What does the US accuse Mexican drug trafficker ‘Chuy’ González of?

Chuy González was included in May 2021 by the United States Department of the Treasury on its list of high-profile international drug traffickers.

As a result of that designation, all of their assets under US jurisdiction were frozen and they were prohibited financial transactions with United States entities.

The United States Attorneys’ Offices for the District of Colorado and the Southern District of California have already charged González Peñuelas with multiple drug trafficking offenses in 2018 and 2017, respectively.

The United States offers the aforementioned reward through the State Department’s Narcotics Rewards Program (NRP), which according to its data has helped bring more than 90 transnational criminals to justice since its launch in 1986.

The US also has its sights on the Mexican kingpin ‘El Panu’

For the United States, ‘El Nini’ is not the main person in charge of the armed arms of Los Chapitosbut rather ‘El Panu’, would be in charge of supervising the regional commanders of said faction of the Sinaloa Cartel, They normally carry out activities related to protecting operations related to fentanyl trafficking, as well as confrontations with other cartels.

‘El Panu’ would be a primary target for the United States as he is one of the main people responsible for fentanyl trafficking only below the leaders of Los Chapitos, that is, the children of Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán.

The information in the files indicates that the United States is aware that both ‘El Nini’ and ‘El Panu’ have a fentanyl trafficking network with the permission of Los Chapitos and is led by the latter.
