A federal judge agreed to extend the arraigo imposed on José Ángel Casarrubias Salgado, “El Mochomo”, leader of the United warriors implicated in the Iguala case, until next September 18.
Judicial sources confirmed that the judge granted the petition presented by the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) to continue gathering evidence against him for the crimes of organized crime.
“El Mochomo” is singled out for allegedly ordering the killing of the 43 normalistas from AyotzinapaHowever, sources close to the case explained that the investigation that the FGR is ongoing is not related to these events.
Casarrubias Salgado was arrested on June 29 in the State of Mexico and was transferred to the Almoloya federal prison for an investigation that the FGR began in 2014.
When finding no evidence against him, a federal judge ordered his release, but on July 1, the day he was released from prison, the FGR executed an arrest warrant to investigate him for organized crime, a measure that expired today.
Since then, he has stayed at the Federal Research Center of the FGR in the Doctores neighborhood where he will stay until September 18.
