Mexico City .- A federal judge ordered the release of José Alfredo Cárdenas Martínez, alias "El Contador", on grounds that his detention last Monday in Matamoros, Tamaulipas was illegal and the Marines lied about his capture.

According to sources from the federal government, his wife and legal defense team of the nephew of Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, the former leader of the Gulf Cartel, presented videos showing that he was arrested inside his own house and not on the street, as was stated by the Marines.



Last Monday, the agency reported in a statement that the detention of Cardenas Martínez was achieved in an operation, after getting knowledge of the location of a home where a group of armed persons was located.

"Naval personnel went to the area and when arriving near the home, the group of armed people, became aware of  the presence of naval elements and fled in different directions.  It should be noted that in this action they arrested  José Alfredo 'N' , ie Cardenas Martinez "El Contador" who allegedly is the leader of a criminal organization in that region, " the official explained.

The predawn raid and subsequent arrest was carried out with out a bullet being fired. Confiscated from "El Contador's" property were two military grade weapons, ammunition , a vehicle and some marijuana and cocaine.

"El Contador," alleged cartel head of the cartel in Matamoros, was transferred to the El Altiplano prison in Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico, which he could now leave at any time.

According to information from the US DEA, the capo, also known as "El Sobrino", became one of the leaders of the Gulf Cartel after the arrest of Osiel Cárdenas Guillén which occurred on March 14, 2003, also in Matamoros, by elements of the Mexican Army and the Attorney General's Office , the PGR. Antonio Cardenas Guillen was killed by Mexican security forces in 2010.

"El Contador" headed a fraction of the Gulf Cartel in dispute against the group of Luis Alberto Blanco Flores, alias "El M28" or "Comandante Pelochas", from Rio Bravo.

On March 7, 2005, the Mexican Government granted the extradition of Osiel Cárdenas Guillén, however, his delivery was not immediate. He was finally extradited to the United States on January 19, 2007, where he faced 19 charges in a court in Houston, Texas.

In July 2009, during his trial, Cárdenas Guillen pleaded guilty to one drug charge, one for money laundering, and three for extortion and attempted murder of US federal agents.

In exchange for pleading guilty, the former leader of the Gulf Cartel had removed another 12 charges for drug trafficking in 2010, and was sentenced to 25 years in prison, as well as a fine of $50 million dollars.

Last April, an investigation conducted by the Dallas Morning News, indicated that the guilty plea agreed between Cárdenas Guillen and the US government caused "a violent rupture" between the El Golfo and Los Zetas cartels, his former armed executioners and paramilitary forces.

Faced with this, the Zetas - already an autonomous criminal group - began to fight for the territory with the Gulf Cartel, which led to the death of thousands of people in Mexico and along the border with Texas, the newspaper said.

Remnants of the Gulf and Zetas Cartels have been pitted against the breakaway faction now called Cartel de Noreste. The thousands of resulting deaths include not only gangsters but police and civilians.

According to the DEA, the Gulf Cartel has lost steam and in recent years, in addition to the trafficking of marijuana and cocaine, it has expanded into the market for heroin and methamphetamine, whose main destinations are the US cities of Houston, Detroit and Atlanta.

  7. Every rape, every murder, every death, the citizens of Mexico are responsible for. They have allowed for their country to be completely over run by criminals, thieves and killers, that there is now no way to fix the damage. Mexico is now forever a Narco Controlled country. You men that watch your daughters and wives being brutally raped and murdered don’t even deserve to live. You are cowards of the highest order. You even allow your sons to be nothing more than objects for the cartels to kill. All while you tap your little botas to the newest narco corridors and drink down the suds on a Corona. Some people do really get what they deserve. You are perfect examples of that.

    7. As long as poor Mexico blames all problems on the Yankees, shit won’t change. Keep blaming policy that most couldn’t comprehend if they read the papers it was based on. Not shooting up my place, I can shoot back. How about you? When the “insert cartel name here” fuerzas especiales come to your home, and it turns out to be mainly methed out teens used as fodder, or they couldn’t function. The jefe’s still have to pretend to be honest cops during the day.

    8. 5:32 not all the "yankees" are a bunch of criminals, you get easier and faster to the root of the problem by finding the foreign policy architects that sentenced Mexico to the results of financing power and impunity for those involved in the militarization of police operations against other American puppeteer's narcos in mexico...very few and select those architects of foreign US Policy for Latin America or the world for that case...even American citizens don't know about them.

  14. Since only 2% of every Mexican that is arrested actually goes to prison this corrupt judge is typical of this third world country. Once this judge confirmed his million dollar mordida was transferred in his family member's account, he issued the release.

  15. I Dont understand how we (the U.S.) will manipulate governments for the interests of the U.S., however wont recognize Mexican cartels as narco terrorists sanctioned by the Mexican government. At a minimum, the U.S. should stop the multi million drug war funding provided to Mexico since we know that the Mexican government is extremely corrupt.

    2. Do a little research, cases in the US have been dismissed because of technicalities. The difference in the US is that 5000 pesos ain’t gonna get you shit.

    4. This may happen in the states court in the US.. Very rarely in the Federal courts. The majority of drug cases in the US are prosecuted without any drugs being found at all. A grand jury will hear evidence in a conspiracy, often time's its just a few people cooperating with the same story, and a conspiracy indictment is issued. you have less the 2% chance of beating the case.

    5. Why is it that it's extremely rare that drug lords from the U.S to get busted? The so called war on drugs needs to start on U,S soil. Imagine how fast drugs would disappear... Oh I forgot, the war on drugs is a sham...

  22. In 2008 Mexico amended its constitution and they've since adopted a prosecutorial system similar to the U
    S. system, based on probable cause, evidence, open trials, etc. They still haven't gotten the probable cause and evidence bits down: the Mexican fed prosecutors went to court claiming his car was pulled over, they found weapons, drugs, etc. The defense showed a video from his home security system of him being dragged out of his house.

    The judge suppressed the evidence and tossed the case.

    It will be hilarious if he sues and wins $$ in a civil suit for violation of his civil rights.

    C'est la Vie.

  23. It's like probable cause in the usa. The soldiers had no warrant and no probable cause . It's basic law enforcement. Everyone knows where to find this guy. The marines just jumped the gun. They should of followed procedure. Even if his body guards ran, he didn't run he was inside his house. No judge in Tamaulipas will sign an arrest warrant for this clown. By now he probably has an amparo. This guy in the map a long time use to live in Brownsville TX and American agencies never went after him either.
