CAF: Eduardo Arellano Felix Extradicted to the US

Borderland Beat


 (AFN). - Eduardo Arellano Felix, the last of the kingpins of that family who was arrested in Tijuana  in 2008, was extradited to the U.S. and, as confirmed by the prosecutor Laura E. Duffy, head of the Southwest District of California. Arellano Felix will face charges of racketeering money laundering and drug trafficking among other crimes.
 55 years old and known as "The Doctor", Arellano Felix was handed over by the government of Mexico that he, like his brothers and other members of this organization, will face accountability  for their criminal actions, which cost many lives.
In announcing this action Duffy recalled that Arellano Felix was arrested by Mexican authorities in Tijuana, on October 25, 2008. As reported at the time by AFN, the drug dealer was finally arrested after an intense firefight.  He was hiding in a residential area called Lomas del Pedregal, next to the Buena Vista ramp. The luxury residence still shows signs of that battle. 
Duffy said that in 2010 the U.S. government obtained a final order of extradition of drug lord, however spent two years fighting the appeals by the defense.
She said the first hearing is scheduled for next Tuesday, September 4, in the District Court of the United States in San Diego, before Judge Barbara Lynn Major.
Duffy thanked the Mexican government and said that extradition achieved, is an important step in the efforts of the U.S. government "to bring another key figure in the Arellano Felix organization (to) justice  in an U.S. court on these charges ".
 Lanny A. Breuer, of the Justice Division of the Department of State also considered this extradition as a "milestone" in the fight against Mexican drug cartels and took the opportunity to thank the Criminal Division's Office of International Affairs "for their tireless work to help ensure that Eduardo Arellano Felix and many of his co-conspirators in the United States, face justice.”
Meanwhile, William R. Sherman, special agent in charge of the DEA, said that the extradition of Eduardo Arellano Felix the day "marks the end of 20 years of investigation" by the counternarcotics agency against this drug cartel. He also said that this action shows that the DEA and law enforcement colleagues, will relentlessly pursue these traffickers until they are brought to justice.
 Another intercession of the authorities, who helped to make this event successful, was the result of Daphne Hearn, FBI Special Agent in San Diego, who said that agency was pleased with Mexico's efforts to bring to justice the leader "of one of the most violent criminal organizations in our history." He stressed the spirit of cooperation between the two countries, as a powerful force to disrupt the criminal activities of these groups that spread fear and threat to the security of citizens in the border regions of the United States.
 The U.S. attorney's office noted that the Arellano Felix, has been one of the most notorious multinational drug organizations that controlled the flow of cocaine, marijuana and other drugs into the United States through the Mexican border cities Tijuana and Mexicali from Colombia and Southern Mexico.
 In its indictment against the brothers, the U.S. government said Eduardo Arellano was doing business with an illegal enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity (RICO), conspiracy to import and distribute cocaine and marijuana and money laundering.
 It is noted that the leaders of this organization negotiated directly with Colombian cocaine traffickers to purchase several tons of cocaine, receiving shipments by sea and air in Mexico.
The cartel then  organized cocaine smuggling to the United States and subsequent distribution throughout the United States.
His brothers, Benjamin and Francisco Javier, serving sentences in the United States after having been found guilty of charges of racketeering, drug trafficking and money laundering. Benjamin received a deal negotiated with U.S. prosecutor’s office exchange for his guilty plea.
The case of Eduardo Arellano Felix was investigated by agents of the DEA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Criminal Investigation Service of the IRS.  The case now is transferred to  the Special Prosecutor Southwest District of California and other authorities.

  9. Sweet! Let him rot in prison. I would gladly pay more in taxes if it helped to house more of these scum in prison for life. I would rather pay for a bullet fired in the heat of a dynamic apprehension attempt by that Mexican authorities. You could consider it an ounce of prevention instead of a pound of cure.

  10. Of all the hermano's Eduardo was w/out a doubt the Low Man on the Totem Pole..! He was the last one standing after "El Tiger" was picked off on the yacht between TJ and San Diego. Until
    "El Tiger" was busted, poor Edourdo was the "Gofer" for the AFO. If he wasn't related via blood they wouldn't have trusted him at all
    with Anything Imprtant..! He was too eratic becasue he was and is BiPolar! and had a bad temper towards everybody as well as was a loner.
    He was happy to stay on the sidelines, get his cut of the profits and stay out of the limelight. Then his sister "Enedina" the real
    "El Jefe" told him to get off his ass and be a man cuz she was tired of her and her son doing all the real work it takes to run that outfit..!
    Didn't really matter because he got busted within two years.

    Where does it say that? I keep re-reading the article and nothing like what you describe is anywhere. What I do read is that the DEA has been after this guy for 20 years, wow. This man has paid for allot of doughnuts and powerpoint slides.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Funny that Javier got more time than Benja, and Eduardo will probably get a smaller sentence as well. Both the Mexican and US public deserve to hear the full story of AFO crimes and atrocities, yet everything got swept under the rug in secrecy, same with Osiel.

  14. I bet Duffy and her team of "skirt-wearing prosecutors" plead him to a $100 fine and 6 months work furlough.

  18. There is something fishy here: how come these guys which are supposed to be responsible for so much mayhem is ONLY charged with "racketeering, drug trafficking and money laundering" (like his brothers). How come? What about murders and kidnappings? That's where the death penalty comes in. Why is he allowed to escape this?

  20. And the same old story plays again...

    Another "milestone"

    Another "major victory in the war on drugs"

    Give me a fuckin break. So sick of hearing this tired old crap. War on drugs is a complete failure from every single possible standpoint. These watered down politicians keep regurgitating the same old crap and the voters keep voting for the same empty suits. What a nation of cowards we have become.

  21. When is Mexico going to extradite Erick Holder, for being the boss of those who gave 2000 guns to Mexico? Well then, they would have to go after Obama as well for using his executive order (hey, the guy thinks he's a king and above the constitution) to block all the emails and paperwork they asked for over a year ago. We get your criminals, you can have ours!

    On another note, that guys hair plugs all fell out. That Dr better run and hide!

  23. I feel sorry for him, and Benjamen, they are old and tired, and are going to live the rest of their lives very uncomfortably. I read Edaurdo didn't do much either, just kind of a old Uncle good for some advice or a quick conversation. Supposedly, Inge was with him minutes before he was detained, and the picture they use of him is from El Doctors house. That was the closest they came to grabbing him. He was also somewhat of a recluse, he was burned badly in an accident in the 80's, I think.

  28. Why is it so hard to understand that the drug war is scam? Legalize drugs and you effectively end the cartels.

    Any up for a true debate on the issue?

  29. Hi 6:18 PM Sept. 1,

    As we have seen daily for some years already those involved in the drug business (Mexican Drug Cartels) will do ANYTHING to keep their 'business' going and if drugs are legalized THOSE selling the legalized drugs will be targeted ¿don't you think? They will be 'taken out' without much delay. I wouldn't want to be the one selling the legal drugs in Mexico.

    But if the drug illegal business did come to a major halt crime would still continue as seen with the current practice of targeting business people for quotas: "give us cash and you live otherwise you'll soon be a dead man!" And there are kidnappings.

  30. Certainly should be legalized for a starters. Won't fix it all-gotten fix the corruption.
    greedy Mexican drug cartels = greedy infiltrated Mexican government

    They care more about making the shit loads of money than they do their own struggling hardworking struggling citizens

  31. Yea it took them what 20 years of investigation. On just one drug lord when there still millions of "druglords" out there in all corners of the earth. They feel proud that they cought one?? Haha 5 more sprang up for every one they catch or kill. Tryn to fight drug dealers is as dum as tryn to fight terrorism. We cant get high cause we would rebel against the real threat. The domestic terrorist who control the worlds wealth and that see us as nothing more than expendeble objects

  33. Hello 7:38,

    Your argument for continuing the drug war is not logical. If drugs were legalized, then every store on every corner would sell them, including walmart. The price would be very low, and the criminal element would be taken out of the equation. The drug war hasn't stopped anyone from using drugs.

    If your theory has any validity, then why didn't the same thing happen when the prohibition of alcohol was ended in the U.S.? Organized crime controlled alcohol sales during the prohibition period, just like the cartels do with drugs currently. Now you can buy that terrible adictive drug called alcohol everywhere legally. So what's your explanation?

      Thank you. I'm clapping my hands in spirit. So often people who see decriminalization/legalization of narcotics as the only true solution to this mess get deemed 'lazy stoners' 'or nihilists'...that is such a fallacy. We are simply realists who have enough faith in people to make their own decisions without the government choosing our path for us. We don't see justice in a never ending war that is draining money and destabilizing nations. The prohibitionists are naive and always neglect to acknowledge that the concept of prohibiting substances is only about 100 years old and a roundly miserable failure. Some will choose drugs...others won't. It doesn't have to be this way...we have created monsters and now we have to make it better. Legalizatioon is the only answer.

  34. Let him suffer maximum punishment in this world. Today I watched National Geographic documentary film named Inside: Tijuana Drug Lords. I recommend you to watch this, if you didn't watch yet. Viewer discretion is advised: This video contains violence which is not recommended for young users. You can watch this documentary film from the site itself.

    1. Nerd...what was so shocking? At least when caf were in power you could go to Mexico to get a taco and a drink without fearing being kidnapped and thrown into a dog kennel. I think that if they insist on keeping drugs illegal, we should at least be more pragmatic about what bad guys to play ball with. Now we have psychos running the game. I long for the days old crooks like this guy's family were dominant.
