El Grande says Maria and Arturo Beltran Leyva may have had an affair
Eager to strengthen the case of money laundering against Maria de los Angeles Pineda Villa, wife of the former municipal President of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, the Attorney General office (PGR) resorted to a controversial witness.
The witness is Sergio Villarreal Barragan, “El Grande”.
On December 11th SEIDO traveled to the Joe Corley detention center in Conroe Texas, to question Villarreal, the alleged drug trafficker, who said that the infamous woman had meetings with Arturo Beltran Leyva’ “El Barbas”
Additionally, he says, she managed the profits of her brothers Mario and Alberto Pineda Villa,” EL MP” and “El Borrado”, operators of the capo, both who were tortured and murdered for betraying Beltran.
Villarreal said that Maria de los Angeles went to parties, of the Beltran Leyva Cartel leaders and that she was straw man of ‘El Borrado”, in purchases of several Real estate holdings in the area of Tres Palos, Acapulco.
In 2013, the PGR agency informed a judge that it couldn’t prove the allegations that made by this witness, former command of the BLO, against the General Tomas Angeles Dauahare and other military, who he linked to organized crime.
Without corroborating they were then released.
In trials against the federal officers arrested in “Operation Clean”, judges and magistrates also determined the statements of Villarreal “unlikely” and “lacking truthfulness”, which is the reason why the majority of the defendants were released.
But in the criminal case 105/2014 on the third district court in penal processes of Toluca, against Pineda, PGR says that it does have credibility.
The trial for laundering money against Pineda Villa rests mainly on financial reports, specifically, from 2009 to 2014 she laundered 17,009,490 pesos in drug trafficking proceeds.
Sergio Villarreal said he was personally aware of Maria de los Angeles meeting, on at least on two occasions, with capo Arturo Beltran Leyva, “El Barbas”.
The first one, according to the testimony, was in a meeting on New Year’s Eve held in Cuernavaca morelos, near the military headquarters.
Although he said does not remember if that party was in 2007. “El Grande” said “El Barbas” was with his girlfriend, named Marcela, as well as his daughters and a sister in law.
Also “EL Borrado” attended with his wife and their two teenage children; ‘EL MP” with his wife Clarisa, and their two children, as well as Maria, the wife of the former mayor of Iguala. It appears former mayor Abarca was not in attendance.
The last time Villarreal says to have seen Maria de los Angeles was at the beginning of 2008 in Cholula Puebla, on the Birthday of the drug trafficker from Guerrero, Jesus Nava Romero, “El Rojo” Beltran’s most trusted person, who died with “El Barbas” (below) in Cuernavaca in December 2009, in an intense shootout with Mexican Marines.
She came with her brothers “El Borrado” and “El MP” to the party, held in celebration of “El Rojo’s birthday.
Arturo Beltran Leyva put his hand on the leg of Pineda’s Villa sister, making her blush, he danced several dances with her.
