Mexico.- Subsequently, AMLO released the name of the colonel who is responsible for the operation carried out in Culiacán, Sinaloa for the arrest of drug trafficker Ovidio Guzmán.
This caused distress for internet users, politicians and relatives of the person as this puts the integrity of Colonel Juan José Verde Montes at risk.
“As a soldier’s sister, who serves Mexico with surrender, she considered it deplorable that the name of the Colonel responsible for the operation of Culiacán has been given. It’s risky for him and his family,” Senator Xóchitl Gálvez Ruiz wrote.
As a soldier’s sister, who serves Mexico with surrender, I consider it deplorable that the name of the Colonel responsible for the operation of Culiacán has been given. It’s risky for him and his family.
This violates the confidence of the elements that combat crime.

Journalist Nayeli Roldán was not left behind by mentioning, on Twitter, that she did not want to “imagine” what the Colonel must be going through who, in addition to being exposed in the “badly planned” operation is at “risk” to make his name known, “and to point out it as one responsible for stopping the Chapo’s son.”
I do not even want to imagine what must be going on the colonel who, in addition to being exposed in this ill-planned operation, now his superior highest puts him at risk – and his entire family – by saying his name and pointing him out as solely responsible for stopping the son of The Chapo.
