Genaro García Luna

US authorities announced on Tuesday that among the evidences against Genaro Garcia Luna, former Mexican Secretary of Public Security accused of drug trafficking, are video recordings of him with another inmate in New York and Google Earth images.

Prosecutors also plan to use financial documents and property records from Mexico, Colombia, Barbados, and Panama to frame him of organized crime involvement.

García Luna was Secretary of Public Security from 2006 to 2012, during the presidency of Felipe Calderon. He left Mexico at the end of Calderon’s presidency and moved to Miami, where he established permanent residency. In 2018, he filed for US citizenship. However, he was arrested in Texas in December 2019 after being accused by federal authorities in New York of supporting the Sinaloa Cartel.

Investigators say he provided protection to the cartel and received millions of dollars from Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, once considered Mexico’s most-wanted drug lord.

As reported by Borderland Beat, Garcia Luna hid more than US$50 million dollars in tax havens through a network of companies. The places he laundered money included the US, Mexico, Barbados, Hong Kong, Israel, Latvia, Panama, the UK, Cyprus and Curaçao.

Garcia Luna’s next hearing is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. on 23 June 2021 in New York.
