New York. – A New York federal judge rejected once again the trial postponement of former Mexican governor Mario Villanueva Madrid, so it remains on schedule for early October and the verdict before the end of 2012.

During a hearing held on Friday, Judge Victor Marrero rejected an additional 90 days to postpone the trial, as requested by the new lawyers of former governor of the southern Mexican state of Quintana Roo, David Zapp and his daughter Johanna.

Marrero said the court has its deadlines and would not grant a further extension, especially because it has postponed at least twice in the trial, which includes allegations of both drug trafficking and money laundering.

The judge said it would take about six weeks to conclude the trial, whose verdict will be decided unanimously by a jury composed of 12 citizens chosen at random.

During today’s hearing, Zapp said that they had just taken the case, in relief of attorney Linda George, who in turn replaced David Segal – and required additional time to study the evidence relied on by prosecutors to file charges. Zapp, a lawyer for Panamanian origin which was communicated in Spanish with Villanueva Madrid during the hearing, was also the legal representative for less than a year for the Mexican businessman of Chinese origin Ye Gon on charges of trafficking pseudoephedrine.

Speaking to the media after the hearing, Zapp said the request to postpone the trial of Villanueva Madrid was not a strategy to delay the case resolution but simply because he had just started his performance. He further clarified that the change is normal firm that has made Villanueva, who simply felt more comfortable with Zapp and the fact that he spoke Spanish. “The irony is that someone can have the idea of seeking to postpone the trial. He (Villanueva) would like to end this as soon as possible to prove his innocence. And as they say in America: Prove it or shut up, “said Zapp.

The lawyer reiterated that Villanueva was in a good mood and healthy, according to Zapp, is convinced of his innocence, and hopes to present the evidence to prove it. Zapp said the case is “a political issue in Mexico,” but ruled out completely the court and federal prosecutors in New York to take into account the case elements that were not strictly legal.

He further stated that at trial the prosecution presented a series of witnesses who “have little incentive to lie,” for they were dealers and drug offenders who would be offered a reduction of his sentence should cooperate with the prosecution.

The prosecutor “knows how to get some witnesses to agree with them and tell them that by working together can reduce their sentence” said Zapp.

Villanueva was extradited to the U.S. on May 10, 2010 accused of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the Juarez cartel in exchange for facilitating the export of 200 tons of cocaine into the United States, according to authorities federal Americans.

The former governor was indicted for the crime of money laundering, after allegedly laundered about $ 19 million in drug money through accounts at the now defunct investment bank Lehman Brothers, among other.

If convicted, Villanueva would face a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum of life imprisonment on charges of drug trafficking, and a minimum of 20 years for each of the 14 charges  of money laundering.

Murder for Christmas in Cancun!

 

Christmas death in Cancun

Christmas death in Cancun

Two main groups operate in Cancun; Los Zetas and a late arrival known as Los Pelones. There are also reports that La Familia Michoacana has made inroads into Cancun and they may now control the drug trade in the tourist resort area of the city. 

The tourist areas facing the Caribbean are safe for visitors but the same cannot be said for the mainland city where the low wage tourist industry workers live, and a high crime rate persists.  The latest victim of cartel warfare was Domingo Jiménez Pérez, 34 years old, and originally from the state of Chiapas.  Jimenez’s decapitated body was found Thursday night in the interior of a taxi that had been carjacked earlier that afternoon.

The head was also in the taxi’s interior.  A narco message was placed next to the body that included a drawing of a christmas tree and read: Esto le va a pasar a toda la gente del Mosco, Enrique Salinas Espino alias El Papaya, Homero Figueroa Meza alias El Tripa, El Burro y todos los que lo ayudan. Feliz Navidad, Jo, Jo, Jo”  This will happen to all the people of el Mosco; Enrique Salinas Espino, El Papaya; Homero Figueroa Meza, El Tripa; El Burro and all those that help them.  Merry Christmas, jo jo jo. 

 The Quintana Roo media did not mention a signature on the message.  El Mosco has been identified as Dámasso Antonio Lanché Avila, a bulk used clothes salesman that has been linked to Los Pelones and is said to be a cell leader of that group.  El Mosco survived an attempt on his life last month and may have been seriously injured.  Two other men were executed in Cancun last week . They were identified as Alfredo Arciga Paniagua and José Diego Morán Favila, both used car salesmen.

Their bodies were found inside a vehicle that was abandoned behind a private school in Cancun. Both had died from gunshot wounds and may have been executed by the same killers as Thursday’s homicide.  The men’s relatives stated that both victims were killed by Los Zetas for being unable to pay an extortion “cuota”.  Another explanation for the killing is that both men may be linked to Los Pelones and El Mosco. The Christmas themed message found in the vehicle read:  “Por extorsionadores y por ratas. Feliz Navidad Jo Jo Jo Jo”.  For being extortionists and rats. Merry Christmas Jo Jo Jo
