The release of Roberto Nájera Gutiérrez, alias “La Gallina”, identified by police authorities as an operative of the Sinaloa Cartel in southeastern Mexico, was described Tuesday Jan. 31 as a very serious, delicate and disturbing case.
Gustavo Cisneros Buenfil, president of Coparmex in Mérida, and researcher Othón Baños Ramírez said they do not understand the decision of the federal judge.
“Here we must recognize that the executive branch fulfills its obligation to protect the state: it arrests a person linked to organized crime, but the judiciary decides otherwise,” said Cisneros Buenfil.

“I do not know what to think, because I do not know the criteria that led to the judge’s performance, but the least we can ask is to know what his arguments were to make this incomprehensible decision.”
“If that man is fully identified as one of the operators of one of the most powerful organized crime groups in the country, it is logical that a priority objective should be to keep him out of circulation,” he said.
Othón Baños stressed that the fact is clear that this situation causes discomfort, discontent and of course fear. “It’s like giving drug trafficking permission to operate in the state.”
