Colombia Provides More Evidence Against Genaro García Luna

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Colombian authorities presented new evidence against Genaro Garica Luna, former Secretary of Public Security of Mexico, for his upcoming trial in Brooklyn, New York.

The documents were turned in to the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York and shown to Cesar de Castro, Genaro Garcia Luna's private attorney, for review.

The exact nature of the evidence presented is unknown, but reports say it included property records and financial statements. 

Over a decade ago, when he was still in public office and has already suspected of cartel collusion, Garcia Luna received the Medal of Merit in May 2011 from former Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, who highlighted Garcia Luna's "support for the Colombian police".

With the new government, Colombia now wants to help US prosecutors convict him.

García Luna was Secretary of Public Security of Mexico from 2006 to 2012, during the presidency of Felipe Calderon. He left Mexico at the end of Calderon's presidency and moved to Miami, where he established permanent residency. In 2018, he filed for US citizenship. However, he was arrested in Texas in December 2019 after being accused by federal authorities in New York of supporting the Sinaloa Cartel.

Investigators say he provided protection to the cartel and received millions of dollars from Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, once considered Mexico's most-wanted drug lord.

Garcia Luna hid more than US$50 million dollars in tax havens through a network of companies. The places he laundered money included the US, Mexico, Barbados, Hong Kong, Israel, Latvia, Panama, Colombia, the UK, Cyprus, and Curaçao.

Last month, US federal judge Brian Cogan accepted the request of the defense and prosecutors to postpone the trial until August 25 due to the "complexity" of the case. The new evidence presented by Colombia adds more fuel to the flames; countries like Mexico, the US, Barbados, and Panama have already presented evidence against him.

  1. Complexity for the US in any case is rare. If the US wants something they will have it.
    Something is in the cooking works for some deal to be made.

    1. Yeah you are totally right. We actually learn from the best The United States.
      I wonder sometimes where all the money and weapons come from to fuel all this Mexican criminals. And who buy most of the drugs.

    2. @11:21 I will assume you are from the United States. Didn’t you guys went to Iraq to kill thousands of civilians? Isn’t your police killing thousands of unarmed civilians? Isn’t your country the number one in mass shooting cases in the world? And just to finish this. If you watch the murder shows from your country you will know that the way this Cartel criminals usually kill is the same way you people do it in the USA. Mutilations decapitations burning bodies cannibalism and much more. Our savagery started 20 years ago. You guys started more than 100 years ago.

    3. @12:21 bruh your savagery didn't start 20 years ago your savagery has been in full swing since the Aztec empire and way before hernan cortes came in to steal everything lmao

    4. 12:11 Are you on dope, USA does not give money and weapons to Mexican criminals.

    5. @12:40 pm. Those were offerings to the Gods based on the highest priest. Is not like if we will accuse people of devil worshiping, witchcraft or other sins to kill them by burning people alive crucified decapitated or impaled them just on beliefs of Christian priest. But what do I know.

    8. The USA went to Iraq to kill 1000's of innocent civilians? Either your grandpa was Fidel Castro or you work for CNN..or both..

    9. 1:54 unfortunately the people on this site dont understand that the cartels are small time and the americans are long past dealing with cartels. the only reason the CIA did business with the guadalajara cartel was because of communism thats it. Rat Chapo wanted to work with the Americans but they never excepted him or Mayo

    10. That’s right @6:21 am. More than 200 thousand civilians died during the war and occupation and about 400 thousands were killed during the civil war. So yes the actions of the Iraq invasion are to be blamed. Iraq didn’t had weapons of mass destruction but you know who does ? North Korea. Obviously USA will never attempt to attack North Korea because they know it would not be like Iraq. North Korea does pack a punch.

  4. Guys like Luna and General Cienfuegos are the real bosses of the cartels. Most of the profits trickle up to these guys. It's about time these evil bastards get their comeuppance 😡
