United States prosecutors revealed conversations that the former head of the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) had with an inmate inside a US prison after being captured on charges of having received bribes to favor the Sinaloa Cartel.

According to the documents revealed by US authorities, García Luna tried to contact a member of the Russian mafia so that he would allegedly carry out the murders. The former official called from inside the prison where he has been since his arrest in 2019.

Recently, during a press conference, Mexican President López Obrador commented that he hopes the United States resolves the Garcia Luna case during his term. López Obrador commented that the trial has already taken too long and no progress is known. “We already know that he had links with a criminal group and that is why he is in jail accusing him of that in the United States. I will continue to insist that it has been going on for a long time and we do not know anything about that trial,” he indicated.

  1. I am a fan of AMLO's but garcia Luna is NONE OF HIS BUSINESS.
    After the debacle of cienpedos' trials and tribulations when he was sent to mexico's courts and the US held the evidence against him to keep his mouth shut about them...
    Indict garcia Luna but don't take him back to mexico, he still owns most of all the criminal policuicos in México, including omar hamid garcia harfuch, the "next mexican secretary of public security", or defense, like his grandpa marcelino.

    1. That's a long ass run on sentence and judging by that I'm gonna assume you didn't finish high school and English isn't your first language because the only period you seem to know is the one you get once a month?

    2. 6:15 the Almo nutthugger lawyer. We all notice, that when someone comments the truth about almo, your ready to find a way to berate them, in this instance 2:05 made a valid point, but to bring him down, you played with him not using periods. Get a life let people comment the truth.

      Delete
    3. The truth relies on facts, if you don't have the facts to back up your statement than all you have is an opinion. Ain't no facts or truth in 2:05 statement, but I'm sure he appreciates you jumping in to defend him like a joto.

    4. @6:15 you’re the one to speak about run on sentences? Damn, I guess I triggered you so much that you replied with the same style of “elementary” education level you’re judging with. Besides the racist comments, go have the day you deserve.

      @9:26 Thanks for the comment!

    5. What did I tell people in here, we have a almo lawyer, that crawls out of the rock, the minute someone comments about grampa president. He even calls them Poncho, like if that supposed to scare us away, big fool does not want to accept the truth and likes to mess around with Rubio's gender, if he likes a certain color panties, then let it be. Let's see how he will try to belittle me, for being open minded.

      AMLO has achieved greatly for Mexico and the Mexicans, you could get informed better by others and not take our word for it, but he is no dictator and has to deal with a whole lotta shit from his own sellout legislators, ministers, judges, chayoteros...
