Authorities have confirmed that Gulf Cartel regional leader in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, José Sánchez García, alias Gordo Cachetes, (Fat Cheeks) was arrested by Mexico’s federal police.

He was detained Thursday in the city of Matamoros, according to National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido.

Sánchez García is accused of playing a role in kidnappings,including the kidnapping and killing of ranchers,  murders, extortion, cattle theft and drug trafficking. He is also connected to the assassination of Homero Villarreal González, Director of Transit and Public Safety of the municipality of Villa Aldama, who was killed in August.

Sánchez García is also suspected of the abduction of two federal agents.

“It is noteworthy that in 2010… Sánchez García began in the criminal structure that rapidly escalated the level of aggressiveness with which he acted,” Alejandro Rubido said at a press conference. “Under his leadership came to be at least seven groups of gunmen, characterized by high levels of violence and who acted mainly in the municipalities of Aldama, Soto la Marina and Abasolo — all in Tamaulipas.”

 

Sánchez García had been a priority target for federal authorities since January this year.

A number of criminals linked to the Christy Kinahan crime syndicate are expected to come home from Spain for tomorrow’s funeral of mob enforcer (Paul Kavanagh).

The 27-year-old brother of Gerard ‘Hatchet’ Kavanagh was brutally murdered in Drumcondra less than a fortnight ago.

The mob members’ appearance at the church service is despite the fact that Kavanagh was most likely murdered by his own gang for stealing drugs cash from them.

The fact that “key individuals” in the organisation are expected to attend the funeral of the dad-of-two shows just how complicated gangland relationships within organised crime networks can be.

“The Kinahan syndicate is not just a tightly-knit crew of men who all sing from the same hymn sheet. There are fellas involved in it who have different rivalries, different egos and different view points,” a source explained.

“That is why it should be no surprise to see senior henchmen at the funeral.”

What can’t be doubted is that the murder of Paul Kavanagh again showed the murderous capabilities of the Kinahan gang.

It came just weeks after reports began emerging from Spain that a deadly feud which the syndicate are involved in in the Costa-Del-Sol is so serious that wives and girlfriends of some senior gang members have been told to move back to Dublin amid fears the women will be targeted.

It emerged that the Kinahan gang are involved in a bitter feud with a drugs trafficking mob from Liverpool over a missing drugs shipment which murdered gangster Gerard ‘Hatchet’ Kavanagh (44) was blamed for stealing.

Both ‘Hatchet’ and Paul had enforcer roles in the mob but both are now dead.

However, it is also believed that the Kinahan crew have been involved in a potentially even more dangerous dispute with an eastern European mob.

Christy Kinahan (58) is the wealthiest criminal in the
history of Irish gangland crime.

WAS THIS FORMER PAKISTANI SUPER MODEL A MONEY MULE FOR INTERNATIONAL MONEY LAUNDERERS

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/04/06/how-pakistans-top-supermodel-ended-up-in-jail/

 

Ayyan Ali was used to being watched. As Pakistan’s top supermodel, she was one of the country’s most photographed figures. Her pale skin and startling gray eyes had launched countless marketing campaigns. Her every action was fodder for gossip magazines.

Perhaps that is why she arrived at Islamabad’s international airport after midnight on March 14: to avoid the crowds. But as Ali settled into the VIP departure lounge, she was being monitored nonetheless. This time, however, it wasn’t her adoring fans ogling her. It was the police.

Acting on a tip, Pakistani authorities inspected Ali’s luggage and allegedly found $506,800 stuffed inside a small suitcase, according to Pakistani media. They arrested the model and aspiring actress for money laundering.

Ali’s arrest has upended more than Pakistan’s fashion industry. According to Pakistani media, she has also implicated politicians and fellow models from inside jail. Her arrest comes amid wider inquiries into Pakistani politicians and money laundering.

Often known simply as Ayyan, Ali has been the face of Pakistan’s booming fashion industry since the age of 16. So famous is she that there were calls for her to become the first Pakistani to represent the country at the Miss Universe Pageant. (She did not.)

Over the past five years, her fame has spread far beyond the catwalk. She has seductively posed with dripping ice cream bars, driven a blood orange Lamborghini in a cellphone commercial, and served as Calvin Klein’s brand ambassador in Pakistan. On social media, she posted pictures of herself on her own private jet with the caption: #HATERSACTINGFUNNY‬.

In recent months, Ali had sought to reinvent herself as something of a bad girl. She embarked on a singing career, releasing several singles including a song called “Earthquake,” for which she posed with a cigarette perched between her lips.

Bad girl or not, Ali’s March 14 arrest nonetheless stunned Pakistan. Authorities accused the nation’s top supermodel of attempting to smuggle the small fortune onto a late night flight to the United Arab Emirates. Khurram Latif Khosa, one of Ali’s lawyers, told the Guardian that his client was never going to take the cash out of the country. Instead, Khosa says Ali was going to hand off the money – proceeds from a legal property sale, he claimed — to her brother before boarding her flight.

According to Pakistani media, however, Ali later admitted to officials that she had received the money from the brother of a prominent national politician. One paper described a ring of politicians using models as mules for an alleged international money laundering outfit.

Ali’s arrest comes amid wider worries over the nexus between crime and politics in Pakistan. Last month, Pakistani officials raided the Karachi offices of political party Muttahida Qaumi Movement, or MQM, arresting 20. And on April 1, London police arrested another member of MQM on suspicions of money laundering. Mohammed Anwar was the sixth man to be arrested in the British investigation, which does not appear to be connected to Ali’s arrest.

Pakistan is abuzz with rumors and theories as to how a fashion darling became an alleged felon facing up to 14 years in prison. Some paint Ali as a patsy.

“My first reaction was there goes one more girl,” fashion matriarch Maheen Khan told the Guardian. “A lot of these girls come from very protected families and can be very naive. I think of her as a victim.”

Much of the media coverage has centered on the conditions Ali faces in Pakistan’s notorious Adiala Jail. The country’s number one model is now one of 4,500 inmates, including convicted murderers and terrorists. Pakistani newspapers have reported that Ali is living in relative luxury inside a a private room with TV, refrigerator and cellphone, but the BBC reported that’s not the case.

Ali shares a prison block with 10 other women and spends most of her time lying down or talking to her fellow inmates, the BBC reported. So far, she has been denied bail.

“All agencies have interrogated her, and she is no more required for any purpose whatsoever,” another one of her lawyers, Sardar Ishaq, angrily told the Guardian. “She is living with ordinary criminals — ladies involved in murder cases. It will ruin her life.”

If there is an upside to her incarceration it is that Ali is still allowed to wear the latest fashions in jail. At least for now. Only convicts wear stripes.
