Quintana Roo continues to be the focus of attention at international level and unfortunately not only because of the economic spillover, tourism and destinations, but also because of the terrible events that occurred within the past few days at Hotel Xcaret and now with the execution of the manager of Mamitas Beach Club in Playa del Carmen. Therefore, authorities from United States and Canada have decided to come to Quintana Roo to reinforce security and intelligence work.
The state governor, Carlos Joaquín González, announced that, within 2 weeks, they will join the DEA, FBI and Canadian Mounted Police, “to work more on intelligence, given the latest events caused by criminal groups that do not operate in the entity. We are going to have the FBI, the DEA and the Canadian Mounted Police,” he said.
Quintana Roo also attracts criminals
He stressed that Quintana Roo, in addition to attracting tourists, also attracts criminals and indicated that many of the cases they have had are related to drugs and other reasons, which damages the prestige of places where they are committed, referring to the case in the Hotel Xcaret and those that have been registered in previous months.
“Fortunately, almost all those involved have already been arrested, in an incident between two Canadian criminal gangs and in which there is talk of betrayal,” he said. Let us remember that in the latest report from the State Attorney General’s Office, they announced the arrest of Nhu Thuy Truong, originally from Canada, and Christian Ramírez Oropeza, originally from Mexico City.
He recognized that all high impact events are very striking, because they were recorded in tourist complexes, beach areas and areas very popular with tourists; “perhaps if they had occurred in other places they would not have had the same impact, that forces us to give explanations. Fortunately we have detainees and thanks to this we confirm that impunity in the state is over,” he emphasized.
Lastly, it should be borne in mind that investigation on the Xcaret case will continue, since the assassin who activated his firearm against the Canadians is still a fugitive from justice and it is speculated that there are still more people who participated in this planning. The last thing we know is that the murderer was identified as one “Óscar” from Iztapalapa and is already being sought by the different Prosecutors of the Mexican Republic.
