El Taliban of Los Zetas sentenced to 30 years in prison in the United States

Reporter: Juan Alberto Cedillo
Micaela Alvarez, Federal Judge from Laredo, Texas, dictated a sentence of 30 years prison for Ivan Valezquez Caballero, El Taliban, ex plaza boss of Los Zetas in the North East of Mexico, for the crimes of narco trafficking and money laundering.

Vazquez Caballero, 47 years old, rose up the ranks of Los Zetas with Miguel Trevino Morales, a ruthless criminal in the Mexican border town of Nuevo Laredo accused of ordering killings in the United States, and mass killings in Mexico, said the San Antonio Express newspaper.

It was said that while Trevino lead the criminal organization, before being arrested in 2013, Velazquez became an informant for the Federal Drug Administration ( DEA ), eventually testifying against Francisco Colorado Cessa, a Veracruz businessman who helped Los Zetas to launder money buying quarter mile horses in US territory.




Velazquez and Trevino are defendants in a broad case of conspiracy of drug trafficking against the leaders of Los Zetas in Nuevo Laredo between 2001 and 2008.

The indictment alleges that Trevino ordered men on both sides of the border to carry out murders, but El Taliban was not accused by anyone of these violent crimes, although previously he had already been found guilty of the crimes of drug trafficking and money laundering.

Before his capture, El Taliban provoked the first great split in Los Zetas that would end with the change of name to Cartel de Noreste (CDN).

As plaza boss he separated from the organization taking Los Zetas cells of the plazas in Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas and Coahuila.

    2. Tomorrow? 30 years is still about 25.5 IF he gets a year off for drug program.

    3. These are state indictments and charges, not Federal,
      so he may be sentenced for 30 years, however, he will
      only do 10-15 years. If he behaves in prison, that is.
      Also, he helped the Feds out a lot with his testimony,
      so there is more to it then we citizens know about it.
