Mondragon y Kalb quits Mexico's security agency

By Chris Covert

Manuel Mondragon y Kalb will quit Mexico's top security agency today, according to Mexican press reports and Twitter accounts.

A news account which appeared on the online edition of El Sol de Mexico new daily said that Mondragon y Kalb will end his job with Mexico's Comisionado Nacional de Seguridad (CNS), a job he held since the start of the administration of President Enrique Pena Nieto in December of 2012.

Mondragon y Kalb was appointed head of the CNS directly after a major reshuffling of Mexico's interior ministry Secretaria de Gobernacion (SEGOB).  Part of that reorganization changed Mexico's Policia Federal from a cabinet level ministry to a sub agency of SEGOB.

Part of the restructuring included a change in the way federal crimes such a intentional homicide were reported.  SEGOB mostly reported statistics, not individual crimes and ended the practice of presenting detainees before the press.

Since that time SEGOB has been slowly immersing itself into a growing scandal in which violent crime statistics are being deliberately misreported, charges that have been leveled and apparent since the beginning of Pena's term.

According to a newd report which appeared in Latin Times news daily website, Mondragon y Kalb resigned in  the wake of a federal prison escape last week in Ciudad Juarez involving five inmates.

The report also hints that personal reasons may have been involved in his reason to quit.

Mondragon y Kalb is the second top security official to resign in two days.  Friday it was announced that Tamaulipas' Secretaria de Seguridad Publica del Estado (SSPE), Rafael Lomeli Martinez reigned his position leaving a legacy of the worst of 33 states to retrain police officers, a nationwide  effort that has been ongoing since 2011.

  1. Lomeli resigned because of accusations against him. It was because of him and Egidio Torre Cantú that ENRIQUE SANTILLAN and ROMAN RICARDO PALOMO RINCONES aka EL COYOTE were let go when they got arrested. Lomeli along with the governor personally met and received bribes from Z-40 and Z-42 along with Lazca.

    the victims of their cowardly crimes were easy to handle, running a drug trafficking emporium that they stole, biting the hand that fed them, losing the bosses in the process, leaves no reason to say viva el lazca, the dirty deeds of the zetas leave no room for them in the world...
