At least eight of the defendants held positions of greater responsibility, so they were sent to martial courts and acknowledged their guilt.
The authorities of the Navy of the United States ( US ) announced Monday the expulsion of some 24 troops to be involved in crimes of drug trafficking and human trafficking, as said most of the First Marine Division California, Kendra Motz.
The measure was taken after, in 2019, Border Patrol members stopped a vehicle with three undocumented Mexicans, plus a driver and another passenger, both identified as marines.
From that event, an investigation began, in which it was revealed that the migrants allegedly paid each $8,000 to be transferred to Los Angeles. In addition, more uniformed would be involved.
One of the marines is being held at the naval base of Camp Pendleton, San Diego, where he is serving a sentence of 18 months before being dismissed and probably faces a military court.
“All cases were handled at the appropriate level and with respect to the rule of law,” said Motz, a Navy spokesman.
Likewise, at least eight of the defendants held positions of greater responsibility, so they were sent to martial courts and acknowledged their guilt.
“We will continue to enforce the standards of honour, courage and commitment that serve as the great hallmarks of our body,” Motz added, after noting that the 24 officials were expelled from the force.
