U.S. Drops Drug Charges Against Fmr. Mexican Secretary of Defense


U.S. prosecutors dismissed drug trafficking charges against Mexico’s former secretary of defense Tuesday. The alleged narco-general nicknamed “the Godfather” is expected to be sent home to face charges “if appropriate.”

In a joint statement issued by the U.S. Department of Justice and Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (FGR), prosecutors dismissed all charges filed against General Salvador Cienfuegos so he can be “if appropriate, charged under Mexican law.”

Mexico’s FGR statement also used the “if appropriate” wording, raising red flags as to the future of any prosecution.

Gracias a la estrecha relación entre @TheJusticeDept y #FGR, nuestra homologa norteamericana tomo la decisión de solicitar a la Jueza que se desestimen los cargos penales contra Salvador Cienfuegos, para que sea investigado y, en su caso, procesado acorde con las leyes mexicanas. pic.twitter.com/xMvP0QRudG
