AMLO Reveals There is a Witness to the Ayotzinapa Kidnapping Detained in the US

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat


President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) made a surprising revelation at his morning press conference on May 28 2021 when he revealed the file his administration had recently requested and received from the United States government was that of a detainee who witnessed the events of the forty three missing students of Ayotzinapa Teachers College. This revelation came as follows: 

QUESTIONER: President, I would like to ask you about the file sent by the United States, which is linked to the Ayotzinapa case. Does this have to do with the arrests of members of Guerreros Unidos carried out in the United States? And also to ask you, at this moment who has this file? Does the Presidency have it? Does the Attorney General's Office have it? Does the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts also have it? Who already has this file, President? 

AMLO: Well, it is a file of a person detained in the United States linked to these events. I am not judging. We do not know if he is responsible or not. He is a witness. And Encinas already has the file, Alejandro Encinas, Undersecretary of the Interior. And it will also be at the disposal of the prosecutor's office, which was integrated for the purpose of finding out where the young people from Ayotzinapa are. And also the group of advisers who are helping to learn the truth about these unfortunate events.


QUESTIONER: Was this witness, President, at the events of September 26 and 27?


AMLO: I have no further information and I do not want to be reckless in this case. The matter is very delicate, you know, and we are doing well in the investigation, very well. So, I want to give the prosecutor's office it’s place. They can report at the appropriate time.


QUESTIONER: Do you trust that this file can greatly clarify the prospect, President, of this Ayotzinapa case?


AMLO: Yes, it is a part of an entire investigation, which has many components. Something very professional is being done and the most important thing is that it is acting with rectitude, without hiding anything, without impunity or the desire to protect people. We will get to know what happened and we will inform you when the investigation is more advanced.


Undersecretary Alejandro Encinas, who was mentioned by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), is in charge of restarting the investigation into the disappearance of the Ayotzinapa students.

Four days earlier, AMLO teased this revelation saying he had a meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris and "We were dealing with other issues, but the human rights commission in charge of investigating the Ayotzinapa case asked me to work with the U.S. government to obtain a file that the U.S. authorities have… I asked the Vice President to help us. I want to thank her because she already sent me part of the file. I can't say more, but we already have the answer."

The questioner from today’s press conference mentions the “arrests of members of Guerreros Unidos carried out in the United States”, which may allude to the Guerreros Unidos members who were arrested in Chicago, Illinois, in late 2014 for heroin distribution. The cartel members have had a long and protracted legal battle since 2014, but there has been lots of progress recently in their trial. 


Among the Guerreros Unidos (GU) members arrested in Chicago was Pablo Vega, the leader of the regional cell and a major heroin distributor for the United States. As part of the DEA’s investigation into Pablo Vega, they recorded calls and covertly intercepted messages between Pablo Vega and his GU collaborators in Mexico.

A US indictment of Vega revealed that in these calls and messages the men spoke of drug shipments from Mexico that were being made using line buses, much like the buses the forty three Ayotzinapa students had taken. Ever since 2015, the human rights council has demanded the Mexican government request all the call records and messages the US collected in their surveillance of the Chicago GU cell.


Much of the current buzz around the Ayotzinapa case has been tied to allegations that Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) leader El Cuini has been trying to make a deal with federal prosecutors that would prevent his extradition to the US in exchange for sharing intelligence the CJNG gathered on the Ayotzinapa case. 


However, it should be noted that El Cuini is alleged to have spoken with the aforementioned Alejandro Encinas, in charge of the Ayotzinapa investigation on May 12 2021. The request for the US file was made by AMLO to Vice President Kamala Harris on May 7 2021.

That being said, Alejandro Encinas notified the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC) that El Cuini was collaborating with testimonies of high value for the Ayotzinapa case on April 8 2021. After this notification, Cuini was transferred from the maximum security prison Altiplano to Santa Martha Acatitla, a medium security prison. 

The speculated connection between El Cuini and the file request relies on knowing at which meeting, if any, Cuini divulged information to prosecutors. There has been no information released to the press that clarify those details. So, as of today, what prompted the May 7 2021 file request, which has been petitioned by the human rights council since early 2015, is unclarified and unknown.

    1. 7:54 mexican anymosity toward the US has very well documented reasons, including rooted in history, with plenty of witnesses from mexican and american sides, forget about your full of anymosity "against mexicans" comment, the american people love the mexican people and the mexicans love americans, with admiration and respect in spite of the assholery that tries to divide us to promote their agendas.

  4. I think I read an article on the Chicago sun times about this individual a few years back in regards to receiving the call about what to do with the 43 students. whom were presumably accused of working with rivals to steal the drugs. I think the US has it on wire tap.

  6. I have heard some pigs fly, but i doubt this crap will, even if somebody paints condor, eagle or turkey wings on it and sends it to hollywood animations.
    --How would GU get the military and federal police moving to Guerrero even before the first bus was hijacked.
    --How would drug traffickers get the military to refuse inspection of the barracks.
    --How would GU get military and federal police to hide days long C4 communications, EPN to kick independent investigators out of the country, get tomas zeron a position from where to deny, obscure, hide facts and feed everybody packs of lies while stealing one billion peisos from the federal police budget to go hide in Israel?
    --GU got Cienpedos to defend his army muchachos like a bitch???
    These are FACT BASED QUESTIONS, no BS.

    2. Passenger buses were needed to go to México City for anti-government march to remember the victims of the Tlatelolco Massacre MEXICO 68, done by the butcher of Tlatelolco, general secre of defense marcelino garcia barragan, EPN president, his cabinet, and barragan's grandson omar hamid garcia harfuch (federal police chief in Guerrero) would NOT like that.
      Students have been hijacking buses every year to go protest since 1968, including now politicians of every party.

    1. Thank you Ms.H. :)
      I've got the easy job really. I just have to compile things together and rephrase in a way that sounds natural in english. I never forget that all the real risk and sacrifice is being done by journalists in Mexico. They deserve so much credit.

    3. Absolutely, certainly feel that deep in my heart. 39 killed last year alone, sadly. Something we need to keep in mind.
      I came close to femicide with but had the sheer luck of a solid passport and funds. Millions are not so lucky. Not pointing fingers, just the truth of the matter. It's a dumpster fire with no easy solutions.
