Suspected Human Smuggler Arrested in Ecuador

ECUADOR / 31 OCT 2010 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

Ecuadorean officials arrested Miguel Dutan Meneses, a suspected member of the network of human smugglers that sent several Ecuadoreans through Mexico on their way to the United States, the Latin American Herald Tribune reported.  

A surviver from the massacre of 72 migrants in Mexico at the hands of the criminal organization the Zetas, identified Dutan Meneses, who he said arranged the trip that ended in tragedy in Tamaulipas state along the US border.
