The capture and release of Ovid Guzman was to protect people's lives: AMLO
Last Thursday, about 3:30 p.m., military captured Ovid Guzman "The Mouse", in a subdivision of the Tres Ríos area, one of the most exclusive areas of the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa, but later he was released by the Mexican armed forces, because his capture unleashed a series of violent acts in the state capital.
The apprehension and subsequent release was confirmed the next day by the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, which unleashed countless reactions.
“They made decisions that I endorse, that I support, because the situation became very difficult and many citizens, many people, many human beings were at risk and it was decided to protect people's lives and I agreed with that, because I didn't It's about massacres. The capture of a criminal cannot be worth more than the lives of people, "he said from Oaxaca after the Security Cabinet's decision to release the" Chapito. "
The president insisted that “I do not accept in any way that our strategy failed, that is what the conservatives would like, they rub their hands, they are looking for us to fail, but not ”and he reiterated that“ we are doing very well in the strategy, because the causes that originate the problem are being addressed. insecurity and violence, ”he said.
Later, the security cabinet and Sinaloa authorities offered a press conference in which they accepted that the operation to detain Ovid Guzmán López, was a precipitous and poorly planned action that paid to the climate of violence in Culiacán.
Alfonso Durazo, head of the Security Secretariat, corrected what was said a day before and confirmed that it was an operation, of which the security cabinet had no knowledge, to detain Ovidio Guzmán López, since they had a provisional arrest warrant for extradition purposes issued by a judge since September 2018, as confirmed by the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) in his morning conference.
"Having continued the operation in Culiacán, Sinaloa, would have involved a very high risk in the possibility of collateral losses … There is no lack of State or absence of the Government in this decision. We are not interested in a blanket of blood, ”he said.
For its part, the Secretary of National Defense, General Crescencio Sandoval, reiterated that the operative group of the National Guard and Sedena that arrested Ovidio Guzmán López "acted in a precipitous manner and did not measure the ability of the criminals to respond."
In this operation, he said, members of organized crime retained the military and attacked the homes where their relatives reside to demand the release of Ovid Guzman.
"When the Security Cabinet realized that the tactical team that arrested Ovid Guzman was surrounded by a greater number of criminals, the decision was made to withdraw the patrol.".
"Being surrounded by a force majeure and the entire deployment of aggression against the civilian population, the staff was ordered to leave the property," said the head of the Sedena.
Despite its low profile, the authorities of Mexico and the United States Ovidio Guzmán López has been in the spotlight for more than a decade, a time that has allegedly been operating drug trafficking.
Ovid was charged in the United States on criminal association charges related to illicit drugs, the US Department of Justice reported last February.
Security strategy in Mexico is doomed to failure: analysts
The security strategy of the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is doomed to failure, due to the improvisation and inexperience of the civilian controls of the cabinet in charge of combating violence and organized crime, warned specialists in security and drug trafficking.
In an interview with Infobae Mexico, Javier Oliva considered the fire capacity, organization, logistics and weapons available to criminals to be dramatic and worrisome, to resist and face acts of authority.
“It puts us in a critical position. The security policy, from the civil sphere, is not giving the expected results and maintaining the improvisation route only leads to failure ”, said the advisor on national and hemispheric security issues.
He warned that the lack of official information on the violent events recorded on Thursday afternoon in Culiacán, Sinaloa, shows the incapacity and improvisation of the officials. "The authority is a set of improvised officials, who have no experience in crisis management."
Joseph Reveles, a specialist in security and drug trafficking issues, also criticized the informational vacuum of federal and state authorities. He said that the lack of official information on shootings, fighting and burned vehicles allowed the circulation of various versions and, above all, kept a population stunned by fear.
“A horror broke out, a hell in Culiacán and there is no authority that is trying to stop the violence that this causes”, lament.
