A judge halted indefinitely the extradition to the United States of drug lord Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, alias “El Viceroy”, former leader of the Juarez Cartel.
Judge Julio Veredín Sena Velázquez, head of the Seventh District Court for Criminal Matters in Mexico City, suspended the indefinite extradition of the brother of Amado Carrillo Fuentes, alias “El Señor de los Cielos” (Lord of the Skies).
On July 27 of this year, the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) granted the United States Government the extradition of “El Viceroy”, who is wanted by the Federal District Court of the Western District of Texas for money laundering and drug trafficking.
In 2022, El Viceroy received an additional 20-year prison sentence, according to the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), for organized crime to commit crimes against health.
In October 2014, the brother of the Lord of the Skies was arrested and placed at the disposal of a judge in order to be interned in the Federal Center for Social Readaptation 2 “Occidente”, located in Puente Grande, Jalisco.
