Genaro García Luna. Pablo Gómez, Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF), reported that Genaro García Luna, Mexico’s former Minister of Public Security, built a corruption network that allowed him to have 30 contracts with 44 different companies. From these contracts, US$745.9 million were extracted from public resources.

García Luna is being processed in Florida for five crimes, four of them related to drug trafficking. The alleged crimes entail participation in corporate crime, conspiracy for global distribution of cocaine, conspiracy for the distribution and possession of cocaine and conspiracy for cocaine import. The fifth alleged crime is for giving false testimony to US authorities.

Collection Center at AIFA. The Mexican Army will open a collection center at the Military Base 1 in the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) to ship relief supplies to those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey.

Minister of Defense Luis Cresencio Sandoval announced that the Mexican government will buy food and supplies for humanitarian aid but is also calling on people to donate different products. Among the requested commodities are beans, canned vegetables, rice, tuna, sardines, chickpeas and thermal clothes.

In regards to Syria, the country announced that humanitarian aid will be received and delivered through the United Nations (UN).

Luis Cárdenas Palomino. The Head of UIF, Pablo Gómez accused judges of protecting Luis Cárdenas Palomino, former head of the Federal Investigation Agency (AFI). Cárdenas Palomino worked closely with Genaro García Luna. Today, Palomino has a blocked account with MX$5.5 million (US$290,000).

Moreover, Gómez explained that due to the tribunal’s resolution to grant protection to Cárdenas Palomino, he will be able to carry out activities in the Mexican financial system.
