José María Guízar Valencia, "El Z-43", stated that during his detention he was a victim of torture by elements of the Ministry of the Navy, for which a judge ordered the PGR to investigate the facts.
In the homologated police report that is part of the investigation file initiated by the PGR against him, it is highlighted that the Navy elements that stopped him passed through the hotel in the Roma neighborhood where he was and they saw him when he supposedly exchanged drug for money. It was not an operation.
Guízar Valencia was linked to prosecution for crimes against health and carrying firearms exclusively used by the Army and Air Force, after the control judge Beatriz Moguez Ancheyta reclassified one of the crimes charged by the PGR.
In the process linking hearing, Guízar's defense offered as an evidence test an expert opinion in fingerprinting made by a specialist attached to the PGR, who concluded that the drug, the weapon, the cartridges and the money do not present fingerprints of any person, in addition to the backpack and wallet are made of a porous material that does not allow a fingerprint examination.
