Uruguay confirms extradition of Cuinis/CJNG leader to the U.S. after his sentence concludes

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Note: This was national news in Uruguay in February 2020, when the announcement was made.


Last month, the Supreme Court of Justice in Uruguay confirmed the extradition (under certain conditions) to the United States of Gerardo González Valencia, a Mexican drug lord imprisoned in Uruguay since 2016. He is linked to Los Cuinis and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG).

The extradition was first confirmed by an Appeals Court in 2018, but González Valencia's defense took the case to the Supreme Court of Justice through an appeal. Last month's decision is now official.

Extradition conditions
The Court allowed the extradition of González Valencia under the following conditions:

(1) Delivery is deferred until the requested party (González Valencia) obtains his provisional release or definitive release in the case followed in Uruguay. This means that González Valencia will have to serve his sentence in Uruguay before being extradited to the U.S.

(2) González Valencia should not be tried or convicted for crimes other than those referred to in the extradition request, except for the cases set forth in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 13 of the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Uruguay.

(3) No death penalty or life imprisonment should be issued against González Valencia.

Background
Gerardo González Valencia is the brother of Mexican drug lord Abigael González Valencia ("El Cuini"), who headed the CJNG and Los Cuinis. This criminal group has presence in Mexico, the U.S., Europe and Asia. He is part of a large clan within the CJNG. González Valencia was allegedly responsible for coordinating international money laundering schemes by using shell companies to purchase assets in Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

His wife Wendy Dalaithy Amaral Arévalo was reportedly working with him on this large money laundering scheme when the couple moved from Mexico to Uruguay in 2011. He had millionaire properties and businesses in Punta del Este and Montevideo.

The original documents of the investigation framing González Valencia were leaked in 2015 through the Panama Papers, where it detailed real estate transactions and industrial sector investments tied to him. After a multi-year investigation by Latin American officials and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, González Valencia was arrested in Montevideo, Uruguay, in April 2016, and imprisoned for money laundering charges.

That year, the Organized Crime Judge Adriana de los Santos prosecuted González Valencia for money laundering along with four other people who assisted his efforts.

Due to González Valencia's high-profile and international links to drug trafficking groups, he was imprisoned in the Guardiana Republicana units, a high-security facility in Uruguay.

    1. He has not been convicted or sentenced in Uruguay just yet. What was settled in court was if he should be sent to the U.S. before this took place. Now that this has been cleared I think we can expect a decision from an Uruguayan court soon.

    1. Life imprisonment does not exist in Uruguay, hence why they added a clause asking U.S. authorities to not sentence him with that. When Mexico extradites criminals to the U.S., they often try to have U.S. authorities agree to that as well.

    2. Yes US is fucked they have a death penalty

  4. Enjoy your stay at club USA. The Valencia-Oseguera clan is crumbling. They have killed too many innocents and shed too much blood. Mencho hides in caves all day while his kids are in chains in US prisons. The Valencia coke heads are shaking in their boots.

  5. I think the U.S is trying to do Abigail like they did Chapo. Have all these CJNG members dime him out. Not unless they catch Mencho, someone's gonna have to be a sacrificial lamb, and I have a feeling its gonna be Abigail.

    1. Great point. You would think they would have extradited already, right? The guy has been closed to being released a few times. The CJNG/Los Cuinis seem to have great lawyers. Menchito was extradited but authorities struggled to send him over there.

    1. Might be even shorter if he agrees to testify against his family members who have pending charges in the U.S. His brother José is in Brazil. Whoever gets to the U.S. first wins the shortest sentence!

  7. Hopefully he gets the death penalty.

    1. Yes, Federico Tobares. It's a very sad story. I wrote the Wikipedia page of the disappearance case back in April 2017, see link below:

    2. Federico Tobares was an American Informant if they ever send Gerardo to the US you will see what I mean. In one of his many meetings with the DEA he was followed and they saw him talking to them.

      Delete
    3. Anon 10:1 AM: Do you have any sources I can read up about Tobares being an informant? Never heard of that before. I read that Gerardo agreed to speak with Tobares's family when he was in Argentina but his family did not want to meet because they were scared.

      Delete
    4. Why do you think Gerardo wanted to speak to his family? Do a freedom of information request you might get something.

      Delete
    5. No idea why, all I know is Gerardo set him up by asking him to drive a vehicle of his from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara. Federico was kidnapped after that. Investigators say Federico may have seen something suspicious while working for Gerardo, and Gerardo decided to eliminate him. Maybe Gerardo wanted to tilt the case in another direction by giving the family false leads.

    3. Yes 817 I agree too, they have jail guards making $12.00 a day, they are a few per shift vs a convoy of cartel of 5 suv x6 per load you know the criminals will free him out.

  11. this cuini clan makes me sick...a family with children that sits at the dinner table together responsible for so much blood shed, violence and so many deaths in Mexico. They sit at table full of luxury eating finest foods while their puppet Mencho is hiding in caves doing all of their dirty work ordering mass killing all over the country. The entire Cuini clan including women need to be extradited. Pure filth they are.

  12. Michoacanos are good people, quiet and get shit done, they are very serious and about action and that's the truth. Sinaloa Cartel is and older, more established and more professional organisation though, in my opinion Mencho and Cuinis never should have listened to whoever told them to betray CDS. No one likes "torcidos" that's why they have the nickname. But Mencho doesn't represent the Michoacanos, actually most people in Michoacán especially in Tierra Caliente dislike CJNG. So, don't confuse tweaker ass Mencho to all of the Michoacán people. The CJNG people I have seen that are die hard fans like Chema are usually from pueblitos in Jalisco and they feel special 'cus the cartel carries Jalisco name in it but in the end they will switch sides when it's time. That's "La Maña".

    2. Dont blame Mencho, blame the jalisco political families they run Jalisco and Colima. Always have and always will. Just like Mayo is kept alive by smart business men. mayo and mencho are "dumb" ranchers with no education. they just do the dirty work and funnel money to mobsters with college degrees or business connections.

    3. @8:21 Did you study in Europe, "Mr Organisation"? Everything you write is incorrect. Valencias/Milenio, Cuinis/Mencho, Tirso, El Tío, Güeritos and possibly Los AC were allied with Coronel for most of the 2000s, this group had Jalisco and Colima on lockdown. Güeritos split towards the end of the decade, its been reported they allied themselves with the Z's and got ran out of the state. Shortly before Coronel got killed in July 2010, Proceso reported that this group was strong enough to be its own mafia. El Lobo, boss of Milenio, and his brother Tigre along with a sister had already been captured when Coronel got killed. Erick is a Valencia, he should have been the boss after Lobo and Tigre got captured. Pilo, being the right hand of el Lobo and Tigre wanted to get the crown, Molca and Papirrin supported him and that's why they called 85 and Mencho "Los Torcidos". In my area of Michoacán, CJNG has control. Lacras get 2 chances, after that you're done. No extortion. You must have a short memory, CT were wiped out of most of Tierra Caliente by autodefensa/CJNG. Right now it might be a little different, but don't speak on Michoacán matters if you're not from here. Chema will answer you on his own

    8. @7:54 What is your "area" of Michoacán? Before CJNG everything was cool, I'm from a bordering pueblito between Jalisco and Michoacán I didn't study in Europe and CDS is way more organised than your bitch ass Mencho. When CJNG started, car robbery and bs began to happen to civilians in the roads at night. Templarios is another story and Autodefensas, CJNG and Sinaloa all allied to wipe them out.

      Your whole Pilo and Molca story is from the pinche Molca video of La Federal which has nothing to do with my comment. I said they are Torcidos cus they betray everyone not only Molca.

      And Chemita, I never said you sold drugs nor that you was from a Jalisco pueblo, just said you a fanboy like people from those towns, I have grown up and be related to narcos too, when they started to do stupid shit I didn't cheer for them, so cálmate gordito.

      I have seen CJNG kill innocents and act like they own legal joints and the towns they in, pulling guns to civilians and shit in JALISCO, so váyanse a la verga los dos culeros.

    EVEN if they catch ALL the 10 CUINI siblings it won't get better, it's going to get WORSE. You will have cjng split again all over Mexico causing more violence for control of PLAZAS.. Somebody else will take their roll and business as usual.. War on drugs is a JOKE.. When ever they REALLY want to stop the flow of drugs they WILL hit Colombian, Peruvian, Bolivia coke fields and stop the cheese from sending ALK the CHEMICALS to make synthetic DRUGS!!! Just saying......
