(MEXICO CITY) JUST IN: Men claiming to speak for CJNG the most powerful drug cartel have released a video threatening to murder a prominent female news anchor over what they deem to be unfair coverage #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.11: He complained that Milenio Television was favouring so-called self-defence groups organised to resist the CJNG: In the video, journalist Azucena Uresti is threatened directly.

#AceDailyNews says a Mexican drug cartel threatens to kill TV reporter for unfair coverage and the warning was made by a man who said it was on behalf of the leader of the Jalisco New Generation cartel (CJNG).

“I will make you eat your words even if they accuse me of femicide,” the masked speaker, who is surrounded by six heavily armed men, warns.

He accuses Ms Uresti and the Milenio network of being biased in their coverage of the battle between the cartel and vigilante groups.

Ms Uresti is one of the best-known TV anchors in Mexico and presents Milenio TV’s nightly news programme. 

She gained further visibility when she anchored some of the presidential debates ahead of the 2018 election and was widely praised for the questions she posed to the candidates. 

Groups representing journalists have come out in her support and demanded that the government offer her protection. 

Presidential spokesman Jesús Ramírez Cuevas tweeted that the government would “take the necessary measures to protect threatened journalists and news outlets,” but President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is often critical of the media, has yet to comment on the threat.

Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries in the world to be a journalist. But while attacks on local reporters are common, such public warnings are rare.

In the past weeks, there have been fierce battles between members of the CJGN and vigilante groups in the state of Michoacán for control of the region west of the capital, Mexico City. 

The vigilantes say they have taken up arms to defend themselves against the attacks of the cartel, whose leader, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, is one of the country’s most wanted men. The US is offering a $10m (£7.2m) reward for information leading to his capture.

But the groups are controversial with some analysts saying that they often turn criminal themselves or act as a cover for rival criminal groups. 

The area has been the scene of clashes between vigilante groups and criminal organisations for years but in recent weeks the gun battles have been particularly fierce and sometimes lasted for days.

Ms Uresti interviewed one of the vigilantes involved in the fight for control of the town of Ecatepec earlier this month.

The vigilante alleged that the CJNG would “kill everyone” in the town if they managed to defeat those defending it. 

But in the video, the masked man alleges that the vigilante groups are in fact drug traffickers themselves and extort money from the local population.

(WASHINGTON) Justice Dept Court Report: The daughter of the leader of the Mexican drug trafficking organisation known as the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), a dual U.S.-Mexican citizen, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.13: The six businesses were designated for providing material support to the narcotics trafficking activities of the CJNG, which was itself designated by OFAC in April 2015. Oseguera Gonzalez’s father, Nemesio Ruben Oseguera Cervantes, aka “El Mencho,” who is the leader of CJNG, and her uncle, Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, who is the leader of the Los Cuinis drug trafficking organization, were also sanctioned by OFAC in April 2015.

WASHINGTON: Daughter of Notorious Mexican Cartel Leader she was willfully engaging in financial dealings with Mexican companies that had been identified as specially designated narcotics traffickers by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (OFAC).

Jessica Johanna Oseguera Gonzalez, 34, of Guadalajara, Mexico, pleaded guilty on March 12, 2021. According to court documents, she violated the criminal penalties of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) by engaging in transactions and dealings in property with six Mexican businesses that had been sanctioned by OFAC as specially designated narcotics traffickers in September 2015 and September 2017.

Court documents indicate that Oseguera Gonzalez was an owner of two Mexican companies designated by OFAC, J&P Advertising, S.A. de C.V., and JJGON S.P.R. de R.L. de C.V., and that she was an officer, director, or agent of four additional sanctioned businesses, Las Flores Cabanas, Mizu Sushi Lounge, Tequila Onze Black, and Operadora Los Famosos, S.A. de C.V., doing business as Kenzo Sushi. She remained an owner, officer, director or agent of those entities following their OFAC designations, and did not seek the required license from OFAC to engage in those financial transactions.

“This sentence shows that violating the Treasury Department’s sanctions of businesses and persons tied to foreign drug cartels will not go unpunished,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “The Kingpin Act is an important tool in the U.S. government’s unrelenting efforts to dismantle drug cartels, and we will not hesitate to prosecute those who support major narcotics traffickers by engaging in conduct that violates the act’s criminal prohibitions.”

“Today’s sentencing of a prominent individual who willfully violated the Kingpin Act to engage in criminal transactions that facilitated the CJNG organization shows our unwavering commitment to bring to justice those who disregard the law and threaten public safety,” said Special Agent in Charge Bill Bodner of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Los Angeles Field Division. “Those who engage in illicit finance activities to aid the drug cartels that fill our communities with powerful and addictive drugs have no business operating without accountability.”

The Los Angeles Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case, and the Justice Department particularly thanks the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Marshals Service for their support and contributions to the case.

Trial Attorneys Brett Reynolds, Kaitlin Sahni and Kate Naseef of the Criminal Division’s Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section prosecuted the case.

This case received significant support from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program. The OCDETF program supports investigations around the country to identify, disrupt, dismantle and prosecute high-level members of drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations and enterprises.

(MEXICO) JUST IN: Suspected criminals in have used drones to drop explosives on police, injuring two officers on Tuesday in Michoacan #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.22: In August, two rigged drones were found in the car of suspected CJNG members:

Mexico cartel used explosive drones to attack police: ‘Officials think the powerful Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) is behind Tuesday’s attack in the western state of Michoacán’ The drones are thought to be the latest weapons in a deadly war between the drugs cartel and the security forces and vigilantes opposed to them.

New weapon in a deadly fight

Not much detail has been released about Tuesday’s attack but local media said two drones had been used.

It is believed they were rigged in a similar way to the two drones that were found in the car boot of suspected cartel members. 

The drones seized last year had containers taped to them which had been filled with plastic explosives and ball bearings. Experts said they had been set up to be detonated remotely and could have inflicted deadly damage.

The officers injured on Tuesday had been deployed to clear roads leading to the city of Aguililla, in Michoacán, which had been blocked by the cartel to impede the access of the security forces. 

Michoacan State Security DepartmentMembers of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel want to control the region, which is where their leader was born

Over the past weeks, hundreds of residents have been fleeing the city in fear as the CJNG and a rival group calling itself United Cartels (Cárteles Unidos), fight for control of the city.

Earlier this month, eight mutilated bodies were found in the area after a particularly deadly fight between the two groups of powerful drug cartels

Aguililla is the birthplace of CJNG leader Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, also known as “El Mencho”. 

“El Mencho” is one of Mexico’s most wanted men and the US Drug Enforcement Administration is offering a $10m (£7.2m) reward for information leading to his capture. 

His cartel is one of the most powerful in the country and has been behind some of the deadliest attacks on Mexican security forces, such as a 2015 ambush in Jalisco which left 15 officers dead.

It has spread from his original power base in the state of Jalisco to have an almost nationwide presence. 

Security officials say it was also behind the brazen assassination attempt on Mexico City’s police chief, Omar García Harfuch, last June.

The cartel is believed to have further stepped up its attacks on the security forces in retaliation for the extradition to the United States of El Mencho’s son, Rubén Oseguera González, known as “Menchito” (Little Mencho), on drug trafficking charges and this could become Mexico’s bloodiest year on record
