A Mexican judge jailed Francisco Javier Gómez Meza, the warden at the Puente Grande, Jalisco prison, where he will await trial for his connections to the Beltrán Leyva Organization, the Mexican daily El Universal reported. The indictment says that Gómez protected the cartel from his old posts at the Attorney General’s Office and one of the government’s top crime offices, the Federal Public Security (SSPF). The Beltrán Leyva Organization has infiltrated many parts of the police and judicial sectors. Several cases, including the infiltration of a top investigative unit SIEDO, are pending in court.
