Carlos Orlet Since Joaquin El Chapo Guzman escaped from the maximum security prison in Puente Grande, Jalisco, in January 2001, there was no image of the former public official who was key to allow him to escape, the same man who later became his partner and Compadre, and who today the federal government locates as the heir who is managing to stay in control of the Sinaloa cartel: Dámaso López Nuñez, alias El Licenciado.
After 15 years, the face of who is about to become the new head of the Sinaloa Cartel was updated in the Federal Government's information bases.
Official intelligence sources shared a video in which Dámaso López Nuñez appears as alias "El Licenciado". It is the first video that is revealed about a character who today is considered central in the world of drug trafficking in Mexico. And it can be consulted on the website of this newspaper as well as on www.carlosloret.com
This is what the federal authorities explained to me about how they got the recent image of the capo, why the audio and video quality is relatively good, as well as why Dámaso López turns to the camera on constant occasions:
In the middle of the dispute over the Sinaloa Cartel, Dámaso López and his son, nicknamed El Mini-Lic, would have sought out computer professionals to implement a campaign through social networks to blame the children of "El Chapo" Behind the violence unleashed in Sinaloa, and thus motivate that the authority acted against them. Therefore, they located a hacker.
The authority assures me that in that period he established communication with this hacker and co-opted him to participate as an ally of the government. So he started working undercover. How did you gain the trust of the people of Los Damasos? By offering them inside information that the United States authorities allegedly had about the cartel.
To be believed, the hacker sent a photo of the security chief of Lopez Nuñez, known as El 15. The licensee, interested in what the US government supposedly knew about him, wanted to meet personally with the hacker and traveled discreetly since The Sierra de Sinaloa to a seafood restaurant in the direction of the Monument to the Revolution, in Mexico City.
At that meeting the video was recorded.
According to the official report, when the appointment was agreed, no one in the cartel told the hacker who would meet and even during the meeting in the seafood store, the hacker, who is not an expert on narco topics, did not know either who was. After the meeting, when he delivered the video of the interlocutor, authorities and hacker were surprised.
According to Mexican officials, thanks to an application that installed the hacker in his own phone, while showing photos of the members of his cartel, the device recorded video and audio, which is why El Licenciado appears looking at the camera of the telephone.
Intelligence work would have made it possible to detect later that night Dámaso López Nuñez slept in the Camino Real hotel in southern Mexico City, and not in a family department that the authority has located in the area of Santa Fe.
The cartel was discovered discovered and the hacker went to the United States protected by the government of that country.
Having some trouble understanding the translation. So the Mexican gov sent a undercover agent to act as a hacker who wants to help Lic spread propaganda basically? Soo why do I feel like its a dumb question then to ask why the gov't didnt arrest him? They knew where he was, and he was vulnerable as hell being so far from home turf they couldve easily snatched him?
Ok this leads me to believe who really hit the wachos in culiacan and the real true reason why los chapitos wrote those letters avoid being ambushed by the damasos while they were companied by mayo n the letter about having nothing to do with the Military ambush aswell as the family lawyer right after both occasions the authenticity of those letters. I still don't think el lic has the juice to take the cartel aligning with mencho a diffrent story
In order for DAMASO to claim he is the benefactor and leader of the SINALOA Cartel he has to take over the golden Triangle something chapo or mayo never had the balls to do .EL HR has way more stripes than DAMASO and his credits don't come from instagram.where's DAMASO at for pancho chimal good luck getting a pass from El pinto to cross badiraguato .DAMASO does his own thing in El Dorado that's it and no one is interested of doing nothing there .DAMASOS having ties with chimales is as close to the golden Triangle there gonna get .he has no pass to enter those territories.
Damaso will always be a chump to them if he can't grow his own supply I'm pretty sure he is limited in El dorado!is that why maybe he's trying to cut shipment cost with setting up his transporters at the border but looks like that's far from happening also ?far from being a leader !Damaso hit to many imaginary trump walls to expand further for the moment .
The only thing that's stopping CJNG and CDS all out war is the precursors CJNG supplies all of Mexico they can't even denie selling it to CDS cause government don't care about territorial disputes that's personal .the only thing Damaso would be good use for CJNG would be if CJNG wanted to take sinaloa and in reality they would only be taking El dorado and that's not sinaloa.other than that Damaso Is dead beach wood for them!
He was more worth with him in the mayo n chapitos circle than out i believe they were the whistle blowers to allow the kidnapping but i still dont see how in the world they were let free out of that ordeal but mochomito in prison, h9 n h2 dead hector gone to n chapito isidro working out in monterrey on his own account that really didnt pan out for damaso if he sided with the blo or cjng. Wouldnt be suprised if he gets clipped or captured soon
Supposedly DEA is in sinaloa with SEMAR looking for somebody .the person of intrst they are looking for has lots of characteristics of El mini lic .then again damaso knows all the biggest rats in politics in the state that can tip him off .
i doubt the video was a live feed directly to the gov. Says that the hacker had no clue who he had in front of him until shortly after they reviewed the film. for El Lic to be roaming around mexico (DF) tells me he has ppl in high power to be roaming in others turf without worries.
I do believe that El Lic has been wanting to eradicate los chapitos to seize control of el cartel. he knows he can dominate los chapitos not el Quito Mes.
what i wanna know is: did the hacker contact los gringos and advise them that "someone" from the CDS wanted his services or was it the mexican gov? because after they found out video was leaked, the hacker took refuge in the U.S. so it must have been the CIA of DEA who assisted in this matter. Damaso is a dead man walking, if i was him i would put Mini Lic in hiding for long time since everyone will be on a look out for them.
Im with u that damaso time is ticking n luckys info about sounds like they might be hunting mini lic unless they remove themselves from sinaloa territory cuz i honestly think Beltranes are out of the equation in sinaloa they took too much hits to be protecting los lics n with the whole azulito escaping with el 20 n the clan they also don't have the esparragozas maybe carrillos but they strength is in chihuahua will see how this novela plays out
But he knows who el Quincenas is who is more low profile and only happens to be family of El licencido .how is this hacker getting his information if he doesn't know anything about narcos what type hacker is he ?never heard of a gossip hacker !
Plane and simple sierras are for cultivation and city's are to launder money .Mexico city is no good for cultivation that's why there is no dominant cartel there only narcomenudeo bandas like Los mopets😁
