bloody turf war for control of the
Interstate 35 smuggling route into the U.S., and, according to the
Drug Enforcement Administration, the person most responsible for
pushing the battle into central and southern Mexico," the statement

Valdez faces a 1998 two-count indictment in the Southern District of
Texas and a 2002 two-count indictment in the Eastern District of
Louisiana. He was arrested by Mexican authorities in August 2010.
Valdez played football for his high school in Laredo, where he
received his "La Barbie" nickname because of his light hair and blue-
green eyes. He was also given the nicknames "Guero" and "Mike."

In his letter, Valdez also said that "it is worth noting that the
Federal Police, no matter how many detentions they carry out, they
never seize anything, everything gets lost (money, watches, vehicles,
drugs, etc.,) yet it should also be mentioned that the Mexican
military and the Navy Secretariat are more honest, because when they
detain someone, they turn them over to the corresponding authorities
with whatever they had at the time of their detention."

He also denies categorically that he participated in any witness
protection program.
A spokesperson for Mexico's Federal Police was not available for
comment late Tuesday.

Juárez residents filed complaints with state and federal officials
against Federal Police agents who were sent to restore order during
the peak of the drug cartel wars. Residents accused the agents of
extortions, kidnappings for ransom and other violations.
Valdez alleges that before his 2010 detention he heard rumors that
certain officials had plans to kill him instead of capturing him.

Barbie accuses the PF and Genaro Garcia Luna of receiving drug money
Wednesday, November 28, 2012

In a letter from Valdez Villarreal and delivered by his lawyer,
Joselyn Erendira Gutierrez War, to Grupo Reforma, the alleged drug
dealer states that "the controls of the federal Public Security
Secretariat responsible for major operating (...) to combat drug
trafficking in Ciudad Juarez, Monterrey, Acapulco and Morelia,
received bribes from the same drug gangs. "

Below the full text of the letter delivered on Tuesday November 27
Reform Group (daily El Norte, Reforma, Mural) and published Wednesday:

I want to state, first, that I welcomed me to the witness protection
program. Likewise categorically deny the accusations and statements
that refer captors elements regarding the way how was my arrest, and
that the truth of the matter is this: my arrest was the result of
political persecution by the C. Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, who
established a harassment against me, for the reason that the
undersigned refused to be part of the agreement that Mr. Calderón
Hinojosa desired with all organized crime groups, for which he
personally conducted several meetings to have discussions with
organized crime groups.

Joints were subsequently implemented through General Mario Arturo
Acosta Chaparro, who met on the orders of President and Juan Camilo
Mouriño, with two of the leaders of the Familia Michoacana.
Subsequently, General in Matamoros met with Heriberto Lazcano and
Miguel Angel Trevino, the Z-40. Later, Acosta Chaparro and Mouriño
met with Arturo Beltran Leyva, El Barbas, and also met with El Chapo
Guzman, leader of the Sinaloa cartel.

Calderon wanted the deal with all cartels: Los Zetas cartel, Gulf
cartel, with me, the Juarez cartel, Vicente, Mayo and Chapo (Sinaloa
Cartel), situation in which, in the absence of response from me and
not want to have any ties to criminal organizations, was established
in acute persecution against me, to the point of having flunked
several homes without a warrant for it and of which I stole money,
jewelry, cars, and various belongings.

Genaro Garcia Luna, head of the Ministry of Public Security (SSP),
who at least since 2002, first in the AFI and the PFP then, I know
that I have received money, drug trafficking and organized crime, as
well as a select group composed of Benito Armando Espinosa, who
worked with the DEA and I was giving information; Luis Cardenas
Palomino, Edgar Eusebio Millán Gómez, Francisco Javier Palacios Garza
(PF Colombia), Igor Labastida Calderón, Facundo Rosas Rosas, Ramon
Small Eduardo Garcia and Gerardo Garay Cadena, who are also part and
receive money from organized crime and from me.

Among them had the charge of "operating a stop in" when in reality
were instructed to kill me, so much so that at the time of my arrest
which was carried out at the address in the media, and instead in
which I was alone. They say that day were reported dead but the truth
was yes. A federal police that was the same as I moved to this place,
where I am currently, urging me to run so I can shoot, so we can say
that to repel the attack would have killed me as Arturo did with
Aaron Gines Becerril, who was killed near the Mall Perisur, whom the
bullets we were provided all the back the day of my arrest.

Everything was covered by the PF, it should be mentioned that despite
the history of Genaro Garcia Luna, which are in various criminal
cases and that the U.S. government is already aware, even formed part
of the issues raised in the Initiative Mérida, and to which I have
already had access the latest witness testimony collaborator Matthew
(Sergio Villarreal) President Felipe Calderon holds it in position
without exercising criminal action against him.

As alternative data must be noted that in many Federal Police made
arrests, not seize anything, everything is lost (money, watches,
cars, drugs, etc). However it is necessary to note that both the
Mexican Army and the Navy are more honest, who is arrested, and make
it available so that stop. I could have done what they have done but,
I mention public officials, are also part of the criminal structure
of this country.

La Barbie acusa a PF y a Genaro García Luna de recibir dinero del narco
Miércoles, 28 de noviembre de 2012

En una carta redactada por Valdez Villarreal y entregada por su
abogada, Eréndira Joselyn Guerra Gutiérrez, a Grupo Reforma, el
presunto narcotraficante señala que "los mandos de la Secretaría de
Seguridad Pública federal responsables de los principales operativos
(…) para combatir el narcotráfico en Ciudad Juárez, Monterrey,
Acapulco y Morelia, recibían sobornos de los mismo narcotraficantes".

A continuación el texto íntegro de la carta entregada el martes 27 de
noviembre al Grupo Reforma (diarios El Norte, Reforma, Mural) y
publicada este miércoles:

Quiero manifestar, en primer lugar, que no me acogí al programa de
testigos protegidos. Así mismo niego categóricamente los
señalamientos y manifestaciones que refieren los elementos
aprehensores respecto a la forma de cómo fue mi detención; y que la
verdad de los hechos es la siguiente: mi detención fue el resultado
de una persecución política por parte del C. Felipe Calderón
Hinojosa, quien instauró un acosamiento en contra de mi persona, por
la razón de que el suscrito se negó a formar parte del acuerdo que el
señor Calderón Hinojosa deseaba tener con todos los grupos de la
delincuencia organizada, para lo cual él personalmente realizó varias
juntas para tener pláticas con grupos de delincuencia organizada.

Posteriormente se realizaron diversas juntas a través del general
Mario Arturo Acosta Chaparro, quien se reunió por órdenes del
Presidente y Juan Camilo Mouriño, con dos de los jefes de la familia
michoacana. Posteriormente, el general se entrevistó en Matamoros con
Heriberto Lazcano y Miguel Ángel Treviño el Z-40. Tiempo después,
Acosta Chaparro y Mouriño se entrevistaron con Arturo Beltrán Leyva,
El Barbas, y también se entrevistó con El Chapo Guzmán, líder del
cártel de Sinaloa.

Calderón quería el acuerdo con todos los cárteles: cártel de Los
Zetas, cártel del Golfo, conmigo, cártel de Juárez, con Vicente, Mayo
y Chapo (Cártel de Sinaloa), situación por la cual, al no haber
respuesta de mi parte y no querer tener nexos con ninguna de las
organizaciones criminales, se instauró en mi contra una persecución
aguda, al grado de haberme cateado varios domicilios sin una orden
legal para ello y de los cuales me robaron dinero, alhajas,
automóviles, así como diversas pertenencias.

Genaro García Luna, titular de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública
federal (SSP), quien cuando menos desde el año 2002, primero en la
AFI y luego en la PFP, me consta que ha recibido dinero de mí, del
narcotráfico y la delincuencia organizada, al igual que un grupo
selecto integrado por Armando Espinosa de Benito, quien trabajaba con
la DEA y me pasaba información; Luis Cárdenas Palomino, Edgar Eusebio
Millán Gómez, Francisco Javier Garza Palacios (PF Colombia), Igor
Labastida Calderón, Facundo Rosas Rosas, Ramón Eduardo Pequeño García
y Gerardo Garay Cadena, quienes también forman parte y reciben dinero
de la delincuencia organizada y de mí.

Entre otros ellos tuvieron la encomienda de "detenerme en algún
operativo", cuando en realidad tenían la instrucción de matarme, tan
es así que al momento de mi detención la cual se realizó la en el
domicilio que salió en los medios de comunicación, y lugar en el que
me encontraba solo. Dicen que ese día no se reportaron balazos pero
la verdad sí hubo. Un policía federal que fue el mismo que me
trasladó a este lugar, en el que actualmente me encuentro, me instaba
a que corriera para poderme disparar, y así poder decir que al
repeler el ataque me habrían matado al igual que hicieron con Arón
Arturo Gines Becerril, a quien mataron en las inmediaciones del
Centro Comercial Perisur, a quien los impactos de bala le fueron
proporcionados todos por la espalda el mismo día de mi detención.

Todo fue tapado por la PF, es de hacer mención que pese a los
antecedentes de Genaro García Luna, los cuales se encuentran en
diversas causas penales y de los que el gobierno americano ya tiene
conocimiento, incluso formaron parte de los temas tocados en la
Iniciativa Mérida, y a los cuales yo ya he tenido acceso el más
reciente el testimonio del testigo colaborador Mateo (Sergio
Villarreal); el presidente Felipe Calderón lo sostiene en su cargo
sin que se ejerza acción penal en su contra.

Como dato alterno habrá de hacerse notar que en cuantas detenciones
realiza la Policía Federal, no se decomisa nada, todo se pierde
(dinero, relojes, vehículos, droga, etc). Sin embargo es menester
señalar que tanto el Ejército Mexicano como la Secretaría de Marina
son más honestos, detienen a quien es, y lo ponen a disposición con
lo que detienen. Yo pude haber hecho lo que haya hecho pero ellos,
los funcionarios públicos que menciono, también son parte de la
estructura criminal de este país.
