|Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez " El Menchito "|
Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez " El Menchito " , son of the leader of the Cartel Jalisco Neuva Generacion
Ruben Oseguera Cervantes " El Mencho " , regained his liberty for the second occasion, after a Federal Judge in Toluca ordered his release with a condition that after two months of freedom under a restriction order , he would regain legal status.
Last Friday , a District Federal Judge from the Federal Criminal Proceedings Court in the State of Jalisco declared an auto decree of freedom for " El Menchito " , due to lack of elements ( evidence )to process in favour of the 24 year old, who faced charges of crimes against health , and violation of the Federal Law against weapons and explosives.
That same day 26th December , " El Menchito " left the prison Centro Federal de Readaptacion Social numero 2 " Occidente" , en Puente Grande , Jalisco , where he had arrived directly from Centro de Arraigo ( Central Base ) of the Procuraduria General de La Republica (PGR)in Mexico Federal District on the 18th December.
Sources at the PGR gave the news of the release of " El Menchito " , however they didn't say that he was first acquitted in the State of Mexico, where he was charged with offences of possession of fire arms and ammo for exclusive use of the Govt Forces, using resources of illegal origin , and crimes against health.
ZETA investigations , exposed that before he was liberated , on the 16th October 2014 " El Menchito " left the maximum security prison Altiplano No 1 , in Almoloya de Juarez , but Federal Police Agents were already waiting to transfer him to SEIDO Headquarters.
The Public Prosecutors office applied for a restriction warrant from a Judge of the second Federal Criminal Court , who specialises in searches , retstrictions and intervention of communications with jurisdiction through out Mexico. He granted the restriction against " El Menchito" within the record , while integrating the preliminary investigation.
SEIDO requested an extension of the precautionary measure on 27th November, it was granted once again by a special Judge. The Federal prosecutor ordered the lifting of the restriction on December 18th, when there was already an arrest order with warrant issued by a District Judge from Jalisco. Then " El Menchito " and a co-defendant were transferred to the Puente Grande Cerefeso , from where he gained his freedom.
"El Menchito " was detained in a residence in Zapopan on 30th of January 2014 by the Military Authorities, the PGR said that " El Menchito" was responsible for coordinating the sale and trafficking of drugs coming from South America , as well as fuel theft . Some of the charges were dismissed through lack of evidence , and others not even reason of imputation. It was a double failure of ministerial authority.
Spike: yet another example of the unprofessionalism of the Mexican police departments in their various guises , and the willingness of Mexican judges to accept bribes to free even the most heinous of criminals.
