Humberto Moreira Valdés, Governor of the state of Coahuila

Borderland Beat recently received this e-mail manifesto from citizens in the border city of Piedras Negras detailing the corruption within the state government and public institutions of Coahuila.

This statement serves as a valuable insight into the methods employed by the all powerful state governors in Mexico to amass wealth with impunity at the expense of their constituents.

This corruption continues virtually unabated despite attempts at financial, electoral and budgetary reforms. Transparency and accountability are still just empty words.

It is because of the immoral nature of the characters described below that drug cartels and other organized crime groups in Mexico operate with a depressing freedom of action. These groups need each other to continue their grip on power.

These alliances forged in hell have permitted organized criminal groups to acquire such power that they are now fully integrated into the administrations of some states, especially within the local and state security apparatuses.

The term “Narco” governor has entered the vocabulary in Mexico.

The state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan peninsula, home of the resort city of Cancun, has seen a PRI former governor, Mario Ernesto Villanueva Madrid, extradited to the U.S. to faces charges that he accepted $19 million in bribes from the Juarez cartel in exchange for allowing the cartel free rein to smuggle Colombian cocaine through the state. U.S. Prosecutors allege that he received $500,000 for each shipment.

The former governor also faces a second indictment, alleging that he laundered his alleged trafficking profits through accounts at Lehman Brothers in New York and elsewhere.

This year’s campaign for Governor in Quintana Roo saw the arrest and arraignment by federal authorities of the left wing PRD candidate, former religious minister and mayor of Cancún Gregorio Sanchez, for his close ties and involvement in drug trafficking with Los Zetas and the Beltran Leyva Cartel.

Borderland Beat also recently posted stories on the ties to drug cartels of the current Governor of Tamaulipas, Eugenio Hernandez Flores.

A Message From The Citizens of Piedras Negras, Coahuila


WE ACCUSE THE GOVERNOR OF COAHUILA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION OF THE FOLLOWING IRREGULARITIES

I. - Nepotism
2.- Corruption
3.- Public indebtedness
4.- Authoritarianism
.

THE ENTIRE FAMILY OF HUMBERTO MOREIRA VALDES IS EMPLOYED BY THE STATE AND IS LIVING OFF STATE BUDGET. THROUGH MISUSE OF THEIR POSITIONS THEY NEGOTIATE MILLIONS OF PESOS IN BUSINESS ARRANGEMENTS WITH THE STATE GOVERNMENT.

THE FAMILY IS EMBEDDED IN STRATEGIC PUBLIC, STATE, UNION, PRI AND MUNIICIPAL POSTS THAT HANDLE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PESOS ANNUALLY WITHOUT ANY TRANSPARENT AUDITING TO ACCOUNT FOR THE DESTINATION OF THOSE FUNDS.

RUBEN MOREIRA: BROTHER AND RIGHT HAND

THE GOVERNOR PLACED HIS BROTHER IN THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE PRI PARTY IN COAHUILA AND ALSO SERVES AS A FEDERAL DEPUTY IN THE LOWER HOUSE OF CONGRESS. RUBEN CHOSES CANDIDATES AND MAKES OR BREAKS CAREERS WITHIN THE PRI STATE PARTY AND IS THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN COAHUILA.

NOBODY WITH ANY BIT OF INTELLIGENCE AND POLITICAL AMBITION WILL DARE ACT AGAINST RUBEN.

AS PRI CHAIRMAN RUBEN MANAGES A FUND THAT COLLECTS MILLIONS OF PESOS FROM PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS OF ALL MUNICIPAL AND STATE BUREAUCRATS UP TO THE LEVEL OF DEPARTMENT HEAD. THIS A BASICALLY A FEE PAID TO THE PRI TO GAURANTEE A JOB. IN OTHER WORDS, AN EXTORTION.

HE ALSO MANAGES FEDERAL FUNDS PAID DIRECTLY TO ALL POLITICAL PARTIES AND A DISCRECIONARY FUND DERIVED FROM STATE FINANCES THAT IS HIS BROTHER THE GOVERNOR ASSIGNS TO HIM .

RUBEN HAS MISUSED THESE FUND TO PURCHASE COUNTRY ESTATES, RANCHES, CABINS FOR RENT IN COLORADO, AIRCRAFT THAT ARE IN TURN RENTED TO THE STATE GOVERNMENT, HOMES AND INVESTMENTS DEPOSITED IN MEXICAN AND FOREIGN BANKS.

CARLOS ARIEL MOREIRA: BROTHER

THE GOVERNOR PLACED CARLOS AS SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE TEACHER’S UNION AND IS ENGAGED IN THE CORRUPT MANAGEMENT OF PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS OF UNION FEES OF TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND WORKERS EMPLOYED IN THE STATE EDUCATION SECTOR.

CARLOS HAS AMASSED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PESOS IN BANKS AND REAL ESTATE IN CANCUN, SANTIAGO NUEVO LEON AND HOUSTON TEXAS LAKE FRONT RENTAL PROPERTIES

ALVARO MOREIRA: BROTHER

THE GOVERNOR PLACED ALVARO AS ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT FOR THE CAPITOL CITY OF SALTILLO. HE MANAGES A BUDGET OF MILLIONS OF PESOS WEEKLY.

LIKE HIS BROTHERS HE HAS AMASSED REAL ESTATE HOLDINGS AND BAMKING INVESTMENTS.


THE REST OF THE FAMILY: EVANGELINA (MOTHER), ELISA (SISTER) , IVAN (THE HUSBAND OF ELISA, AND MONTSERRAT (THE SON OF ALL ELISA) ARE ALL EMPLOYED BY THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION OF COAHUILA AND COLLECT CABINET LEVEL SALARIES ALTHOUGH ALL ARE LISTED AS DEPUTY SECRETARIES.

IN ADDITION THE GOVERNOR ASSIGNS TO THEM FINANCIAL RESOURCES IN THE MILLIONS OF PESOS TO BE USED AS OPERATING COSTS FOR THEIR DEPARTMENTS WITHOUT ANY OVERSIGHT OR INDEPENDENT AUDITING OF THOSE FUNDS.

THE GOVERNOR HAS BOUGHT A HOME IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS WORTH 6 NILLION DOLLARS AND ARGUES THAT IT BELONGS TO HIS WIFE WHO HE SAYS IS INDEPENDENTLY WEALTHY. THE GOVERNOR RECENTLY ACQUIRED AN EXECUTIVE LEARJET WORTH 4.5 MILLION DOLLARS, WHICH HE RENTS OUT TO THE GOVERNMRNT FOR HIS OWN TRAVE AND COLLECTS THE FUNDS.

HE OWNS RENTAL PROPERTIES ASPEN COLORADO, INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSES WORTH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, RANCHES, COUNTRY HOMES AND A FEED LOT FOR CATTLE.

IT IS NO WONDER THAT THE STATE GOVERNMENT STILL OWES 12 BILLION PESOS TO CONTRACTORS AND VENDORS FOR PUBLIC WORKS FINISHED OVER 3 YEARS AGO AND THREATENS REPRISALS AND CANCELLATION OF THE DEBTS IF THERE ARE ANY PUBLIC COMPLAINTS

WHY DO THE CITIZENS CONTINUE VOTING FOR THE PRI? DO YOU REALLY WANT THE PRI TO WIN THE NEXT ELECTIONS? WITH OUR MUNICIPALITIES ALREADY BANKRUPT?

HE IS POSITIONING HIS BROTHER RUBEN TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR TO CONTINUE CONCEALING HIS CORRUPTION AND MISMANAGEMENT.

ALTHOUGH WE ARE NOT MEMBERS OF ANY OPPOSITION WE WILL NEVER VOTE FOR THE PRI.

On its face I am begging to be the executioner...however these are words, where's the proof. I would not call myself a personal friend of this family but they have assisted my humanitarian work, and seem authentic having many projects that are not publicized. It is troubling that they say Vamessa is independantly wealthy,,,that is not true, but the cost of the S.A. home was not 6M,though the Co home may be. so I question the facts as presented. Please directy me to the proof I will be diligent as myself I would not take anything from people as discribed in this article. Help me prove/disprove this. Be bold but be honest.

Please post what you find. I know they have a home and would no doubt it is in the name of vanesa but I dispute it is 6M. I want to investagate but the author of the tirade posted with many accusations has not responded to my plea of proof. All the problems Mexico has we must work within the boundaries of truth in order to determine the enemy. I love Mexico and hate to see the distruction. If these allegations are true, this is a disater because Humberto is targeted for the PRI canidate for president...then all is lost. But I know how political parties are, no different thatn here, they make up a lot of shit the truth has no home in the political or government front of Mexico. It is so fucking sad & scary, this is the land of my ancestors and I fear this is our next combat war. It sounds over the top but I am there much of the time. Little boys want to be El chapo or La Barbie and little girls want to be with them. How can this war be won? I think it may too late. I predicted car bombs I also predicted they will use the disabled to strap explosive on and send them to targeted areas, all the tactics of terrorists, because they are the same, the sole difference is these people are in it for business purposes...lively hood the stakes are higher.

Simply google: Humberto Moreira Valdes corrupcion

you will find a history of allegations of abuse dating to his time as mayor of Saltillo.
Allegations, true, and given the nature of Mexican politics one should take with a grain of salt but when the allegations pass from mere generalizations such as with Governor Moreira well then these accusations have to be exposed to a wider audience.

read up on the statements of the bishop of Saltillo against the governors of Mexico. he did not exclude Moreira.

Thank you! BTW this is a horrible pic of the governor it made me laugh it has little resemblence, but good for the story.I just did a quick 20 min google check and not finiding much but will devote more time this weekend. Only thing I found was 6 articles that referred back to borderlandbeat in some way, also a contoversy of dead mine workers and comments of the governor about a border wall...pretty mild stuff. I am looking for hard facts..it will take time, but the authors of the piece about should have given direction of proof. This has persoanl importance to me so I will research diligently and post anything I find. Your comment that the bishop did not exclude Moreira is strange because he, the Bishop is friendly towards the family, not to formally be excluded does not always mean inclusion.

Can all the Mexicans get together in a massive but I mean massive email response to the Mexican senate specially to the corrupt Governor of Coahula about applying death penalty to the sick narco delinquents; Specially those that hurt innocents. Most of them are caught in action anyway with the proof in their hands. This will definitely make them think twice before getting into this business. The government wouldn’t spend money in feeding them and Mexico would be left only with honest people. Keeping the criminals in jail will never, never work in Mexico. They will keep corrupting policeman from jail and planning the killings from there. Is like walking in -circulos-they will get no where.

This corrupt governor seems not to do anything to help his state to be safe. What has he done to find who are the massive killers in these parties. Why isn’t he putting in jail all the policemen in the entire state and hire new people that go through lie detectors. Come on corrupt Moreira, everything gets paid back in this life do something to keep your state safe and apply death penalty in your state.
Also the senate should consider legalizing mariguana. Now California is considering that. They will have more tourist and the government will have more money. Look at Amsterdam, they are not doing bad at all. This can bring a lot of money to Mexico specially if they can include a very high tax pay when buying it. This will really affect the cartels as they will not have the same amount of income to keep buying the same armaments that they have.
It is obvious that the Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s anti drug’s plan is not working at it never will. I think it gets worse and worse. He will never win using the same tactics. HE NEEDS AMERICAN TROOPS THERE. HE NEEDS MORE HELP FROM THE USA. This is not a joke this inhuman moving objects will spill their terrorism and cruelties to the USA.
Also why they don’t have more trained dogs to detect drugs in the airports? How come in the Mexican border side there are not dogs to to check every single car why they don’t include more cameras in all of the Mexican streets?
The Mexican governors like this corrupt one from Coahuila and Felipe should start removing every single police of the cities. They are useless they are the cartels. Come on follow what Colombia did to win. Use your bain, be smart there are tacticts that work. There are just use them and the problem is solve. Peace be with mexicans.
Look at asia, what happends to the criminals or people that are related to the drug gans? The government there doesn’t waist time. They act using their brain and it WORKS!!

PLEASE ANY SMART POLITICIAN WHO WANTS TO BE REMEMBERED TO BE THE ONLY ONE TO GO TO HISTORY AS THE ONLY SMART MEXICAN POLITICIAN STOP BEEN CORRUPT AND MAKE JUSTICE TO THE CRIMINALS THE ENTIRE MEXICO IS BEGGING YOU. APPLY DEATH PENALTY TO CRIMINALS THAT HURT INNOCENTS

Our reality in Mexico is very sad . I am poor and can't find a good job, meanwhile this guys arenstealing our money from taxes and getting richer.

Life is not fair. Drug cartel thugs are very selfish, murderers, greedy with the money, and they think they are the powerful people in the country but they are not. No one was able to pull top drug traffickers out of the prisons, like Zambada Vicente Niebla - whose his father still cries for. God did not send the only good people to the earth, they sent the bad people too.
