Mexico seeking extradition of former security chief from U.S.: newspaper

REUTERS/Jane Rosenberg/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s attorney general is seeking the extradition from the United States of a former security minister wanted on corruption charges, but only after his U.S. trial is concluded, a local newspaper reported on Sunday. Reuters could not independently confirm the report by Milenio, which cited officials with the attorney general’s office. Garcia Luna pled not guilty last month to U.S. charges stemming from a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme allegedly designed to boost the Sinaloa cartel once headed by jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Garcia Luna is accused of taking suitcases of cash from the cartel to ensure safe passage for its drugs as well as passing on information about its rivals. Citing sources, Milenio said Garcia Luna would be tried in the United States before being extradited to Mexico.

REUTERS/Jane Rosenberg/File PhotoEx-Security Minister Genaro Garcia Luna pled not guilty last month to U.S. charges involving a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme allegedly designed to boost the Sinaloa cartel once headed by jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. The new arrest warrant was issued on Friday and resulted from a charge of illegal enrichment in Mexico, according to an official with the attorney general’s office. “We already have an arrest warrant against Garcia Luna and we’re studying the viability of requesting and starting his extradition process,” the official said. Milenio newspaper reported earlier on Sunday that an extradition request would follow the conclusion of the former minister’s trial in the United States. Garcia Luna is accused of taking suitcases of cash from the Sinaloa cartel to ensure safe passage for its drugs as well as passing on information about its rivals.

The demonstration and the meeting were rare events in the communist-run island where dissent is not tolerated. At the end officials agreed to review the case of the jailed rapper and to hold future talks over their complaints on freedom of expression. Authorities said the expulsion was necessary because one of the 14 members had recently arrived from Mexico and had not quarantined appropriately. The group was protesting the imprisonment of one of their members, rapper Denis Solis. Only one of the 14 members of the original group was present at the protest Friday night.

Pope's new cardinal in Mexico known for indigenous outreach

Slideshow ( 3 images )MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Among the new cardinals formally installed by Pope Francis on Saturday is an outspoken Mexican cleric who has spent decades ministering to the mostly poor, indigenous communities near the country’s southern border with Guatemala. The 80-year-old Arizmendi, author of more than 30 books and a regular newspaper columnist, is just past the cut-off age to be able to vote in future papal conclaves, where new popes are elected. Over the past decade, he has also railed against what he described as the spread of “homosexualism” from cities to rural areas. The most high-profile new cardinal is Wilton Gregory, the 72-year-old archbishop of Washington D.C. and first-ever African American selected. While Europe still has the largest share of cardinals under the age of 80 with 41%, that is down from 52% in 2013 when Francis became the first Latin American pope.

Prosecutors in El Salvador this week filed criminal charges against 1,152 members of organized crime groups in the country, primarily MS-13 and 18th Street gangs, the statement said. In Guatemala, authorities executed 80 search warrants, arrested 40 individuals and served 29 arrest warrants against people already in custody, all of whom are members of the 18th Street gang and MS-13, the DOJ said. In Honduras, the one-week joint operation resulted in the arrest of over 75 MS-13 and 18th Street gang members and five police officers and the execution of over 10 search warrants.

Diego Maradona was perhaps the greatest player ever to kick a soccer ball. "He transcended the sport," Jon Smith, a leading British sports agent who represented Maradona between 1986 and 1991, told NBC News. Maradona was buried Thursday having spent the day lying in state at the Casa Rosada, Argentina's presidential palace.

Exclusive: Second Mexico investment plan worth up to $10 billion - sources

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The second package of infrastructure investments assembled between the Mexican government and the private sector is worth up to about 200 billion pesos ($10 billion), according to two people familiar with the matter. Lopez Obrador said on Nov. 6 the next bundle of private sector-backed investments would soon be unveiled. The planned investments should be worth in the region of 170-200 billion pesos, though details are still being finalized, the two sources said. A third private sector investment package could be ready by early February, one of the sources said. Lopez Obrador has veered between condemning business interests as a corollary of political corruption, and underlining private investment’s importance to economic growth.

MEXICO CITY—Mexico’s economy bounced back in the third quarter, led by increases in industrial output as business reopened from shutdowns to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but activity remained well below its year-earlier level, revised data show. Gross domestic product, a measure of output in goods and services, expanded a seasonally adjusted 12.1% in the July-September period following a record 17% contraction in the second quarter, the National Statistics Institute said Thursday.

MEXICO CITY—Mexican security forces captured the alleged mastermind of a 2019 massacre that killed nine members of a breakaway Mexican-American Mormon community, an attack that shocked the U.S. and Mexico and strained bilateral relations. The suspect was identified by a senior Mexican official as Roberto González, who is known as “The 32” and is considered one of the chieftains of Mexican gang La Línea. Mexican authorities said the suspect was arrested this week with two other members of his gang in the northern state of Chihuahua....

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico City has launched a test-and-trace approach to containing the coronavirus, after a rise in hospitalizations that has raised fears of a new economic lockdown in one of the world’s largest urban centers. Mexico City is proposing to double the number of daily coronavirus tests to 10,000 by adding rapid testing at pop-up sites in highly populated areas, health centers and at sports stadiums including the legendary Azteca Stadium. “The goal...is to break the chain of contagion by identifying and isolating positive cases early,” the Mexico City Health Department said in a statement to Reuters, adding that the testing would continue until the infection curve was flattened. Luis Alvarez, a 54-year-old Mexico City resident, said he thought the program made sense. Across Mexico, the novel coronavirus has infected over a million people and killed nearly 103,000, according to health secretary data.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico captured a gang leader accused of being the mastermind behind the massacre of nine women and children of U.S.-Mexican origin, authorities confirmed on Wednesday, a move that Washington hailed as a victory for bilateral cooperation. The multi-year investigation and case against the four-star general was dropped last week in a bombshell decision that U.S. prosecutors said was necessary to assure bilateral security cooperation. Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau congratulated Mexican security forces for the new arrests. Reuters reported last week that Mexico had committed to the arrest of a high-level cartel leader under a deal to drop U.S. the drug trafficking charges against Cienfuegos. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and the U.S. Department of Justice have denied a deal.

Alejandro Encinas, deputy interior minister responsible for human rights, said there had been 138 homicides of journalists since 2010, 38 of them since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office on Dec. 1, 2018. Mexico is often ranked one of most dangerous countries for journalists to work in, and Lopez Obrador took power vowing to bring down violence and step up protections for media workers. However, murders of journalists have risen in tandem with record levels of homicides in Mexico as a whole, much of it fueled by rampant violence among feuding drug cartels. The most dangerous states for journalists since Lopez Obrador took office have been Sonora, Guerrero, Veracruz and Michoacan, according to the government’s figures.

Maradona is best known for captaining Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, where he was named the tournament's best player and scored two of its most famous goals. In 2008, Maradona became Argentina's manager and led the team at the 2010 World Cup, where it was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

MEXICO CITY - Mexican church and civic leaders on Monday canceled an annual gathering that attracts massive crowds of Catholic pilgrims to protect people amid an intensifying coronavirus outbreak. The feast day of the Virgen de Guadalupe, or Virgin of Guadalupe celebrated on Dec. 12 typically features lavish pageantry at her namesake basilica in the north of Mexico City where throngs of pilgrims arrive on their knees in prayer. But this year the festivities will move online, according to a statement issued by the bishops’ conference and city government. “The health conditions the country is experiencing due to COVID-19 do not permit us at this time to celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe together at her sanctuary,” the statement said. The closure will run from Dec. 10 through Dec. 13, and a security perimeter will be erected to ensure compliance.

REUTERS/Edgard GarridoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Walmart’s Mexico unit said on Monday it was notified by Mexico’s federal competition authority that it is being investigated for possible antitrust behavior in the supply and distribution market of wholesale goods and retail of these goods and services. The federal competition authority Cofece said it could not comment on Walmart’s statement. In a Nov. 4 study, Cofece said there was a need to facilitate the entry of more competitors to the retail market. In the study, Cofece identified Walmart and Soriana, and to a lesser degree Chedraui, as the main players with a national presence.
