Mexico City – The Attorney General’s Office (FGR) was ordered by a Collegiate District Court to unfreeze eight bank accounts of Sandra Ávila Beltrán , known as “The Queen of the Pacific”.

Ávila’s accounts are in Santander, BBVA, HSBC and Banco Mercantil del Norte banks. It is unknown how much the amount found in these accounts is.

The Court ruled that no links between Ávila Beltrán and drug trafficker Ismael “Mayo” Zambada are proven.

It shall be the responsibility of the Public Ministry of the Federation to notify the National Banking and Securities Commission of the resolution of the Collegiate District Court, by means of offices that will be delivered to the decentralized body of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP). 

Born in 1960 in the Mexican state of Baja California, Ávila Beltrán is the niece of the drug trafficker Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, aka El Padrino, and considers herself the inspiration for the main character of the hit novel “La Reina del Sur“, by the Spanish writer Arturo Pérez -Reverte.

Ávila Beltrán lived and operated in the northern part of Mexico, in the states of Jalisco and Sonora, until police found more than nine tons of cocaine in a ship in the Pacific port of Manzanillo, Colima.

For this reason, she was arrested in 2007, accused by the PGR of introducing several tons of cocaine to the country along with her sentimental partner, the Colombian Juan Diego Espinosa Ramírez, aka “El Tigre”.

At the end of 2010, a Mexican judge acquitted her of the crimes of organized crime and money laundering, but withheld her to be extradited to the United States, which happened in August 2012.

Ávila Beltrán was handed over to the US authorities in compliance with the extradition agreement and, in July 2013, the Federal Court for the Southern District of Florida (USA), handed down a sentence condemning her to a 70-month prison.

During her defense, at all times she claimed that she was never involved in drug trafficking, she only supported her boyfriend. In fact, Ávila Beltrán pleaded guilty to providing “advice” and helping her sentimental partner to flee.

The Queen of the Pacific was, however, released when she was imprisoned as part of the time she was imprisoned in Mexico.

After this she was repatriated to Mexico in August 2013 and again imprisoned to face the Justice for money laundering charges, a process that was suspended for having been extradited to the neighbouring country.

On September 5, 2014, she was sentenced to five years in prison and a thousand days of fine for being criminally responsible in the commission of the crime of illegal operations and was held in the Federal Center for Social Readaptation, in the state of Nayarit, which he left on February 8, 2015.
