In the capital of Mexico, behind the walls of the prisons an internal struggle between criminal groups is hidden. A battlefield between the Sinaloa Cartel and The Union Tepito.
There, before the silence of a subdued authority, these criminal organizations intend to take control of the illicit businesses that exist in the jails of Mexico City.
According to the investigation folders of the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City (FGJ CDMX), Until a while ago the Tepito Union had the power over life and death in that hell; However, the incursion of the Sinaloan group took away businesses such as the rental of cells and spaces, the sale of drugs and even took over businesses of the administration of conjugal visits to La Unión Tepito.
This power battle left two dead this week in the South and Santa Martha prisons.
The authorities locate Enrique Torres Acosta, the “Kike” y/o “24th” as the protagonist of this war.
“Kike”, hijo de Manuel Torres Félix the “Wavy ”, was identified as the right arm of Ismael Zambada Sicairos, the “Mayito Flaco “, and head of one of the main security cells that had access to Ismael Zambada, the “Mayo”, leader of Sinaloa Cartel.
This narco is imprisoned in the East prison, despite having a extradition order to the United States, which requires it by organized crime and drug trafficking.
This Monday, a narcomanta and human remains were abandoned in the facilities of the Oriente prison, in CDMX.
In the prison of the Eastern Preventive Men’s Prison – located in the troubled Mexico City – the dominance of criminal groups crossed the limits. Last Monday, the head of the capital government, Claudia Sheinbaum announced the discovery of human remains and a narcomanta. In it were printed the threats of those who seek changes in prison.
“Your Commander Chávez continue to give blowjobs with these whores from Meño, “Quique” and “Poli”, you are supposed to put order, not to work for these assholes”, read a fragment of the threat.
In accordance with Antonio Nieto, journalist and author of the book The Chilango Cartel: Origin, Power and Viciousness of the Tepito Union (Grijalbo: 2020), the threats would be related to La Unión Tepito, which seeks that Enrique Torres Acosta, the “Kike” and Héctor Manuel Avendaño Ojeda, the “Meño”, – one of the main operators of the “Mayo” – are changed from penal.
Nieto warns that the objectives of the capital criminal group are to control the prison and reach another character, the “Duke”, an ally of Rafael Caro Quintero placeholder image, in turn close to Sinaloa Cartel.
The criminal groups the Unión Tepito and the Sinaloa Cartel have become strong in the Mexican capital.
Since last year there have been changes of lights in Mexico City that indicated the gradual advance of different cells of the Sinaloa Cartel throughout various municipalities.
