Chivis Martinez -thank you Sol Prendido- from Loba Indomaable and Luisa

Graphic images includes Z12 Zetas founder made up as a female
They leave narcomensaje with human head even side of the Church in front of the Tamatan Prison; it is possible that it is the head of Luis Reyes Enríquez alias "El Rex or Z-12, who recently were left parts of his remains in the penalties

CDN killed Zetas founder, Luis Reyes Enríquez alias "El Rex or Z-12. This occurred shortly after he arrived at the Nuevo Laredo prison.  Nuevo Laredo is a strong hold of CDN.  They then stole the body from a funeral parlor, after being released to the family from SEFEMO. 

Family members are reported to have been at the funeral parlor when the body snatching occurred.

Next they dismembered the corpse and spread the body parts at three prisons, with cartulina messages and leaving the decapitated head at the side of a church.  The final atrocity is a vile slide show video released by CDN [Cartel del Noreste], depicting his dead body, later in the slide show his decapitated head is on display in a foam chest, with his head in full make up and a ladies pinkish headband.

These sicko psychopaths have a level of sociopathy that goes beyond revenge killing, or settling of scores.

El Chapo Trial: Chupeta, the man with two faces

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat-With material from, BB's Mica, Pacer, transcript, BB archives 

Who is Chupeta?


Colombian drug trafficker Juan Carlos Ramírez Abadía, aka Chupeta,  takes the witness stand as the third cooperative witness.

Arguably he is best known for the plastic surgery.
 Oh yes, the surgeries.  He has undergone four aesthetic operations that, after changing his nose, cheekbones, eye contour and chin, he is rendered unrecognizable, from his former self... except for the fingerprints.  He was left unrecognizable in a horrific way.  What remains is a grotesque mass of flesh, occupying where his handsome face once was.

I always wondered if the surgeon lived much longer after the surgery.

The 55 year old Chupeta was arrested in Brasil in 2007.

El Chapo Trial: Prosecution not liking defense tweets and facial expressions

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat-Op Ed


Today the prosecution filed a complaint, docket number 472, complaining about defense attorney’ Eduardo Balarezo’s tweets, and the facial expression by defense attorney Ms. Mariel Colon-Miro, during her Spanish language interview with Telemundo.  She was describing the difficulties Chapo is experiencing with no contact consultations or visitations, even with his attorneys.  She apparently used a “forlorn expression” while speaking about the emotional hardship of these special measures and how he misses his family.

What’s the problem?

Sure, probably not a great idea to vent on twitter, and I myself said that Balarezo reminds me of his nemesis Trump, his favorite target, but is it wrong?  I don’t recall Judge Cogan saying it was.  And his tweets have no negative impact on the case, or the jury that I can see.

As for Colon-Miro's, forlorn expressions, that would sort of be expected,  when speaking of forlorn issues and circumstance, a reasonable person would figure as much.

El Chapo Trial: "Secret" Memo Unsealed-Martinez testimony ends-Chupeta on deck

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat
Thus is first part of trial report for today



Secret Memo 

Ordered unsealed today is the “Secret Memo” regarding El Rey Zambada paying bribes to government officials.  Some have reported this means current, by a couple of days, and past presidents.  But in the memo no president is mentioned, just “government officials”, and no names provided.

Prosecutors insist that the defense’s “offer of proof is incorrect” but there is not an explanation.

They also say that the government itself disclosed that Zambada paid bribes—but not to whom.

The secret memo document is at bottom, but is heavily redacted; therefore it remains a “Secret Memo”.

Sicaria kills 5 in Veracruz?

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat thank you Abogado Div G for the heads up-from AM.Com Mx-SinEmbargo-Daily Mail

This story was sent it.  It was published on Daily Mail, the title read:

“Police hunt female assassin who stepped off motorbike and EXECUTED five young men at a wedding anniversary party for one of the victims in Mexico before disappearing”

I had not seen the story.  I began checking and found a tweet on Cronica Oaxaca “In social networks circulates a video, which in seconds, a hit man and a man run on the street to 5 young people [shoot] and flee quickly on two motorcycles. The event occurred last Monday in Minatitlan, Veracruz.

The story: A sicaria murdered five
A video circulating on social networks shows a woman arriving on a motorcycle driven by a man. She leaves the motorcycle while in the street, she was driven by a man.  She began shooting six times hitting 5 young men.

Another man who seems to accompany her approached the bodies lying on the ground and kicked one of them. Then, like the woman, she got on a motorcycle driven by another person and fled .

El Chapo trial: Witness says "Yes I hate him"

Chivis Martinez - Material from Pacer Gov Docs-Molly Crane NYT-Mica-BB archives



Today testimony continues from Chapo’s former pilot, Miguel Martinez.

I was a good friend,  says cooperative witness Martinez

Miguel testified that he took care of Griselda and her children who she had with Chapo, after Chapo was captured in 1993, letting them live in one of his houses, giving them money, and “making sure they were always taken care of."

“I never failed Mr. Guzman, never stole from him, never betrayed him, I watched over his family, and the only thing I received from him were four attempted [murder] attacks.”

Well, he did get something.  For starters a million dollars pay per year.  He received countless expensive gifts, trips and about those houses of his.  Chapo had properties placed in Martinez’ name.  By Martinez’ own admission he sold one as he needed the money for his attorneys.  Problem is….that was Chapo’s property.  It would appear the statement of never failing, betraying, or stole from Chapo fails on that one act alone. He says he only sold the house after an attempt was made on his life.  Not a smart move for a guy in fear of being murdered.

CDN steals body of Z12 from funeral home, dismembers and leaves body parts at prisons

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat material from Valor Tamaulipeco Loba Indomable


A CDN 15 vehicle convoy arrived at Valdez Funeral home in Nuevo Laredo and stole the body of  Zetas founder Luís Reyes Enríquez, alias "El Rex" or "Zeta 12".

The body was dismembered and the body parts left in black bags and an ice chest at three prisons, Cadereyta, Apodaca, and Topo Chico. A message was left with some of the body parts, 

Reyes was stabbed to death only 2 days after his transfer arrival at the prison in Nuevo Laredo.

He had completed his sentence in the Federal Social Readaptation Center of Mihuatlán de Porfirio Díaz, in the state of Oaxaca when an arrest warrant was activated in N.L. Tamaulipas.

El Chapo Trial: "Chapo ordered me killed four times"

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

Just before trial there was a mysterious filing by the prosecution regarding two witnesses. The redacted motion asked that hyper security be given for two witnesses, who expressed fear of testifying. Apparently, one witness is living a new clean life “where no one knows of my past” or “who I used to work for”. 

Special security measures were granted for these two witnesses, and based on what Miguel Martinez testified to on the stand today, I believe he is one of the two cooperative witnesses addressed in the filing. [see ruling at bottom]

Says Martinez; “When I was fighting for my extradition,  I never mentioned Mr. Guzman  and I never failed him, never stole from him, never betrayed him, I watched over his family, and what I received in return from him, was four attempted [murder] attacks against me. ”Speaking with respect to the 4 murder attempts he continues; “Can you imagine how many more I will receive?”


I understand he looks far different than the 28 years ago when the image was taken that I have posted.  Apart from being older, supposedly he is no long “Gordo”.

Chihuahua/Ignacio Zaragoza: State Police Leave Village Abandoned Following Cartel Clashes

Oaxaqueño for Borderland Beat


According to residents, repeated clashes and shootings took place in the course of last weekend in the municipality of Ignacio Zaragoza, located some 200 kilometers northwest of the city of Chihuahua. The violence broke out on Friday when a clash between criminals and police elements was reported. Consequently, the state police forces allegedly abandoned the village. As a result of that, repeated encounters between sicarios of rival criminal groups operating in the region took purportedly place over the weekend. However, there are no reports on the number of killed people in the clashes available. Reportedly, state police did not return until Monday afternoon when the clashes were over. State officials denied that clashes took place, stating that they have no information supporting those reports.
 
Oaxaqueño Analysis:


Although the reports of the locals surrounding the clashes cannot be independently verified, it can be almost taken for granted that these clashes took place.

Cooperative witness Miguel Martinez with El Chapo
Continued testimony from Miguel Martinez, Chapo’s former pilot

Money in Samsonite

From 1990 Chapo began paying Martinez a million dollar a year.

Martinez says he would walk into banks with money packed into Samsonite briefcases.  Martinez, said this caused problems, as it raised red flags.   

“I was asked if I was laundering money. I said, no.  I said  I was exporting tomatoes.”

Once the money was secured in a banking system, Martinez said he would begin making payouts on behalf of Chapo.

“Mr. Guzman had a large family.  He had four or five wives, we had to pay them all.” [Chapo was only legally married once, to his first wife who he never divorced.]

"La Linea" vs "Los Aztecas" War = 979 Homicides 2018

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: El Diario


Pls SEE our new reporter’s Oaxqueno’s  Post from Yesterday !http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2018/11/chihuahua-ciudad-juarez-leader-of-la.html

A part of the executions in Ciudad Juárez is due to a break between the groups ''La Línea'' and ''Los Aztecas'', according to researchers from the State Attorney General's Office (FGE). 

Narcomenudistas of Ciudad Juarez fight new territories after ''squeezing'' their clients with the sale of ice or crystal meth. 

Data revealed by the Attorney General's Office (FGE) reveal that users of this drug shorten their life span and this results in the market shrinking. 

Journalistic information, indicates that according to the centers of Primary Care in Addictions (CAPA) and the Subsystem of Provision of Services (SIS), 77 % of users who request attention for problems with the " crystal'', are  between 12 and 17 years old. 

A report published by El Diario on June 28, 2018, states that in its first stage, addicts spend around 500 Pesos a day to consume glass. Figures from these institutions report that consumption among children under 12 and 14 years old, rebounded 60 % last year.

El Chapo Trial

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

It appears Hunting El Chapo author Andrew Hogan will not be called to testify, but his partner will. Government asks that racially charged transcripts not be allowed, prison escapes, murders, mental health....and other filings and rulings.


Government moves to restrict cross examination of a pending witness in the El Chapo case.

In opening statements the El Chapo defense alluded to an agent that has stated in the past via email his opinions and characterizations of the defendant that were favorable to the defense.

On Sunday the government filed a motion to prevent any cross examination or introduction with respect to these opinions or characterizations. Further stating they are “irrelevant, and “self-serving” to the defendant.

Ruling: The Government now asks the Court to confirm that defendant will also be precluded from introducing this evidence. The Court will not preclude defendant from introducing this evidence; however, if defendant elicits information about to show the witness’s bias, the Court will permit the Government to introduce rebuttal evidence that the witness participated in the cartel’s alleged illegal activities in part because of  _____________________ last part redacted.

Another motion from the government, asks to be able to admit information about Chapo’s prison escape.

What is interesting, in Mexico it is not a crime to escape or attempt escape from prison as it is seen as a natural instinct.  As long as no one was harmed, then there is no crime.  So by allowing this evidence to be used as evidence against Chapo, they are using evidence that is not unlawful in the nation in which the act occurred.

Motion Granted; “it is necessary to include to present the entire story of crime at trial”

The association ‘Milynali de Tamaulipas’, dedicated to finding missing persons, revealed that in their travels through the state they have found at least 50 narco-camps  in the last six years.
Graciela Pérez Rodríguez, president of the group and of the Citizen Science Forensic Network (CFC), indicated that these sites are used by organized crime to bury or burn the bodies of victims with the intention of eliminating any trace of identification.

Civil organizations agreed that the situation of crime, impunity, violence and insecurity in the country has impacted nearly 40 million children and young people. 

In a joint conference, NGOs defending the rights of children and young people denounced the poor compliance that the State has shown to guarantee the rights of this sector. Rafael Castelán, counselor of the Network for the Rights of Children in Mexico, said that the seriousness of the problem affects one of the most vulnerable populations and illustrates the need for the development of a comprehensive care strategy.

The internal war between CJNG and Cartel Jalisco Nueva Plaza (El Cholo) keeps on raging in the metropolitan areas of Guadalajara. El Cholo’s group have now published two interrogation videos of captured CJNG members. On both videos CJNG members say they have been ordered to bomb the USA embassy in GDL so the U.S. can “respect Mencho”.

The alleged regional leader of the CJNG has evaded up to five attempts to capture him, all ending with shootouts.

The shootout with blockades which occurred in the municipality of Tomatlán, was due to elements of the Ministry of the Navy attempting  to stop a regional chief of the Cartel Jalisco  Nueva Generación

Military personnel had information that he would pass through the federal highway 200 Cihuatlán - Puerto Vallarta, and is  identified as Hugo Mendoza, alias "El 90", who previously was in charge of operations in Puerto Vallarta, but was reassigned to lead the criminal group in the states of Veracruz and Puebla.
