TIJUANA BC (Frontera, 6/7/11) – Yesterday, the Attorney General's Office (PGR) extended the term to define the legal status of Jorge Hank Rhon and other 10 detainees from 48 to 96 hours, because it assumes that they are likely responsible for the offense of organized crime. Announced in a statement, the unit indicated that the Commission of this offense with the amount of weapons-related items (88); as such, the Federal Act against organized crime establishes such when this offense is repeatedly committed by three or more persons. "The extending of the term from 48 hours will prevent the suspects from evading the actions of Justice, while it investigates their participation. This could be related to the number of persons arrested in flagrant violation of the law with the type of weapons that they had," explained the PGR. He added that the accused were in blatant illegal possession of firearms, of which they could not prove legal possession. Thus began a preliminary investigation on violations of the Federal firearms and explosives arms laws. In the event that the PGR charges them with organized crime, Hank Rhon and his bodyguards will have to fight two serious legal charges, as the collection of weapons is serious because half of them were calibers used exclusively by the armed forces. Regarding arms trafficking, organized crime is punishable with up to 16-years in prison plus fines for leaders or supervisors of criminal groups; subordinates are punished with up to 8-years of imprisonment plus fines. The extension to 96 hours is the deadline for determining the legal status of the entrepreneur and his bodyguards. It implies that by Thursday at 1:30 pm, their defendants must be charged and arraigned before a judge or released due to lack of evidence. Hank Rhon was detained early Saturday by an army command, but first placed at the disposal of the Federal Public Ministry until Sunday at 1:30 pm.
