“Completely false”; Cienfuegos lawyer denies negotiation with the US Attorney’s Office

Rafael Heredia, attorney for the general Salvador Cienfuegos, assures that contrary to the information circulating in the media, there are no negotiations between the former Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) and the Prosecutor’s Office that accuses him of drug trafficking and money laundering in a United States court.

Through a letter, the Mexican lawyer assured that “it is the news totally false regarding the attorney Edward Sapone being in negotiations with the United States Attorney’s Office so that his client, Mr. Salvador Cienfuegos pleads guilty ”.

He assures that there is no plan “not even a thought” that Salvador Cienfuegos pleads guiltyas he firmly maintains the defense of his innocence.

In the letter, he states that Sapone is the only defender to this day and has never had conversations with the US prosecutor’s office regarding his client’s guilty plea, nor has he signed any document containing this issue.

The only truth is that General Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda has never pleaded, nor will he plead guilty in the matter for which he is accused in the United States.
