Tomas Yarrington, ex Governor of Tamaulipas arrested in Italy

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from two Milenio articles and video from Riodoce

Subject Matter: Tomas Yarrington, Ex Governor of Tamaulipas, CDG, Los Zetas
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required.


Reporter: Ruben Mosso
The Ex Governor of Tamaulipas, Tomas Jesus Yarrington Ruvalcaba, was detained in Italy, he is required by the authorities of Mexico and the United States for allegedly receiving money from the Cartel del Golfo and Los Zetas.

In our country, there is an existing arrest warrant against the ex Governor for his alleged responsibility in crimes against health in his term in office.


The warrant was raised due to the interchange of information between the United States and Mexico in May of 2012, the United States Department of Justice presented two demands in Federal court to decomission properties of Yarrington which had presumably been acquired in Texas under false names and with funds of illicit origin.




Four months before, under the management of Marisela Morales Ibanez before the PGR, SEIDO consigned the expediency and the Judge conceded that order against the Tamaulipeco.

In November of 2016, the PGR offered a reward of 15,000,000 pesos for information that led to the capture of the ex Governor Tomas Yarrington.

The PGR informed that this Sunday, deriving from a collaboration of the Assistant Attorney General of International Affairs, the Criminal Investigation Agency, as well as the Governmental authorities of Italy, achieved the location and arrest of Yarrington.

The detention was achieved was achieved thanks to a red alert from Interpol, who applied an arrest warrant from the Judge of Federal Penal Processes in the Second District of Tamaulipas, for the crimes of organized crime, operations with gains from illicit purposes, among others.

It is hoped that the next few days he will be repatriated to our country for the Attorney General, in coordination with Italian authorities.



Tomas Yarrington Ruvalcaba, the ex Governor of Tamaulipas, was in the view of United States authorities for allegedly facilitating during his period in office, of the trafficking of drugs of the Cartel del Golfo and Los Zetas.

In 2012, the DEA accused the ex Governor of receiving payments on the part of the criminal groups to allow their operations, and of laundering this money in property estates in Texas.

Yarrington was Federal Deputy in 1991, Municipal President of Matamoros in 1992 and 1995, and Governor of Tamaulipas in 1999 to 2004, departing from the job in 2005, to concentrate on his job as an assessor.

In 2013, the magazine Forbes, published a list of the 10 most corrupt people in Mexico, Yarrington occupied 6th place, being just under Elba Esther Gordillo, ex leader of the SNTE; Carlos Romero Deschamps, leader of Pemex, Raul Salinas de Gotari; Genaro Garcia Luna, ex Secretary of Public Security and Andres Granier, ex Governor of Tabasco.

On the 2nd of December of that year, Yarrington was accused in Texas, United States, for supporting narco traffickers and accepting enormous payments, some months before in May, in the pending case.

Two months after, on 27th of February of 2014, a Federal Judge in Mexico denied the ex Governor an amparo against the arrest warrant solicited by the PGR, which allows him to be detained in Mexico and a further 189 countries.

In November of 2016, the PGR offered a reward of 15,000,000 pesos for information leading to the detention of the ex Governor and on 16th of December of the same year, the PRI, of whom he was a member, expelled him from their ranks.

Today the PGR informed that Yarrington was detained in Italy, at the request of Mexican and United States authorities

    1. Yarrington gets expatriated to mexico, and the case will get dismissed there, if he gets sent to US, he will be punished with a slap on his hands, but he loses "his money and properties" and sovereign impunity because of his being a foreign "dignitary".

I agree with Zacatecas...i doubt that Europe cares much for the brown-as-a-bag weed and the poor excuse for cut down cocaine that cdg and z distribute.. that shit is only sought after in the RGV area.. no one else cares for that garbage.. I'm from Torreon and truth is that while CDS was running things the quality of the blow over there was amazing .. once cdg/z moved in and started selling little baggies it became a hit or miss to find good shit because you have CDS, CDG, and Z selling .. if it's that bad south of the border.. i can only imagine the garbage that is sold up north.. face it bola de jotos.. CDG/Z can not and will not ever compare to Sinaloa when it comes to straight pushing dope.. not in quality .. and not in volume

      Obviously all the good stuff is shipped abroad. Torreon drug users don't have the purchase power to spend hundreds of dollars or euros a day on drugs. And yes, CDG moves afghan/Asian heroin whether you like it or not.

  21. This bastard will get back to Mexico, hire the best defense lawyers money can buy and end up bribing a federal judge to grant him an amparo releasing him from a Mexican prison for some BS reason. He still has millions hidden away in European banks that his family can access on his behalf. I'm hopeful that Mexico extradites his ass to the U.S. so he can face a justice system that doesn't have "amparos" available. He and a few other Mexican politicians need to feel what it's like to be in a prison system where his political connections cannot help him. It's way overdue too for both governments to track down and seize the money he stole and was paid by drug cartels. POS

    1. Perfect solution and response. There is always that probability that any justice can not be adhered to in what many are aware of Mexicos corruption within.
      Having him extradited to US is by all means the only way justice can truly be applied.
      I think the US is definitely working its diplomatic ties for this to happen.

    2. El bertie boy moreiro went to mexico, released by spain for some unexplained reason, I suspect spain got a few more billion dollars in "pemex contracts" and exhoneration for spain's "oceania" to release his putas nalgas, now he is about to become a federal congressman to be free from prosecution for a few more years until his charges run out of time, then, maybe, become a federal senator or a "presidential candidate", who knows?

    3. @1:02AM While I don't always agree with your conclusions or some of your conspiracy theories, you usually have your facts right. This time tho you missed. Moreiro is not about to become a federal congressman. He is trying to get the nomination as candidate for the state legislature.

  33. My assumption was correct as to American extradition! Mexico is handing him over to the United States of America for arraignment.
    Definitely a win a win for justice for the Mexican citizens.
    Intelligence officials will be gathering intel from him jf he expects leniency. Rest assured many corrupt associates governments officials will not be thrilled.
    Keep bringing them America is more than happy to oblige accommodations.

    1. @7:36 You are correct. If you look back over the last 2 years and see the tremendous changes taking place it looks like the government (PRI) is trying to clean up corruption and eliminate the cartels.

      But I don't think it has anything to do with trying to make the country better or not wanting to "bite the hand" that feeds them.

      I think it has more to do with the upcoming 2018 elections. With EPN's popularity polls at historic low numbers and the anger of the people getting louder, PRI knows that if it doesn't want to erased from electoral politics it has to project a vastly different image to the electorate. And that is exactly what it is, a image.

    4. You do make a point DD as far as the PRI cleaning up there act . Rather a show for its constituents. However, I do believe that Mexico has and is still bending over to United States interests. Being that this previous American elections have put a thorn on Mexicos economic future.
      Extraditions of cartel bosses and government officials have been carried out with ease. I truly believe that Mexico is trying to sway friendship and cooperation towards the US.
      The reality of what I see is that NAFTA and deportations of undocumented citizens will severely damage Mexicos economy. Added with the mass deportations and the remittance of currency migrants send to Mexico.
      Despite talks with China and European countries and Russia for trade relations, Such an economic endeavor will take years to be fully implemented.
      Putting Mexico in a deep recession.
      So that's why it's important for Mexicos government to not let such things happen.
      Vested interests.
      Moreover my belief is that Mexico will continue to bend over backwards rather than take the necessary steps to be self sufficient.

  37. @6:55 yes, what you said, but these things are messy, one gangster might be pumping cash into a certain politician's slushy fund, but across the way some other politician is getting stoked with Jack by that same gangster's enemy. Until ALL are without sin shit's gonna be fucked up everywhere. It is pointless to try and make sense of the Mexican drug war based on counting or even id'ing the bodies. (Also why the cops and military never leave living people behind in their ops, when they apply the coup de grace they are destroying evidence) All of this is the central tragedy of the Mex drug war, imo.
