The mayor of Mazatlán assures that the arrest of the narco from Morelos does not harm the image of Mazatlán and that, on the contrary, it benefits it
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres rejected that the arrest in Mazatlán of a leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) in the state of Morelos could harm the image of this tourist destination.
He assured that it will benefit Mazatlán, because the fact that crime is being fought from very high levels and that this alleged criminal has been vacationing in this port, means that it is more beautiful than ever.
“They can vacation wherever they want, it doesn’t affect us at all, what’s more, it promotes the city so that it is better known by other people.”
But can’t it be a nest of delinquents, mayor?
-No, not at all, there are no conditions for it.
Mayor Benítez Torres rejected that this criminal group had been operating in Mazatlan, but surely he was vacationing as there are many businessmen who come to vacation in this tourist destination.
He gave us an example that last week some businessmen from Monterrey, Nuevo León, came to receive the condominiums they acquired and came to furnish them, which generated more economic income because the furniture was bought in Mazatlán.
Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres rejected that the arrest of an alleged member of the CJNG damages the image of Mazatlán.
