Spain Extradites Porkys Member to Mexico

In their sentencing, the Spanish magistrates also ignored the defense's accusation that Cruz Alonso could be poorly treated in a Mexican jail

Spain will extradite a young man charged with sexual assault to Mexico, a case that has caused uproar in Mexico.

The Cabinet Council of the Spanish government approved Diego Gabriel Cruz Alonso’s extradition on Friday. He is 21 years old and holds both Mexican and Spanish citizenship.

He was part of a group called “Los Porkys” which supposedly abused a 17-year-old old girl who they forced into their car as she left a club in the wealthy Boca del Río neighborhood in Veracruz in January of 2015.

After local authorities failed to respond in a timely manner, the victim’s father sought out the help of local press which obligated justice officials to investigate.

Cruz Alonso has remained in jail since his detention in June in Madrid.

At the beginning of December the judges in the National Audience dismissed the defense’s argument, among others, that as he was a Spanish citizen his extradition would be an unjust procedure.

In their sentencing, the Spanish magistrates also ignored the defense’s accusation that Cruz Alonso could be poorly treated in a Mexican jail.
