The U.S. government condemned “energetically” the recent attacks against the company Sabritas, a subsidiary of U.S. multinational PepsiCo in Mexico, and reiterated its commitment to fight organized crime.

“The United States strongly condemns these attacks and all acts of criminal violence,” he said in a statement the State Department, which said the embassy of the American Union in Mexico City has been in contact with Mexican authorities and company representatives.

As of press time, in relation to the facts, are detained four people in Guanajuato.

The State Department praised the “courage” and “determination” of the president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, the Mexican government and people face the “challenges and threats of transnational criminal organizations.”

“America will continue to help in Mexico’s efforts to disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations, in strict accordance with the law and respect for Mexican sovereignty,” said the note.

On Tuesday, the company Sabritas, which is still assessing the damage, denied having been extorted or threatened.

Meanwhile, the Army and Federal Police are investigating the possible involvement of the criminal group of Knights Templar, which maintains ties to drug gangs in South America and other states.


In Michoacan, Sabritas representatives submitted to the State Attorney’s Office PGJE, complaints related to fire in the warehouses of Lazaro Cardenas, Apatzingan and Uruapan.

According to information from the PJGE, last Tuesday there were reports from the first incident in the port city, a couple of hours after the lawsuit was settled in the municipality located in the hot ground.

The report of the third assault reported in the city of Uruapan was filed during the early hours of yesterday, and officially started the preliminary investigation regarding the transnational conflagrations.

Meanwhile Hector Gomez Trujillo, state leader of the National Action Party, criticized the inaction of the authorities responsible for Michoacan law enforcement regarding the investigations.

“No single action taken by the Attorney General the attorney did not see him step up and get involved in the investigation, no arrests or research was done and is very clear what is happening,” said PAN.

Trujillo Gomez expected to have achieved results and to find those responsible for these criminal acts in Michoacan. “All these actions are the courts responsibility and the injuries and you have to read the state penal code and take action or make a report.”

The State Police protects Sabritas and the seven facilities in the state, while operating to deter crime is common. Federal Police and the army travel to the 113 municipalities in Michoacan.
