Judge Absolves Héctor "El Güero" Palma of Drug Trafficking; Release Order Pending Full Confirmation

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Hector 'El Guero' Palma in 2016

Héctor "El Güero" Palma Salazar, one of the founders of the Sinaloa Cartel, was absolved from his drug trafficking charges by a judge in Jalisco and was ordered for immediate release.

Mexico's Attorney General's Office (FGR) is verifying if Palma is wanted in other states in Mexico before the judge proceeds with the release order. It also said that the order was sent to various prosecutors and attorneys' offices throughout the country, with the purpose of verifying if Palma has other pending charges. Mexico's Secretariat of Foreign Affairs (SRE) is verifying if Palma has pending extraditions requests from the US government.

Last February, rumors surfaced that Palma was about to be released after a document surfaced on social media showing his prison release order. The document indicated that Palma – a native of Mocorito, Sinaloa – was about to be released. But the authenticity of the document was quickly called into question and discarded as fake.

It is worth nothing that Palma is still under investigation for the murder of two police officers in Nayarit, but investigators confirmed that this investigation is still its preliminary stages (Spanish: desahogo judicial). This means the prosecution is still gathering evidence against Palma and vetting them with a judge prior to issuing a formal arrest warrant. This investigation is not enough to keep him in prison.

Earlier this year, Palma's sister-in-law and niece were found dead after they had been missing since December 2019. If the person(s) who masterminded the attack hold a grudge against Palma, a release will likely put him in immediate danger.

Background

Palma was born in La Noria de Abajo, municipality of Mocorito, Sinaloa, where he met Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, ('The Godfather'), who recruited him as a hitman. He eventually met Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán and both became business partners.

In 1995, he was arrested while heading to a wedding on his private jet. While flying his jet suffered engine problems and he had to do a forced landing near the Jalisco and Nayarit state borders. His arrest confirmed what many Mexicans had long known: in Mexico, the police are for sale and drug lords are purchasing them. When Palma was arrested, most of his entourage were active members of the Federal Judicial Police (PJF).

Palma was imprisoned at the Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 2 ("Puente Grande"), the infamous prison where El Chapo escaped in 2001. In Mexico, Palma won several appeals and had his charges dropped multiple times.

However, in 2007, Palma was extradited to the U.S. and sentenced for his drug trafficking involvement. He was deported back to Mexico in 2016 and was re-arrested by Mexican authorities who were waiting for him at the border crossing.

    En tierras de Nayarit
    fue donde cayo el avion
    iba pa' Guadalajara
    procedente de Obregon
    transladaba al güero Palma
    un respetable señor
    Murieron las compañeros
    el güero herido quedo
    la consigna era matarlo
    asi se les ordeno
    no querian encerrarlo
    pero aquel plan les fallo
    Por causa del accidente
    los guachos dieron con el
    le achacan todas las broncas
    habidas y por haber
    no se pasen de la raya
    porque no esta muerto el rey
    Hay muchos involucrados
    con la detencion del güero
    el hombre mas poderoso
    que nunca conocio el miedo
    el pais casi era suyo
    lo recorria por el cielo
    Ay te va Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit y Jalisco
    Pistola escuadra en el cinto
    con cachas de pedreria
    caballo de pura sangre
    pifiada y de oro la silla
    tambien un corvette del año
    seguido por policias
    Sinaloense cien por ciento
    de valentia comprobada
    tenia gente alla en Colombia
    y en la Union Americana
    en Peru y el Salvador
    en Mexico y Guatemala
    No esten tranquilos señores
    que el cuento aqui no se acaba
    las ordenes son las mismas
    siguen al pie de la raya
    hagan ya su testamento
    puede explotarles la almohada

    2. 1:53 shows what you know. El Guero Palmas family is still active in the Cartels. Many of his primos are active members. You seem to be confusing prison life in Mexico to prison life in USA. Get your head out your ass. This guy has grudges to finish.

    3. @5:22 True input, also, even in USA prison is just another school of crime.

    4. 5:22 miguel angel felix gallardo should wash his ass, he sent venezuelan mincemeat rafail clavel to work on Güero Palma's wife and kids,

      Delete
    5. 5:22 you watch too many novelas and being from where he’s from who doesn’t have a cousin or 2 in the game. If he’s smart he’ll lay low and take care of whatever family he has left

    6. What makes you think Rafa was closer to Guero than Chapo was..?

      Delete
    7. @4:58 he should have but couldn't. By the time he sent in the Venezuelan EL Guero and El Chapo had Sinaloa on lock and had the power there. So he couldn't just send gunman in there to take him out. @8:09 RCQ brother MCQ had the Sonora Cartel and when the plazas were split El Guero got SLRC. I'm sure they worked together. I'm sure there is a connection between the two.

    8. 5:04 you seem to be clueless in this cause RCQ was in prison for 20+ years and went straight back into the game. Get your head out your ass.
