The financial structure of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG), one of the most powerful in Mexico, has just suffered “a significant blow.”

This is how the Mexican National Defense Secretariat defined the arrest on Monday of Rosalinda González Valencia, wife of the leader of the CJNG, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, alias El Mencho.

Various crimes are attributed to her, such as her alleged relationship with “the illicit financial operation of an organized crime group,” according to a statement from the authorities.

Known as La Jefa, she was detained in Zapopan, in the state of Jalisco considered a stronghold of the CJNG.
