On Tuesday, 19, Roberto Sandoval resigned as governor of Nayarit, and on the same day his nephew - accused of being the financial operator who made his uncle a millionaire - was killed. The next morning the ex-manger fled. In addition, throughout his six years he indebted the state so much that a group of Nayarit citizens denounced him last July before the PGR. Meanwhile, drug trafficking has already begun to sow the region with corpses and narcomantas in which there is talk of the ex-governor's collusion with the Beltran Leyva brothers, who helped put him in power.
MEXICO CITY (Proceso) .- On Tuesday 19, the same day that Roberto Sandoval Castañeda ceased to govern Nayarit, his nephew Hugo Ismael Sánchez Sandoval - accused of being the financial operator who, through "dirty" jobs, helped turn the now ex-agent into millionaire - was killed.
The next day, even without attending the funeral service of his nephew, Sandoval Castañeda fled Nayarit aboard a plane, the same one that used during for the election campaign the now governor of Nuevo Leon, Jaime Rodríguez Calderón, El Bronco. (if you remember this guy campaigned on being tough on crime)
The murder of his nephew is the second blow against Sandoval Castaneda after his exfiscal Edgar Veytia was arrested in San Diego, California, on March 27, accused of conspiring to distribute and distribute drugs to the United States.
Throughout the administration of Sandoval Castañeda in Nayarit, the three characters - the ex-governor, the ex-attorney general and his nephew - accumulated a great number of accusations and denunciations for extortion, robbery, robbery, threats, illicit enrichment, kidnapping, rape, murder, uprisings, fabrication of crimes and drug trafficking (Proceso 1938).
In addition, sources (who asked for anonymity) of the Nayarita administration point out that Veytia's trusted team - agents such as Luis Antonio Torres Valdivia, commander Manuel Eduardo Maldonado Andrade and state ex-state attorney Carlos Alberto Rodríguez Valdez, El Will- consolidated into a powerful criminal group that, once their term concluded, tried to form a local cartel to seize the place of Tepic.
According to the same sources, it seems Roberto Sandoval angered Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho, leader of the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), who at the time operated in several municipalities of Nayarit.
On July 17, in various parts of the state appeared narco mantas addressed to the president: "Mr. Enrique Peña Nieto, look at Nayarit, the heads of office Maldonado, Valdivia, Jimmy, Alejandro Landeros, Victor, Lluviano, Paco Salazar, Eduardo Avalos and Willy are the chiefs of the square of Nayarit and handle the drug sale as ex-striker Edgar Veytia did after betraying H2, have the protection of Roberto Sandoval, who already forgot the money that was given to him by Hector Beltran (Leyva) and H2 to become governor.
And last Sunday, another message appeared, allegedly from the CJNG, along with three corpses: "The Jalisco cartel is operating in Nayarit and Veytia's 'orphans' are jumping ship from the cartel."
What transpired in Nayarit that the murdered, including two former sailors, worked for the cartel of the Beltran Leyva, that operated in Nayarit in conspiracy with the prosecutor Veytia. However, at the end of the state administration they decided to join the CJNG.
On Tuesday 12, in the port of San Blas, other narcomantas appeared that left no doubt about the entrance of Mencho to the capital of Nayarit: "We are already Aki (slang for we are here) (Sic) CJNG we are going to cleanup the extortioners, people of the 18". The 18th is the local boss of the Beltrán Leyva cartel.
In this regard, the newspaper El Sol de Nayarit published: "It is presumed that these narcomensajes would be linked with what happened hours before, where two exmarines, current escorts of the Attorney General of the State - directed by El Willy - and other civilians, among them a minor and a young student, were picked up. "
And finally on the night of Tuesday 19, just hours after his uncle ceased to be governor, Sánchez Sandoval was assassinated. "Shot to death by an armed command while driving aboard a Jeep Cherokee pickup over the Tepic highway, at the height of the Valle Real fractionation," published El Sol de Nayarit.
"Undoubtedly an unprecedented event that makes clear the corruption in which the entire administration of ex-governor Roberto Sandoval Castañeda was buried, 24 hours had not passed since he left power when one of his relatives was already murdered," he said. the newspaper added.
Sánchez Sandoval used to be escorted by at least six state police officers, who were removed when his uncle left office.
Horses and bankruptcy
The ex-judge of the Administrative Court of the State of Nayarit, Emiliano Zapata Sandoval Blasco, assures Proceso that the Nayarit government is bankrupt: "It does not generate wealth, it lives on federal aid and has a debt of more than 20 billion pesos. Roberto Sandoval started governing when the state only having 5 billion pesos of debt.
"Twelve years ago, Governor Roberto Chavarria gave Ney Gonzalez a manageable debt of 400-500 million pesos. Ney turned it into 5 billion of debt. Three years ago, Sandoval said it was 10 billion. Current calculations put it in double ".
For that reason, the former secretary of the city of Tepic, Rodrigo González Barrios, and 10 other Nayarite citizens who were disgruntled presented a complaint last July against Roberto Sandoval.
"When Enrique Peña Nieto announced Obra Centenario - a hydraulic project with a cost of more than 1.5 billion pesos - in Tepic we knew that Sandoval and Veytia seized the lands of the irrigation canal that runs from Tepic to Sinaloa, with help from Hugo Sánchez Sandoval, son of a sister of the governor, and Senator Raymundo García Chávez, who 10 years ago sold tacos in Santiago Ixcuintla, "says Zapata Sandoval Blasco.
Known for his interest in thoroughbred horses, Sandoval Castañeda was involved in a scandal last August when an investigation by Pedro Zamora, a correspondent of Proceso, placed him as a buyer of some of the finest and most expensive horses in the world.
And he and his nephew enjoyed the protection of Enrique Peña Nieto: "In March 2012, as a candidate for the tricolor, Peña Nieto appointed Hugo Ismael Sánchez Sandoval general coordinator of his campaign in Nayarit, nephew of the governor Sandoval Castañeda, who gave him good enough results to obtain 47.1% of the votes, the second best result in the country after Zacatecas, where it reached 51.2%, "said the report by Pedro Zamora.
Leopoldo Domínguez, one of the 10 signatories of the complaint filed in July at the Attorney General's Office (PGR) against the former Nayarite, for illicit enrichment, considers Sánchez Sandoval a key piece of information on the management of public resources during the six-year period of his uncle.
"From the beginning of the six years, entrepreneurs and builders said in short that to be a supplier of the state government or aspiring to build public works you had to go with the nephew of the governor - who ran the permit office in Ciudad del Valle - to know the requirements that were asked. "
"Did those requirements include a commission or 'moche'?" Asked Pedro Zamora.
"Yes," he replied. "There was talk of economic compensation, but I have no documentary evidence because there has been much fear of denouncing, due to the usual reprisals. But all over the state that was secretly said. "
According to Domínguez, the participation of Sánchez Sandoval was given "in a parallel and unofficially." Although he did not hold a public office, "it was always known that he even decided which officials were entering and leaving the government. Apparently that was the amount of the power he had. "
This proximity to the president meant he would take care of his hobbies for him, like the fine horses.
A series of e-mails revealed negotiations between February and March of 2013 between representatives of the company Gap Horse, based in Seville, and Sánchez Sandoval for the shipment of thoroughbred horses by plane.
An invoice issued by Gap Horse on June 25 of that year in the name of Sánchez Sandoval recorded the payment of 56,682.59 euros - which at the current exchange rate are equivalent to $1,187,500 pesos - for the transfer and sanitary documentation of nine horses, one of them called Coqueto RH
In the fiscal document, for which Sánchez Sandoval provided an address in Ciudad del Valle, Nayarit, does not appear the price of the purchase of horses.
In addition, according to a report by Patricia Mayorga published by the agency Apro in October last year, they also did business with cattle. The then president of Chihuahua, César Duarte, was one of the beneficiaries. Also Hugo Ismael Sánchez, who received 575 heads of cattle sent to San Blas - where Sandoval has a ranch; and a brother of the ex-governor Nayarita, Raymundo Sandoval Castañeda, to whom 16 heads of cattle were sent to the small municipality of Ahuacatlán, where he lives.
In declarations to the Nayaritenlinea portal, the administration admitted that the cattle arrived in Nayarit, but were said that they were only brought "to graze" as part of an agreement between local farmers and his relatives with his Chihuahuan cattle pair to deal with the drought in the north of the country at the time; otherwise, the heifers "would have died of starvation."
This case prompted the parliamentary group of the PRD in the Chamber of Deputies to ask last May that the Ministry of the Interior and the PGR investigate the alleged complicity of Sandoval and Duarte in the misuse of public resources.
This report was published on September 24, 2017 in the 2134 issue of Proceso magazine.

Huh,Ceasar Duarte in cohoots with Sandoval!What's that expression about same peas in the same pod?Wonder if EPN is in cahoots with ALL the Governors!
From the other article I posted from the washington Post, political scientists Guillermo Trejo and Sandra Ley found evidence that PRI helps each other. Whether that's directly working together to embezzle money or look the other way to not lifting a finger stop cartel so they can claim to "be tough on crime" the next election I think is splitting hairs.
