Mexican, United States carry out prisoner swap

Mexico and the US swapped 27 convicts to have them continue serving their sentences in their own countries, as a result of bilateral cooperation on the execution of prison sentences, said authorities.

Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office said in a communique that, on an unspecified date, four American convicts were handed over to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI, and 23 Mexican prisoners were sent back to their homeland with the aid of Mexico’s Public Safety Secretariat and Foreign Relations Secretariat.

He said the American convicts were received at El Paso International Airport in Texas to have them continued serving in US jails the sentences handed down by Mexican courts. The Americans prisoners had been tried in Mexico for crimes against public health kidnapping and homicide.
