Javier Duarte and Roberto Borge Seek Legal Protection Against New Arrest Warrants

Javier Duarte (L) and Roberto Borge (R)

Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Javier Duarte and Roberto Borge Angulo, two of four former PRI representatives who currently face issues with the Mexican justice system and with the United States, began to move their legal pieces in search of breaking down or at least alleviating the crimes that the Mexican federal government and the local state authorities from which they governed have against them.

For the time being, the former Veracruz governor, who since yesterday has been held in the North Male Preventive Prison, managed and obtained the provisional legal protection of justice against two arrest warrants that were filed by the Attorney General of Veracruz.

Sandra Robledo Magaña, the first district judge in protection matters, granted Duarte de Ochoa a provisional suspension against five crimes: embezzlement, influence peddling, failure to fulfill legal duty, coalition of civil servants, and abuse of authority.

The constitutional hearing which will determine whether it grants the final suspension or refusal to grant protection to Duarte will be held on August 3.

From Panama, where Roberto Borge, who has been detained since June 5th subject to an extradition trial based on an arrest warrant from a federal judge from the State of Mexico for the crime of money laundering, has also began to make his play and filed his first legal protection against any arrest warrant or appearance made against him.

On Friday, June 14, Ciro Carrera Santiago, the 5th district judge of Quintana Roo, based in Cancún, entered the proceeding pertaining to constitutional protections filed by the former PRI governor, and by default, granted him the provisional suspension against the acts that he claims, according to The Council of the Federal Judicature (CJF).

Borge had to pay as collateral the sum of 59,000 pesos, according to the agreements published by the court in relation to the legal protection 1096/2017.

The indictment against Borge Angulo arises from the sale to his next of kin of 25 land properties from the state government’s reserves at lower prices than the market value.

Nevertheless, there are six complaints against him, four from the Attorney General of Mexico (PGR) and two from the state’s district attorney’s office (FGE).

  1. And THIS is the root cause why mx is so fucked up. Not the gringos and their demand for drugs. Its a shame for all Mexicans that these guys will be free soon and getting their next term.

    1. The reasons Mex is fucked are (in order of importance):
      1. Poverty (i.e. inequality)
      2. Corruption
      3. Demand for drugs from the US

    2. Wrong...

      1. Corruption
      2. Drug cartels
      3. Poverty

    3. Drug cartels get money from the demand of drugs from the US. the demand was there way before the cartels were.

    4. you clearly are an idiot, the number one root cause agreed upon by , scholars, law enforcement anyone else who studies drug trafficking organized crime is the U.S. consumption of drugs. - El Sol Prendido

    5. Wrong... LOL Corruption was there way before, before 'poverty' was just other excuse to turn the place into some type of drug wharehouse by many sorts of greedy individuals who also steal from the citizens. The presidents they always have had criminal organizations they supported, then they keep complaining for all the mess. Obviously the location & proximity to the north was never noticed by none of the fatsos & nonfatsos with tails.

    6. Before someone came offering drugs there was no comsumption and even less addiction, people barely had money to eat, some sold beer and spirits, even had their grifa, or opium.
      Then the british came to conquer Asia and China and make peace with america and 5HEY started enhancing their economy by creating mass addiction, because there was a lot of money to be made from the poor and the middle class addicts, still is.
      And forgetabout legalization, the profits are in ILLEGAL DRUGS AND UNACCOUNTED FOR EARNINGS and no reporting on investments whatsoever, that way you just pay NO TAXES either.
      Don't blame the addicted broke asses or even the rich ones,
      --it is all about the uncontrollable greed of the World's Vulture Capitalistas.

  2. CREEPY Javier Duarte needs to be locked up.

    1. 11:15 well, look at him all day, wanna poster?
      Now if you can put two land whales in a sardines can, put el trompetazz with la Marrana Duarte, they will look sooo nice toghether.

    A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the south during the 1980s.
    American Made tells the story of Barry Seal (Tom Cruise), a TWA pilot who is recruited by the CIA to help counter the emerging communist threat in Central America. Seal’s role in this major CIA covert operation led in turn to his involvement with the Medellin cartel, which ultimately embarrassed the Reagan White House after the Iran-Contra scandal became public.

    Director: Doug Liman
    Writer: Gary Spinelli
    Stars: Tom Cruise, Caleb Landry Jones, Domhnall Gleeson
    Budget: $80,000,000 (estimated)

    Universal Pictures (2017) (USA) (theatrical)

    Flying high! Tom Cruise gets back in cockpit to run drugs and guns for CIA, DEA and Pablo Escobar in explosive trailer for American Made

    Read about Barry Seal here:

    by Jeffrey St. Clair – Alexander Cockburn

    Wanda Palacio was a witness waiting to testify in John Kerry’s senate office, when Barry Seal’s plane (Now owned by Southern Air Transport , crashed starting the iran Contra Affair)

    On Sept. 26, 1986, Kerry tried to spur action by presenting Weld with an 11-page “proffer” statement from a 31-year-old FBI informant who had worked with the Medellin cartel and had become a witness on cartel activities. The woman, Wanda Palacio, had approached Kerry with an account about Colombian cocaine kingpin Jorge Ochoa bragging about payments he had made to the Nicaraguan Contras.

    As part of this Contra connection, Palacio said pilots for a CIA-connected airline, Southern Air Transport, were flying cocaine out of Barranquilla, Colombia. She said she had witnessed two such flights, one in 1983 and the other in October 1985, and quoted Ochoa saying the flights were part of an arrangement to exchange “drugs for guns.”

    According to contemporaneous notes of this “proffer” meeting between Weld and Kerry, Weld chuckled that he was not surprised at allegations about corrupt dealings by “bum agents, former and current CIA agents.” He promised to give serious consideration to Palacio’s allegations.

    After Kerry left Weld’s office, however, the Justice Department seemed to concentrate on poking holes in Palacio’s account, not trying to corroborate it. Though Palacio had been considered credible in her earlier testimony to the FBI, she was judged to lack credibility when she made accusations about the Contras and the CIA.

    On Oct. 3, 1986, Weld’s office told Kerry that it was rejecting Palacio as a witness on the grounds that there were some contradictions in her testimony. The discrepancies apparently related to such minor points as which month she had first talked with the FBI.

    1. Interesting! Looking forward to watching it.
      I will assume its during the time of Oliver Norths criminal prosecution?


    2. It will be interesting to see how a big budget movie handles the 'facts'. To me, alot of these movies are made to control the masses by creating a safe and sanitized version the masses will believe is the truth.

    3. @756Am--
      That is exactly my point. With all of the big names and budgets involved it will be harder to cover up the truth. Tom Cruise woke up and saw what the feds are doing. In his last film--Jack Reacher, he depicted a military contractor smuggling heroin back from afgahnistan.




      “America’s War on Drugs” is an immersive trip through the last five decades, uncovering how the CIA, obsessed with keeping America safe in the fight against communism, allied itself with the mafia and foreign drug traffickers. In exchange for support against foreign enemies, the groups were allowed to grow their drug trade in the United States. The series explores the unintended consequences of when gangsters, war lords, spies, outlaw entrepreneurs, street gangs and politicians vie for power and control of the global black market for narcotics – all told through the firsthand accounts of former CIA and DEA officers, major drug traffickers, gang members, noted experts and insiders.

      Night one of “America’s War on Drugs” divulges covert Cold War operations that empowered a generation of drug traffickers and reveals the peculiar details of secret CIA LSD experiments which helped fuel the counter-culture movement, leading to President Nixon’s crackdown and declaration of a war on drugs. The documentary series then delves into the rise of the cocaine cowboys, a secret island “cocaine base,” the CIA’s connection to the crack epidemic, the history of the cartels and their murderous tactics, the era of “Just Say No,” the negative effect of NAFTA, and the unlikely career of an almost famous Midwest meth queen.

      The final chapter of the series examines how the attacks on September 11th intertwined the War on Drugs and the War on Terror, transforming Afghanistan into a narco-state teeming with corruption. It also explores how American intervention in Mexico helped give rise to El Chapo and the Super Cartels, bringing unprecedented levels of violence and sending even more drugs across America’s borders. Five decades into the War on Drugs, a move to legalize marijuana gains momentum, mega-corporations have become richer and more powerful than any nation’s drug cartel, and continuing to rise is the demand for heroin and other illegal drugs.

      “We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know, and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
      -Washington Post owner Katharine Graham in a 1988 speech to CIA recruits titled “Secrecy and the Press”:

      “Several informed sources have told me that an appendix to this Report was removed at the instruction of the Department of Justice at the last minute. This appendix is reported to have information about a CIA officer, not agent or asset, but officer, based in the Los Angeles Station, who was in charge of Contra related activities.According to these sources, this individual was associated with running drugs to South Central Los Angeles,around 1988. Let me repeat that amazing omission. The recently released CIA Report Volume II contained an appendix, which was pulled by the Department of Justice, that reported a CIA officer in the LA Station was hooked into drug running in South Central Los Angeles.”

      –U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters – October 13. 1998, speaking on the floor of the US House of Representatives.

  4. Where are their wives? They can't live off that stolen money from the people.

    1. Duartes wife is immune from prosecution due to a plea made with Mexican government. Moreover she filed for divorce.
      In other words sh can't be touched and keeps the ill gotten funds they both stole from Mexican citizens.
      Where's justice in that!


    2. Luego se quejan...

    3. What agreements? Las nalgas de duarte de ochoa en la carcel for 1 year for her freedom and impunity?
      She "deserves" a lot more than that, and some balazos por el jundillo, her family also participated in all the robberies and cover-ups, and from prison they would return most of it,
      even their US investments.

    4. Agreement with the mexican government of his compa epn?
      Pile up the bullshit, I hope the "new 'panista' governor" accused pederasta and robbing priista minister with multiple million dollar investments in "Niu Yoark" at least get some millions of dollars from this motherfacking family for himself chingadamadre, como son pendejos los are los del pinchi "gobierno mexicano".

  5. And life goes on, it's excepted by our people. The corruption is all over the world

    1. Exactly 3:06am Life goes on...we never heard of The Mayor of Gurrrero n his wife no more. People in Mexico dont lose no sleep over it.

    2. You probably never gavre it much thought (even less experience) but the world is VERY unequally corrupt.

    1. You definitely hit the button with that true statement!


  7. The government officials alwats get a slap on the wrist world wide, Just like joe arpaio in phoenix Arizona for example.

    1. 6:16 las nalgotas del sheriff apache arpaio tienen un fundillo muy chiquito comparado con el jundillo de la Marrana Parada "javier duarte de ochoa" and the other peña cartel ratas
      narco-goberandores asesinos.

  8. What will be interesting is to see the final outcome of his corruption charges. The legal proceedings will certainly entertain many. Moreover, the back door illegal agreements brewing .


  9. -Desde Tierra Caliente-

    Mi hija me lee estas cosas. Tengo una pregunta si se me permite. Un hombre muy malo viene a ti. Tienes miedo de él. Se pone sobre tu escritorio cincuenta mil pesos. Luego te mira y te pregunta. Hay una opción para usted. Este dinero o usted muere. Tienes que hacer algunas cosas por mí. Dime que prefieres?

    1. Y otra cosa es ser político puerco robando recursos (dinero) de la gente, hospitales, organizaciones etc. para uso personal. Los políticos son los verdaderos criminales así como los ves de pendejos y con corbata y traje

    2. Prefiero matarlo asi de fasil ay ke tenerlos bien puesto nasimos para morrir yo no nasi para ke me manden

    3. Ese hombre "Muy Malo" no llegaria a tu escritorio sin permiso, compita, y menos si no te va a hallar con los chones bajados.
      Do not blame the hombres muy malos, they do not own soldiers, marinas police and weapons and accountants to rob the pubic treasury and sicarios to kidnap, extort, torture, murder and disappear their victims in cahoots with the federal.government.

  10. Precisamente ese es el efecto que los trae todos asi en esos lugares, ya nadamas se duplican mas y mas como las ratas, esos marranos politicos a veces tambien reciven el mismo trato de los carteles, por eso hasta se pasan de lanza cuando estan en el poder, robando y haciendo lo que ellos quieren. Luego nomas se quejan...

    1. Los gobernadores que los maleantes, los maleantes que los gobernadores. Y en veces las dos cosas son la misma basura

  11. Remember when they used to kill leaders for things like this.
    Bring back the guillotine

    1. 7:31 the guillotine was used to decapitate the french royalty for good after the US refused to pay the loans the french king made to the american revolutionaries.
      The british took revenge on the french monarch after making peace with the american independentistas, the french revolution was never exactly "french", and american independence has always been subject to the british whims, up to today, kind of a pipe dream, fueled by opium and other shit
      like poppycock and chicken shit.

    2. OTIS, DO YOU AGREE with this revisionist opinion at @9:16?
      I thought secrets of state wsa.secrets of state, even for gossiping england, thanks...
