Pardon for the Sinaloa brothers facing death in Malaysia

Posted by Siskiyou kid on BB Forum

We have extensive information from back posts.  Use the search bar.  The big operators in this bust including a Mexican national, never spent time in prison and were allowed to be free and leave the country.  I always thought these brothers were caught up in a servitude scheme known to exist in Asia, recruiting poor people in various countries for high paying jobs and training, once there, they are sold into what amounts to slave labor....Chivis




The deaths sentences against three Mexican brothers convicted of drug trafficking in Malaysia have been commuted to prison terms, a lawyer said Friday.

Lawyer Hisyam Teh Poh Teik said the prison department confirmed the sentences had been commuted by the state sultan on March 26.


They are serving new sentences of 30 years in prison, starting from the date of the royal pardon. Teh was one of two lawyers for the brothers during their trial but said he didn’t handle their bid for a royal pardon.

The brothers from Mexico’s Sinaloa state were arrested at a secluded Malaysian drug factory in 2008 and said they had been cleaning the place.

 Police found more than 29 kilograms (63 pounds) of methamphetamine at the factory.

Malaysia’s High Court convicted the brothers — Jose Regino, Simon and Luis Alfonso Gonzalez Villarreal — of drug trafficking in May 2012. The crime carries a mandatory penalty of death by hanging.

Their appeals to higher courts had failed with the country’s top federal court upholding the death sentences in 2015.

Sinaloa state is the cradle of Mexico’s drug trade, but the brothers had no criminal record at home. They had worked making and selling bricks in Mexico, and their family said the brothers left for a job opportunity abroad and there were no signs they were involved in the drug trade.

The Sultan of [the Malaysian state of] Johor has commuted the death sentences of three Mexican brothers who were set to be hanged for drug trafficking crimes, Mexico said.

Father of the men 
After years of lobbying by Mexican diplomats, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar of Johor commuted the men’s death sentences to life in prison, Mexico’s foreign ministry said Thursday.

“This was the result of a long process and intense dialogue with Malaysian federal authorities,” it said in a statement.

The brothers – Simon, Luis Alfonso and Jose Regino Gonzalez Villarreal – were arrested in a raid on a methamphetamine lab in Johor in March 2008.

The brothers, who hail from the Mexican state of Sinaloa – home to jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel – insisted they were innocent, saying they had been hired to clean the building and were unaware what was being made inside.

But a Malaysian court sentenced them to hang to death in May 2012. The conviction was upheld on appeal the following year.

Mexico, which does not use capital punishment, neither accepted nor rejected the court’s guilty verdict, but pushed for the death sentence to be commuted.

  3. Its hard to understand this scenario if they are really victims . To see this like they say you really have to turn a blind eye to everything else in the world and accept what they are saying . I come closer to believing they were duped into cooking dope for some evil bastards and didn't understand the extent of the risk but still knew . Really now theres a lot of people closer than mexico they could get . It kinda like they guy that got caught by his wife in bed with her sister . "Baby , are you gonna believe me or your lying eyes.

  4. The story is unclear. Death wentence commuted to life is still no picnic. Are they still in Indonesia or in Mexico and just sentenced in absentia?

  10. Pray tell...
    WHY would someone wish to import Mexicanos to sweep the floor? Do you know how much airfare costs from Mexico to Malaysia times 3? This stinks. Gathering women for the sex trade might be plausible. This isn't. Only a fool would buy into it. Sorry

    1. That is a silly statement...the government has warnings of these "foreign employments" they use them for everything thing needed. the brothers were taken to taiwan first and sold to malay. passports are taken away and they have no money. We have lived and operated our business in asia for decades. this is what happens. the mexican big who brought them to asia was allowed to leave the country.

  11. Mexico is a country that needs the death penalty and anyone who says I’m wrong is simply content with how lawless and pathetic Mexico currently is.

  12. If you think government corruption is rampant in Mexico think again. Asia is on a whole other level. Everything has a price. They paid a pretty penny for their freedom, bet that.

  14. Facking sultan must be the owner of the business, there is nothing else going on in Malaysia that makes more money for the government.
    Any more information on the people that were let go? Business class are very esteemed there, unlike their servants whose mere social status makes them eligible for death as in the country of "el loco" Duterte, himself a drug addict.

  15. Being from Sinaloa state anyone that knows a little about the drug trade in Mexico would definately have some doubts as to the innocence of these guys for Sinaloa is like the Italy of Mexico. Drug dealers roam free there in other words.
    These guys got lucky big time that they are only serving 30 year prison sentences!!!

    1. Sinaloa is the Italy of Mexico? You might want to seriously reevaluate that statement bud. Sinaloa is a state Italy is a country. Besides if we were making comparisons a better one would be sinaloa is the Sicily of Mexico. See I fixed it for you buddy
