Mexico’s former safety chief goes on trial in US drug case | Rush Hour

Shielded by anonymity and extra security, jurors got their first look Monday at a rare U.S. trial of a former cabinet-level Mexican official charged with taking bribes to aid drug traffickers he was supposed to be neutralizing.

His case folds in Mexico’s politics, its vast and violent drug trade, uncomfortable connections between the two and delicate U.S.-Mexico relations about fighting drugs and corruption. #MexicanCartels #Genaro García Luna Full story: https://www.newsnationnow.com/crime/mexicos-former-safety-chief-goes-on-trial-in-us-drug-case/
