A federal judge admitted to processing an amparo of Jose Juan Esparragoza Jimenez, The Cora, son of the kingpin Juan Jose Esparragoza Moreno, The blue, who seeks that the authorities return one million 15 thousand 800 pesos and 131 thousand 344 dollars, equivalent to 2 million 700 thousand pesos.
In 2014, it was said that The blue, one of the main leaders of the Sinaloa cartel he had died of a heart attack. However, the then Attorney General’s Office (PGR) could not verify the event.
Esparragoza Jiménez was arrested that year and before a federal judge agreed to be the son of The blue, adding that his father had just died.
Now, Juan Mateo Brieba de Castro, Sixth District Judge of Amparo in Criminal Matters, admitted to processing the demand for guarantees of The Cora and it granted a definitive suspension that prevents the federal government authorities from alienating, auctioning, extinguishing or awarding the insured cash in favor of third parties or that cause favor to the public utility, or any act that affects it is carried out.
In his claim for protection, José Juan Esparragoza claimed that on November 7 the authority refused to return the cash that was assured to him at the time.
Brieba de Castro denied at this time ordering the authorities to make material and legal delivery of the money, because this would imply giving restitutionary effects to the precautionary measure, which is typical of the resolution that in his case is issued in the amparo trial.
The then PGR admitted The Cora in the maximum security prison of the Altiplano, in the State of Mexico, because there are indications that he was part of the Sinaloa cartel.
Experts from the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) carried out expert examinations in order to find out the family ties that he would have with Juan José Esparragoza Moreno.
The PGR reported at the time that “it was not possible to make a positive comparison, since there is no genetic information that allows establishing the kinship relationship”, since the capo was never arrested.
The federal agency said that there is no information that allows scientific certainty of the kinship of this person with the drug lord.
“Esparragoza Jiménez allegedly belongs to a criminal group that operates in Sinaloa and the alleged activities it had were to coordinate the production and transfer of glass, cocaine and marijuana to the United States; he kept a low profile, “said the PGR.
José Juan Esparragoza refused to be responsible for the crimes committed by the PGR. The foregoing was stated when rendering his preparatory statement to the Third District Judge of Federal Criminal Proceedings in Toluca, State of Mexico.
