Former Head of Mexico's Anti-Organized Crime Unit Arrested

The fight against corruption in government by Mexican President Felipe Calderon has resulted in the arrest of the highest profile figure to date, former head of Mexico’s anti-organized crime unit Noe Ramirez Mandujano. The arrest, coupled with that of at least 7 other former high ranking officials, demonstrates the success of President Calderon’s stated commitment to reducing the influence of drug cartels, which previously had wielded considerable clout in the nation. Mandujano is alleged to have received over $450,000 from organized crime in exchange for information.
