‘Cowering’ Mexican drug lord “caught by dog” claims recent arrest resulted in “prison torture”


A Mexican drug lord claimed that after being apprehended and imprisoned, he was subjected to “torture and life-threatening injuries” as well as other humiliating and isolating treatment.

Rafael Caro Quintero, the former head of the Guadalajara cartel and its founder, claimed that acts of torture were committed against him while he was being held in custody in claims made by a person going by the name José Mora León.

Quintero, 69, claims that inmates at the Altiplano prison subjected him to a series of “physical and psychological” torments and treated him poorly.

With a long list of alleged crimes against Quintero, the lawsuit was submitted to Mexico’s Eighth District Court of Federal Amparo and Trial.

Quintero, 69, was captured earlier last month in an arrest that left 14 people dead

Claims of “incommunicado detention, segregation, isolation, captivity with physical and psychological torment, mistreatment, abuse of authority, torture, and life-threatening injuries” were listed on the list that was submitted.

The horrifying list of accusations comes after the former cartel boss of Guadalajara was unable to thwart an extradition attempt because of the ongoing trial.

It appears Quintero won’t be extradited to the US, where he is wanted for the murder of Enrique Kiki Camarena, until the list of allegations is cleared up.
