Federal court judge Laura Gutiérrez de Velazco Romo refused to unfreeze the bank accounts of former Mexican Federal Police chief Ramón Eduardo Pequeño García, one of the men when linked to former Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) chief Genardo Garcia Luna. Garcia Luna is imprisoned in the U.S. for multiple drug-related charges. 

Pequeño Garcia's accounts were frozen by Mexico's Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) in July 2020 after he was accused by the U.S. government of receiving bribery payments from the Sinaloa Cartel. The accusation and financial sanctions also extended to his associate José Luis Cárdenas Palomino.

Both Cárdenas Palomino and Pequeño García held key positions in the Mexico's police structures throughout three presidential administrations. They were responsible for leading the entire security apparatus of the Mexican Federal Police, including sensitive intelligence efforts between the U.S. and Mexico.

During their tenure they were decorated agents in Mexico, but according to U.S. officials, they collaborated for years with the Sinaloa Cartel to facilitate their drug trafficking operations. The accusations against Pequeño Garcia are a result of years of investigation by U.S. officials. The idea is that Pequeño Garcia is faces trial in the U.S. and testifies against his former boss, Garcia Luna.

Pequeño Garcia does not have an arrest warrant in Mexico and is currently a free man. He works as an advisor to the head of SSP, Alfonso Durazo Montaño.

Mexico's Attorney General's Office (FGR) is currently investigating Pequeño García's organized crime links. The agency noted that his investigation has been progressing.

"Once all the information we have is legally obtained and authorized by judges, we will proceed with a judicial action," the FGR said in a statement.

  1. Looks like Garcia Luna is being set up to take the blame and serve as an example. This might be the closest thing to "justice" mexicans are going to get... Hopefully Luna drags former presidents down with him.

    1. Que se los chinguen a todos políticos coruptos! They should face harsher charges than “regular” criminals for using their position as a PUBLIC official to commit crimes!

  2. Hey, whaddafack! Luis Cardenas Palomino and pequeño garcia worked with "El Trucutú" Omar Hamid Garcia Harfuch the big police officer and "intelligence Specialist", what are they doing infiltrating MORENA presidential politics?
    Harfuch stayed with EPN and became a ghost, "The Ghost of Ayoyzinapa"

  3. Esta saliendo caro lo de el culiacanazo. Tengan cuidado porque estan cayendo grandes politicos y los nuevos que lleguen puede que sean aliados de el mencho o otro señor.

  4. Not like this asshole doesn't have more money stashed in other countries including Mexico.
    This fool or his family will definitely never need some.

    1. By your argument, he ain't no fool.

  5. Luna is not a smart guy. The chose to leave mexico with his millions of stolen cash and go to the only country on earth that will lock you up so long you'll want to take your own life. He deserves whatever sentence he gets.

  6. The hunt for former FECAL and EPN government officials needs to get up and name all the targets and make them run for cover to their favorite cartels they betrayed and sold out, i hope they torture, kill and dismember the whole bunch of motherfackers instead of each other cartel member

  7. Not to a month when all the smoke clears, the guy will higher a lawyer to get his account unfrozen.

  8. Ramon Eduardo Pequeño Garcia,funny isnt it,not.All the time this guy is introducing the perp walks of who knows how many and in a few short years he is being accused of the same shit?Well he didnt have to get his hands dirty to make money,he sat back took handouts and allowed cartels to do their shit.Politicians are the worst kind of human
    "Politician"should be in the dictionary as an "individual who is untrustworthy,venal,dishonest,liar,facilitator of crimes,morally corrupt" Did i miss anything?
