Veytia Pointed To Cienfuegos As Protector Of "El H-2"

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

The Brooklyn Federal Court issued six full statements of Edgar Veytia in the period from March 2017 to March 2018

General Salvador Cienfuergos, former head of the Ministry of National Defense, was protector of drug trafficker Juan Francisco Patrón Sánchez, "El H-2," the former attorney general of Nayarit, Edgar Veytia, told a Federal Court of the United States.

As published by the Brooklyn Federal Court, corresponding to six full statements by Veytia between March 2017 and March 2018, Cienfuegos was the protector of the boss.

"Veytia began to hear that "El H-2" had a godfather long before. In November 2016, Veytia saw "El H-2" and "H-2" said that person had to be Cienfuegos," says a statement of March 14, 2018.

In addition to this point, Veytia confirmed to prosecutors and agents of the DEA and the FBI that both he and former governor Roberto Sandoval collaborated with Patrón Sánchez in exchange for bribes.

Another character involved with the drug trafficker according to Veytia was the current governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz.

WHO WAS  "EL H-2"?

Juan Francisco Patrón Sánchez was one of those particular individuals who took control of what was left of the Beltrán Leyva Cartel, after the capture of Héctor M, "El H", the last of the brothers who remained active.

Since 2011, the Attorney General's Office of Nayarit (PGJE) placed "El H-2" or "El Chico" among the seven alleged members of cells of the Beltrán Leyva brothers' cartel, which operated in the north and south of the state.

"El H-2" died in February 2017, in an alleged confrontation with the Navy.


General Cienfuegos, head of the Mexican Army during Enrique Peña Nieto's term (2012-2018) was arrested on October 15 in Los Angeles, United States, after an investigation by the DEA, which accused him of links with organized crime and money laundering, but after an unprecedented diplomatic exercise, he was returned to Mexico to be investigated by local authorities.

On January 14, the Attorney General's Office of the Republic reported in a bulletin that no criminal action would be brought against Salvador Cienfuegos because "no evidence was found" that related him to criminal groups or detected irregularities in his patrimony, among other points.

Following the FGR's decision, López Obrador remarked on more than one occasion at the press conference that the "evidence" presented by the DEA "has no probative value" to prosecute Cienfuegos. Furthermore, he saw a certain relationship between the date of Cienfuegos's arrest and the US elections.

"All this needs to be clarified," he stressed. "We maintain that impunity must end, of course corruption. But also that there can be no reprisals, revenge, and that crimes cannot be invented, that no one should act that way," he stressed.

The president remarked that there would be "full transparency" in the case to avoid criticism, and as he assured, the case file was disclosed.

La Silla Rota


  1. Nothing at all is gonna happen to Cienfuegos aka el Padrino

    1. 5:42 well, Cienpedos may have cien dedos pointing at him trying to poke him on the ass, but Cienpedos has his US accomplices by the pussy hairs, even the Unpresidented Disgrace had to let him go without charges, and Mike Vigil said they had his ass fried like a greased pig with evidence.

  2. Innocent of crimes. He just took the mordida, under Amlo there is no corruption. And there is no organized crime.

    1. 11:32 there is evil and the devil himself under GOD,
      more so under AMLO, but unlike Masks, it is not mandated from above...
