WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES - The federal judge in charge of presiding at the trial of Julian Zapata Espinosa “The Tweety”, alleged murderer of U.S. agent, Jaime Zapata, warned the U.S. government will need to ensure close collaboration of the Mexican government to expedite the delivery of evidence, and testimony, or else return the alleged murderer to Mexico.

With the presence in the room of Julian Zapata, alias “El Piolín”, who appeared with the aim off and downcast, the judge turned to hear the parties and set position. With a hair cut military style, a goatee and wearing the usual uniform orange, “The Tweety” just listened to the simultaneous translation of the judge’s arguments, the prosecution and the defense barely looking up or a word. “

If Mexico wants to be a partner (in this case), this implies that they give us what we ask. If you do not want to cooperate, we can send the accused back to their sovereignty,” said Judge Royce Lambert. For me to anticipate and to alleviate any concerns or bureaucratic delay in the delivery and translation of thousands of tests and testimonials that have been collected by the federal authorities in Mexico and the United States, to clarify responsibilities in the murder of agent Jaime Zapata.

In determining the position in the first hearing dedicated to presenting the accused and hearing the first arguments of the prosecution and defense. Judge Lambert also recognized that the case is complex – but still must decide formally on the matter – before the body of evidence to be vented, but insisted that above all the U.S. government will need to ensure close cooperation of Mexico.

Judge Lambert is one of the toughest and the most experienced judges in the courts of the United States, forced the prosecution to ensure that the government of Mexico will cooperate at all times: “We are working very closely with Mexico and fully respect their sovereignty,” said Michael DiLorenzo, the prosecutor who presented a formal request for the judge Lambert to declare ” the complexity “of the trial, an event that would allow the U.S. government to have enough time to make and substantiate each and every one of the tests and evidence that federal agencies have collected in Mexico and the United States along nearly year.

In this sense, the government of Mexico has begun to provide evidence and witnesses under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty, a process that has consumed nearly a year. Indeed, the fact that both the government of Mexico and the United States have enjoyed enough time to gather evidence and submit to the federal courts, was the argument used yesterday counsel for the defendant to request the initiation of the process as soon .

Similarly, the defense of Julian Zapata Espinoza, asked the judge to rule on the “complexity” of the case that his client has enough time to access the tests or refute: “It is almost certain that the court rules for the complexity of the case.

 Among other things it is a judge who is very familiar with the rules and you do not have any fear of the government. And also because the judge wants to prove that the accused have all the guarantees that this country provides, “said Ron Earnest, the lawyer who has been in charge of defending the case of Julian Zapata Espinoza.

“We hope that by April 25, we have a better idea of what evidence the U.S. government already has. And if not, we could postpone it until the month of May, “Earnest forward to confirm the deadlines and the judge set for the process to begin its work and that the U.S. government to become collaboration in ensuring the long and complex requiring help Mexico in a process that could consume nearly a year.

As recently as December 21, Julian Zapata Espinoza pleaded not guilty and remains in jail ever since. The charges against “The Tweety” include murder and attempted murder for the attack on February 15 at noon on a highway that killed the agent Jaime Zapata and injured his colleague Victor Avila, both of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE, for its acronym in English), while traveling to Mexico City after meeting with other U.S. personnel.

Julian Zapata Espinoza, aka “The Tweety” linked to “Los Zetas“, was extradited, and facing trial in federal court in Washington, DC

Julian Zapata Espinoza, alias “El Piolín“, alleged murderer of the agent of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Jaime Zapata last February in Mexico, pleaded not guilty today in federal court Washington.

ICE director John Morton, said Zapata Espinoza was extradited from Mexico to face four charges, including three of murder and carrying a set in the commission of a violent crime.

“Extradition and accusations against Zapata Espinosa is an important step in bringing to justice the attackers of Jaime Zapata and Victor Avila“, another ICE agent who was injured, said Morton.

A grand jury in the District of Columbia issued on 19 April an indictment against Zapata Espinoza for the attempted murder of an officer and two of attempted murder in the case of Avila, but the document had been sealed.

Zapata Espinoza, an alleged member of Los Zetas drug cartel, was captured in Mexico in February along with five of his accomplices. His extradition was requested by the United States last May.

During his detention, the Mexican army said Zapata Espinoza admitted the commission of murder and attributed to confusion about the identity of the agents, who mistook them for members of another organization.

The Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said the extradition and criminal prosecution against Zapata Espinoza show the determination of the administration of President Barack Obama to prosecute attackers Zapata.

“We will continue working with our partners in Mexico to police these violent criminals accountable,” said Breuer.

The deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Kevin Perkins, said the case against Zapata Espinoza is a “significant breakthrough” in the investigation into the death of Zapata agent.

During the hearing of a charge, a judge decided to keep him in jail without bail. His next hearing’s scheduled for Jan. 25 in Washington

Mexican drug cartels move $50 billion in bulk product and bundled cash across the border!

This undated image provided by the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office shows Manssor Arbabsiar. The Obama administration on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011 accused agents of the Iranian government of being involved in a plan to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the thwarted plot would further isolate Tehran.

The supposed Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States hoped to involve a Mexican drug cartel but thankfully the solicited man was a DEA informant which resulted in the terror bust. However, the case raises the question whether a narco organization would entertain dirty work for Muslim terrorists. Unfortunately, the answer is a likely yes.

Indeed, the Mexican drug cartels in fact already have engaged in terrorist acts against American officials on both sides of the border: in March 2010 the Juarez cartel whacked U.S. consulate employee Lesley Ann Enriquez and her husband El Paso sheriff’s deputy Arthur Redelfs as they were returning home from a child’s birthday party in Ciudad Juarez; in December 2010 the Sinaloa cartel murdered U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry in southern Arizona; and in Feburary 2011 Los Zetas killed ICE agent Jaime Zapata and wounded his partner who were driving along a highway in the state of San Luis Potosi in a vehicle with U.S. diplomatic tags.

The drug cartels long ago diversified their rackets to pursue any illicit activity from which they can profit ranging from cargo theft to sex trafficking. Engaging in murder-for-hire or other atrocities on behalf of a terrorist group simply would be another revenue stream for the crime groups which already have demonstrated their cavalier willingness to target U.S. officials. Indeed, it’s not simply the drug cartels themselves which are a threat but further include any splinter group or rogue member within the larger organization willing to engage in some freelance work with a side deal.

The Mexican drug cartels move $50 billion in bulk product and bundled cash across the border each year, and they have well-entrenched supply lines, distribution networks and operational cells in hundreds of cities across the United States. Law enforcement and security officials long have known that the porous border and the cartel network have been the weak links in U.S. security, and now it’s time to stop denying the threat that the narco traffickers pose and start taking them down.
