Abstract: 

On December 9, 2019, Genaro Garcia Luna, former Secretary of Public Security under President Felipe Calderon from 2006 to 2012, was arrested in Dallas, Texas. His indictment, released the next day, revealed that he was facing “three counts of cocaine trafficking and one count of making false statements.”[1] Given that he was arrested in Texas, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) will seek to conduct the trial in the court of the Eastern District of New York.[2]
