26, 20151121 Second in Command of Jalisco New Generation Cartel is captured in Guadalajara (Editor: Victoria Dittmar, 63KB)
Ivan Cazarín Molina, second in command of one of Mexico’s most violent cartels, Jalisco New Generation (Jalisco Nueva Generación or CNJG) was captured last Thursday in the city of Guadalajara. He is presumed to have planned the attacks on the 1st May against the federal police, where a helicopter was teared down and several roads blocked with burning trucks. Although this is a victory for the Mexican government – which had been losing legitimacy due to its poor performance in terms of security management – it is expected that more violence will erupt between the CJNG and the federal forces in order to demand the release of Cazarín.
The CJNG is guilty of drug traffick, homicides, stealing of oil, kidnappings, human traffick, drug production and money laundering.
