Colorado Attorney General John Suthers will travel to Mexico City to meet with Mexican Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam on Tuesday, March 19th. Suthers and western state Attorneys General representing California, Idaho, Nevada and New Mexico will meet with Murillo Karam to discuss drug trafficking, human trafficking and judicial reform in Mexico.
The western state Attorneys General are part of an alliance partnership that has provided training to Mexican investigators and prosecutors to assist in the country’s change to a more public adversarial trial system.
“Colorado has a close historical and current connection to Mexico,” said Suthers. “On critical issues of drug and human trafficking, we benefit by working together and sharing best practices.”
Murillo Karam was appointed Attorney General in December 2012 by the recently-elected Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. Murillo Karam is a former governor of Hidalgo and has served in various capacities in the Mexican Legislature.
