“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
Video translation is as follows:
The trial that passed off 34 years in the past for the homicide of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent Enrique Kiki Camarena should be reopened after a federal decide decided that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) introduced false proof that affected the method, which might suggest a brand new gathering of proof and witnesses.
MILENIO obtained a judicial doc dated March 23, 2023, which reveals that federal decide John A. Kronstadt ordered to reopen the trial for the homicide of the anti-drug company agent, after one of many final two individuals sentenced for the crime -Raúl López Álvarez, former judicial police officer of Guadalajara, town the place Camarena was tortured and murdered-, demonstrated that his trial was not carried out in accordance with the legislation, attributable to a collection of irregularities dedicated by FBI technical personnel.
The federal decide emphasised that regardless that the costs have been quashed, López Álvarez will be unable to acquire bail and should conduct this new trial from a jail cell. And he affirmed that the method should start inside 180 days after the publication of this sentence.
The sentences handed down in the USA towards the defendants for the homicide of Kiki Camarena, dedicated on February 9, 1985, have been primarily based on proof that’s now identified to be flawed, introduced by an unscrupulous, inaccurate and corrupt FBI agent, Michael Malone, then head of the FBI’s Hair and Fiber Laboratory Unit.
Just a few days in the past, Ken Salazar, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, invited Manuel Bartlett to attend a working assembly within the U.S., a matter that generated controversy attributable to the truth that for years it has been stated that the previous Secretary of the Inside and present director of the Federal Electrical energy Fee (CFE) may very well be prosecuted in that nation for his alleged participation within the homicide of Kiki Camarena.
