Mexico’s ex-defense minister faces five drug trafficking charges in US

Mexico’s ex-defense minister faces five drug trafficking charges in US

rt - 5 days ago

Former Mexican Defense Minister Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda, who has been arrested in Los Angeles, is now facing five charges in the US related to drug trafficking, Mexicos foreign minister has said.

The arrested general is expected to be transferred to New York shortly, a senior diplomat, Marcelo Ebrard, said on Twitter, citing the country’s consulate in Los Angeles.

Cienfuegos, who was in office from 2012 to 2018, was arrested late on Thursday at Los Angeles International Airport on a Drug Enforcement Administration warrant.

The high-profile arrest was praised by President Andrés Manuel Lopéz Obrador. He pledged to suspend any officials who might be implicated in the case against Cienfuegos, launching a fresh attack on his predecessors and blaming them for rampant corruption.
