The federal government announced with great relevance the capture of José María Guízar Valencia, alias the "Z-43", considered current leader of the diminished Los Zetas cartel. What was not said publicly is that the testimony of this character acquires special relevance in the middle of the presidential race: his rise in the world of organized crime arose from a dispute against two relatives of Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
There is nothing that links directly to the presidential candidate of Morena-PES-PT in these dirty businesses of the narco. Just suggesting the issue this season sounds like an unfounded dirty war.
In the biography of Guízar Valencia it appears that his first steps in the world of crime were given to be part of a band known as Los Michoacanos, belonging to the Millennium cartel or the Los Valencia cartel. The Michoacanos became news when in 2006 riddled the PRED mayor of Huimanguillo, Tabasco, Walter Herrera Ramírez, allegedly in revenge because he and his chief of police first murdered six of his criminal organization. One of those murdered was Antonio Guízar Valencia, brother of "Z-43".
According to what was reported in the press twelve years ago, José Ramiro López Obrador, then leader of the PRD mayors of Tabasco, came out in defense of the bullet-riddled municipium, accused of protecting these Mata-Valencias. Intelligence reports from that time revealed, and it was published, that José Miguel Guízar Valencia paid $ 30,000 to a kaibil (former Guatemalan elite soldier) for executing the Palenque plaza chief, named José Martín Flores Torruco, a political nephew of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (husband of a daughter of Martín, one of his six brothers).
According to the Cisen and Navy investigation, the recently arrested "Z-43" was involved in all that killing. He still did not play the leadership role he played at the time of his capture a few days ago in Mexico City.
Well informed sources tell me that in a first informal testimony, in conversation with his captors, he released an accusation that could be explosive for the political life ... of Guatemala: he said that he contributed to finance the presidential campaign of former president Otto Pérez Molina, who He was accused of acts of corruption. He explained that the money would have sent him through a certain Jesús Torres Solórzano, nicknamed "El W" or "El Comegusanos", with the objective that during his mandate they let Los Zetas operate freely in that country.
When they asked him about Mexico, they assure me, he said that "he kept it for later", maybe with the idea of negotiating with the authorities some privileges in exchange for speaking.
What will you say officially?
SACIAMORBOS. He told them that last year the Monument to the Revolution, the Statue of Liberty, an eagle and some nopales, and the crucified Christ were tattooed on their torso and arms.
Some new information is coming out about the arrest of "Z-43" and it was not the result of a planned operation. Apparently marines or some other government agents were driving by the Marbella hotel and noticed an individual giving a second individual cash in exchange for a package which raised suspicion and led to his arrest. He was captured with a .45 millimeter pistol with five bullets, 1.272 kilograms of meth, and an envelope containing 5,000 pesos.
