After only 5.5 years Esther Gordillo is free

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat



On Tuesday at11:30 pm the First Unitary Court in Criminal Matters in Mexico City decreed the dismissal of the criminal case that until yesterday kept Elba Esther Gordillo Morales under house arrest.   Gordillo, who is also known in Mexico as “La Chucky”,   is already with her family, after 5 years and 6 months of capture.  She was accused of organized crime and laundering of 1,978 million pesos. She was the national chief of Education.

Mexico’s attorney general has accused Gordillo of illegally funneling $160 million from the National Union of Education Workers into U.S. and European bank accounts.

She spent a couple of years in prison until being granted house arrest due to “medical issues”.

The 73-year-old former education leader plans to reappear in public on August 20, according to a press conference by lawyer Marco Antonio del Toro Carazo, who read a statement written by Gordillo Morales.

"I need a period to privately assimilate the emotions. Therefore I have decided not to have any contact with any national or foreign media.”


It is an amazing coincidence that she is declared free right before midnight on the day before AMLO is declared president elect.

  4. Similar like here in the US. I have read about companies and individuals committing fraud in the billions of dollars to only get 5, 8, or 12 years. Ridiculous when many people loose their entire life savings and these criminals only get a few years.
    I think only Madoff got more than 100 years. Everyone else less than 15 years.

    1. Difference here is that the money and property they have is confiscated. In Mexico a lot of the time is just left for them and their families to enjoy when they get out.

    3. TexMex - Well ill tell you exactly why Madoff got fucked... He stole from the rich. Had he stole from the poor he would have got off like all those other banker scumbags that crashed the economy in 2007-2008.

    4. The rich got royally screwed because they GAMBLED. Investments should always be spread out. Not placed in one basket. Madoff proved to the world that even the rich and educated can be swindled.

    1. they did not allow her to have house arrest in one of her mansions, i think she was with her daughter. But now she can go where ever she wishes

    2. So does that mean i can go to Coronado now and get La Chucky to autograph my dried up tortilla?

    3. Chivas, I believe she was in her own penthouse in Roma - a very nice one at that. The very best that the teacher's union dues could afford for her.....

  7. Here is a self fulfilling fill in the blank, I would hope would suffer the fate Griselda Blanco suffered after her return to Columbia or even a public stoning. Has there been any restitution of the stolen funds?

  8. No justice....as usual in Mexico....impunity and immunity then release after dismissal. (That is after all the right paws were compensated)

  9. The Sinembargo headline says it all:
    LA DETUVIERON EN CUANTO LLEG脫 EPN, LA DEJAN IR AHORA QUE SE VA: ELBA ESTHER GORDILLO EST脕 LIBRE

    She was detained when Pe帽a Nieto arried, and was left to go now that he's leaving.

  18. Her family and old friends in the sindicate actively campaigned for AMLO, He began moderating his stance against her to the point of not even mentioning her and the damage she did to education. Now, with EPN about to leave, and AMLO promising to forget past crimes and have a new begining(borron y cuenta nueva as he said), I´m sure his pal EPN released her so as not to have AMLOs government releasing her and giving a bad image. EPN and AMLO are a PRIMOR.(PRI-MORENA)

  21. Damn 5.5 years already? I remember when she was arrested! Gees This went to quick for me through her back in for another 5.5 years and will see how I feel then.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can AMLO do anything to address such injustices? Why do I have such a feeling of hopelessness?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Weak amlo will re-install her to her position. She gets to keep her mansions, real estate and stolen funds. No hope for Mx. Same old Sh*t different day.

  24. An honest educator wrongly accused! Reminds me of a poor farmer named Chapo!

    1. 8:49 she used to be good looking in her youth, as a matter of fact she used her charms to get to lead the teachers union, throwing her benefactors to the curb on her way up...
      --there are other rompecolchones like Rosario Robles who says she is "as honest as EPN"

      Delete
  26. Did she sell votes to AMLO in exchange for freedom?
