Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat republished from Noreste

Suspected of killing DEA agent, prisoner since 1989, the 72-year-old Sinaloa capo, affected by some psychiatric-psychological disorders, has filed an injunction to be granted house arrest


The Second Unitary Criminal Court in Mexico City, ordered Horacio Óscar Rosete Mentado, Eighth District Judge in Federal Criminal Proceedings in the capital of the Republic, to review a series of medical studies carried out by Sinaloan drug trafficker Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, alias “El Padrino” ("The Godfather") -founder of the first drug cartel in Mexico, in Guadalajara-, and assess whether or not house arrest should be granted.

The capo has been imprisoned since April 1989, in the el Reclusorio Sur de la Ciudad de México, of Mexico City, as well as Cefereso No. 1 "El Altiplano", in Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico, and more recently in the Federal Center of Psychosocial Rehabilitation (Ceferepsi), in Morelos, for some psychiatric-psychological disorders.

In his reign he controlled drug trafficking in Mexico as well as all corridors.

He remains wanted in the United States for the kidnapping and Murder of DEA agent Kiki Camarena, among other offenses.
