Italy refused Tomas Yarrington extradition to Mexico
The Italian justice denied Tuesday the extradition to Mexico of Tomás Yarrington, former governor of Tamaulipas for the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).
The authorities justified their decision arguing that in Mexican prisons there are multiple violations of Human Rights.
"(In Mexican prisons there is) a chronic, constant and systematic situation of violation of human rights, both because of the violence suffered by the prisoners and because of the serious crimes committed within them, as well as because of the conditions of detention," he said. largest Italian court.
Due to these inconsistencies, they considered that the necessary conditions do not exist for the extradition to be carried out, since returning to Mexico represents a risk for the PRI since it does not have "adequate protection from the Mexican government."
After the ruling, the Yarrington case was again turned over to the Florence Court of Appeal.
NEXT DESTINATION: UNITED STATES OR FREEDOM The Italian authorities also rejected the appeals filed by the defense of Tomás Yarrington that sought to obstruct the extradition of the former governor to the United States.
This, because the agreements between Italy and the United States allow the extradition of the accused even if the accused's guilt is not proven.
The United States requested the extradition of the PRI for his alleged relationship with drug cartels.
"The investigations carried out in the United States would have shown the participation of the accused in drug trafficking and money laundering operations, using large sums of cash," said the Italian Court's decision.
It will be the Italian Minister of Justice who decides whether Tomás Yarrington is extradited to the American Union.
In the event that a decision is not made within a "45-day period" counted as of February 26, 2017, the former governor of Tamaulipas could be released.
Corruption is everywhere, but Europe is not one country, dude. Take a look at the corruption perception index and see how the index varies, especially going north to south, as a matter of guess, I am pretty sure it varies just as much going north to south in Italy, which is virtually two countries.
