Rafael Caro Quintero, former founder of the Guadalajara cartel, obtained an ex officio and plane suspension from a federal judge so as not to be extradited to the United States, a federal court wants him for the crimes of kidnapping and manslaughter of the DEA agent, Enrique Camarena, perpetrated in 1985.

In October, the First Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) refused to protect the kingpin against the Extradition Treaty [amparo] signed between Mexico and the United States, Milenio reported.

The ministers left it up to the First Collegiate Court in Criminal Matters of the First Circuit to resolve only issues of legality to determine whether or not to approve the extradition.

The magistrates of the Collegiate had so far not resolved the case, because they have not yet received the  judgment from the Court.

However, the capo was ahead of any adverse scenario and filed its demand for guarantees to prevent extradition.

The Fourth District Judge of Amparo in Criminal Matters, María Dolores Núñez Solorio, granted the suspension to the capo and prevented it in the sense that the precautionary measure will not take effect, in the event that the claimed act has been the subject of a different trial of protection.

Núñez Solorio said in his agreement that the drug trafficker requested the suspension with respect to the extradition order requested by the United States Government, but not the capture order he has in Mexico. He served 28 years of his 40 year sentence.

On August 9, 2013, Caro Quintero got his freedom after remaining 28 years in prison, because a collegiate court granted him an amparo.

The determination was fought by the former Attorney General's Office and took the case to the Court where on November 6 of the same year the First Chamber revoked the sentence.

In December 2013, the attorney Jesús Murillo Karam, announced that Caro Quintero sent a letter to President Enrique Peña Nieto, in which he requested that he no longer be persecuted, because what he had to already serve.

In January 2015, the Second Unitary Court of the Third Circuit, based in Guadalajara, in compliance with the Court ruling again declared Rafael Caro and Ernesto Fonseca, Don Neto, criminally responsible for the crimes of illegal deprivation of liberty in the modality of kidnapping and qualified homicide, to the detriment of the DEA agent, Enrique Camarena Salazar and the Mexican pilot Alfredo Zavala Avelar.

Likewise, he determined that Caro had to serve the 12 years of prison that he lacked, so he was ordered to re-apprehend him.

The United States today offers a reward of 20 million dollars for the head of Caro Quintero. Since 1985, they seek to prosecute him for the murder of the DEA agent, a crime committed in Guadalajara, where Zavala Avelar was also killed.


  1. As a U.S. citizen, I must say I find it absolutely ridiculous that the DEA would put a $20M reward out for Caro Quintero while El Mencho, who’s CJNG Cartel is by far the bigger threat to both Mexican and U.S. interests has only a $10M reward...that seems completely backwards - Mencho should be the bigger fish and higher priority, and that’s if you were to target any of the leaders at all.

    1. Great observation my friend.Someone like you needs to be head of the Dea.

    2. He hasn't been accused of killing a DEA agent and being released.

    3. Its a personal vendetta...let it be...

    4. 432 your right I am going out to protest, that's little money.

    5. Look it's easy, The hell with Mexico, Send a death squad
      Of our elite,Raid the fuck'n prison and kill him or drag him over the border shoot his ass, Stop playing,DEA Agent was killed, an American
      With a wife and kids,
      Fuck, go get him ads holes,

  2. Just can't seem to get a break.

  3. So Rafa won't be extradited?

  4. They cannot extricate him to the US! but they can capture him?

  5. The real power that matters on the ground in Mexico is the cartels. Until the USA comes in with authority justice for criminals at the top will never be meted. Until then Mexico will remain a joke, sadly. An international embarrassment.

  6. Caro paid the right guys $$$
    Money talks

  7. lmao, enjoy it while it last. RCQ will be at the top if the capture list once the CIA begins anti terrorist operations in Mexico. It's not about threat level, it's about what he stands for. He murdered a DEA agent, and the US will never forget that and must set the example. Unlike the embarrassment that is Mexico, the rule of law exist in the US.

  8. Once spotted he will be executed by US undercover elites.

  9. You can run from the Americans but you can not hide. Eventually they will find you and kill you. Menchos days are coming. Just ask Abu bakr al baghdadi, saddam hussein or osama bin laden how hiding from the Americans worked out.

  10. RCQ has too much dirt on Mexican and US agencies, not being killed or captured is his insurance.

  11. None of you know what is going on about anything so please stop your stupid comments. Mexicans are the most honest and hard working people in the world. You have criminals in the USA and all over the world
