Gregorio "Greg" Sánchez absolved of narcotrafficking, charged with laundering money

Gregorio "Greg" Sánchez, the PRD mayor of Cancún who was dramatically arrested ahead of the Quintana Roo gubernatorial election last year for drug trafficking, was absolved of said charged. Yet as he left prison, he was re-arrested on money laundering charges.

Whatever Sánchez's guilt - or not - I wish we didn't have to live through these charades, where a person is arrested, then released as charges are dropped or exonerated, while then being re-arrested as s/he literally walks out the prison door. To call it undignified is an understatement.


  1. It also raises the specter of politically motivated "justice", Sanchez' arrest being a rather convenient way of throwing his probably election as governor (whether good or bad, he was the likely people's choice) out the window and imposing a governor more acceptable to the elites.

  2. Not sure what you are basing that on, Greg was like 20 points down in the polls at the time of his arrest unless I remember incorrectly.
