Drug War and Mexico Politics: Former head of the Zetas is source for investigating three former governors

La Jornada: "The investigation by the Office of Special Investigations into Organized Crime (OFDI) against the former governors of Tamaulipas, Manuel Cavazos Lermas, Tomás Yarrington and Eugenio Hernández, is based mainly on statements made ​​by the former member of Los Zetas cartel, Miguel Soto Parra, who, in 2009, became a protected witness for the Mexican government and U.S. agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Officials from the Attorney General's Office (PGR) revealed that this investigation is in the exploratory phase and after two years, many of the statements of Soto Parra have not been confirmed, including those regarding trips made by the former governors, and some of their relatives, to meet with leaders of the Gulf Cartel."
