Supreme Court confirmed extradition to the United States of Mexican narco prisoner in Uruguay


Feb. 13, 2020

The Supreme Court of Justice confirmed the extradition to the United States of Gerardo Gonzalez Valencia, a Mexican drug lord imprisoned in Uruguay since 2016, linked to the “Los Cuinis” cartel, also known as “Jalisco Nueva Generacion”.
The extradition had been confirmed by an Appeals Court in 2018, but Gonzalez Valencias defense took the case to the Supreme Court of Justice through an appeal.
The Court now grants definitively to the United States, although under certain conditions, as stated in the resolution reached by Underlined:
1. Delivery is deferred until the requested party obtains his provisional release or definitive release in the case followed in Uruguay.
2. The granted extradition is conditioned on the requesting State authorities to ensure that the requested one is not tried or convicted for crimes other than those referred to in the extradition request, except for the cases set forth in paragraphs 1 and 2 of art. . 13 of the Treaty (Extradition in force).
3. The granted extradition is conditional on the requesting authorities granting guarantees considered sufficient by the national authorities involved in this process, and that in the event that Gerardo Gonzalez Valencia is convicted in the criminal proceeding that is intended to be initiated in the requesting country, no death penalty or life imprisonment will be imposed.
In 2016, the Organized Crime Judge Adriana de los Santos prosecuted Gonzalez Valencia with imprisonment for money laundering and four other persons for assistance in this crime.
Due to the danger of the criminal and international links with drug trafficking, Gonzalez Valencia was held in the Republican Guard units.
He had lived in Uruguay since 2011. He had millionaire properties and businesses in Punta del Este and Montevideo.
He is the brother of the narco Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, head of one of the most powerful cocaine trafficking organizations in Mexico, with ramifications in the United States, Europe and Asia.
