On Friday, the Penal Chamber of the Spanish National Court ruled to extradite Diego Alonso Cruz, one of the so-called “Porkys” from Veracruz, accused earlier last year of rape.

The judges rejected the defendant’s case, made on October 28, and the Third Chamber of the Criminal Chamber accepted Mexico’s request for his extradition.

The 21-year-old was arrested on June 10 when he left a university residence under an international arrest warrant issued by Mexican authorities for alleged sexual assault of a minor in January 2015, which occurred in the company of three other friends.

The judges dismissed the defendant’s argument, which claimed that the father of the alleged victim in Mexico forced him and his friends to record a video in which they apologized under threat and extortion of four million pesos ($193,890).

In addition, they rejected the defense argument that Diego Alonso Cruz is a Spanish national and thus not able to be extradited, since neither Spanish legislation nor the Bilateral Extradition Treaty with Mexico impedes the extradition.

Now the case moves to the Council of Ministers to await final approval.
