Salvador Cienfuegos: US drops charges against Mexican ex-minister

US drops charges against Mexican ex-minister
BBC:

A federal judge in New York has granted the US government's request to dismiss the charges against a Mexican ex-minister accused of drug trafficking.

Gen Salvador Cienfuegos, who was Mexico's defence minister from 2012 to 2018, was arrested at Los Angeles airport last month.

Prosecutors said he had links to the "extremely violent" H-2 drug cartel.

But following pressure from Mexico, the US Department of Justice said he should be investigated in his home country.

In a hearing on Wednesday a US federal judge granted the Department of Justice's (DoJ) request.

The prosecutor's office said that it had a strong case against Gen Cienfuegos but that maintaining cooperation between US and Mexican law enforcement authorities was more important than prosecuting the ex-defence minister.

The Mexican government, which had not been informed of the investigation against Gen Cienfuegos, had threatened to "revise" its relationship with the US drug Enforcement Agency.

Gen Cienfuegos arrived back in Mexico on Wednesday after the judge dropped the charges.
