The Myanmar Times - - World -

A vet­eran Mex­i­can drug lord wanted by the United States for the 1985 mur­der of a US un­der­cover agent has de­nied killing the man and in­sisted that he has left the crime world. Rafael Caro Quin­tero, co­founder of the now-de­funct Guadala­jara car­tel, said on July 24 that he has not re­sumed drug traf­fick­ing since his 2013 re­lease from pri­son. Mr Caro Quin­tero, 63, was freed on a le­gal tech­ni­cal­ity af­ter serv­ing 28 years of a 40-year sen­tence for the tor­ture and mur­der of the US Drug En­force­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tion agent, En­rique “Kiki” Ca­marena, whose Mex­i­can pi­lot, Al­fredo Zavala, was also killed.
