In another story sure to bring confidence to Mexican citizens, the Acting federal police commissioner- he succeeded the last one, who was shot- quit under mysterious circumstances. On a saturday? Via a press release on a website? What the hell, Mexican Federal Police?
Acting federal police Commissioner Gerardo Garay said he was stepping aside "to place myself at the orders of legal judicial authorities to clear up any accusation against me."(MIAMI HERALD AP)
Garay did not say what accusations he was referring to, nor were federal officials available Saturday to comment on the resignation. But the newspaper Reform reported Saturday that prosecutors are looking into whether the federal police assigned to the Mexico City airport had aided drug traffickers.
A top operator of the Sinaloa drug cartel was arrested in Mexico City on Oct. 20 following a gunbattle with police, and prosecutors say the man was in charge of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine through the capital's international airport.
