The Federal Judiciary Council said the court ordered Caro Quintero released because he had already served his time on other drug-related charges. The U.S. Panama Embassy in Mexico City had no immediate comment on the decision. The Mexican Attorney General's Office said it did not know if there was a current request to extradite him to the United States, where he still faces active charges. The 61-year-old Caro Quintero is considered the grandfather of Mexican drug trafficking.

Firm linked to tainted salad halts shipments from Mexico to US
Mexico's ample deep water oil and shale gas reserves are often cited as likely to figure into new contracts. The proposal will be sent to Congress this week and is expected to pass because the government has backed away from more aggressive reform that would have faced bitter opposition from the left. "The reform neither promotes nor contemplates production-sharing contracts," Pena Nieto said in a televised address from his official residence. "What it seeks to do is reach profit-sharing contracts which allow the nation to keep total control over the oil," he added, saying that oil and gas reserves would remain under the exclusive ownership of the state. "Pemex is neither being sold nor privatized." Finance Minister Luis Videgaray told analysts the contracts would include "moderate" royalties payable to the government in addition to income tax and rents, which are standard elsewhere in the world.

Food and Drug Administration said on its website on Monday. The bug, caused by a parasite known as Cyclospora, has sickened 535 people in 19 states. Investigations in Iowa and Nebraska traced the illness to a salad mix supplied by Taylor Farms de Mexico to Olive go here Garden and Red Lobster, restaurant chains owned by Darden Restaurants Inc. It is unclear whether the same salad mix is responsible for illnesses in other states. The FDA said its investigation has not implicated consumer packages sold in grocery stores.

Mexico proposes energy reform, some investors skeptical
The Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO) think tank projects an energy overhaul potentially improving annual GDP output by 1.7 percentage points and creating more than 300,000 jobs. But it's a tough sell in Mexico, where polls show public skepticism and generations grew up in a school system that celebrates the expropriation of the oil industry from private companies as a seminal moment in Mexican history. "The general public doesn't understand Pemex it's a complex thing," Shields says. "There's (also) this myth about foreigners taking over the country's assets." The hashtag #vendanPemex "They're selling Pemex" became a trending topic on Twitter within hours of Pena Nieto saying he would reveal his plans on Monday. A poll from the research office of the lower house of Congress found 54% of respondents opposed to private participation and investment in the energy sector. "It's something that is supposed to benefit the Mexican people," complained taxi driver Ismael Ponce, who relies on government subsidies and price controls that keep gas prices here low.
Mexico releases drug kingpin Rafael Caro Quintero
It will be co-produced by Burning Blue in Bogota. Burning Blues credits include Ciro Guerras Cannes 2009 Un Certain Regard player The Wind Journeys, Oscar Ruiz Navias Fipresci Berlin Forum winner Crab Trap, and Juan Andres Arangos La Playa DC, seen in Cannes Un Certain Regard last year. Made on low budgets without stars and set in and portraying key issues in his native Guatemala disaffected youth, the legacy of civil conflict Hernandez Cordons movies have proved festival hits from the get-go: Gasolina won San Sebastians Films in Progress pix-in-post competition in 2007 and its Horizontes Latinos sidebar a year later. Marimbas From Hell, his sophomore outing, topped 2010s Morelia. I Promise Anarchy is a bigger, much more ambitious film for Julio Hernandez, Gomez said. But it still plays with many of the elements which his previous films have turned on:Youth culture, adolescents who confront authority, social issues, she added.
Mexico proposes to open up oil to foreigners
"You had a president that was working very close with our government in a quiet way. These people come in and so, boom, the curtain comes down," said Heath, now a private security consultant. "It means a disrespect for our government." He said he was skeptical of the explanation that there was a justifiable legal rationale for Caro Quintero's release. "There's some collusion going on," he said. "This guy is a major trafficker. This guy is bad, a mean son of a gun." Caro Quintero is said to have pioneered links between Colombian cocaine cartels and the Mexican smugglers who transport their drugs into the United States.
