The Case of Ramon Matta Ballesteros

I read an article in latribuna.hn a few days ago about Ramon Matta Ballesteros.  I have read about him over time and know that he is in the US in a prison for life for the murder of a DEA agent in Mexico.

Hondurans complain that he was extradited in violation of the Honduran constitution and that he was going to pay the entire external debt that Honduras owed. It is true that he offered to pay our external debt in Honduras,  but it is also true that he murdered a DEA agent and a Federal police officer of Mexico.  He had to pay the price for that crime and he is in jail for that crime.  what is also clear is he should not have been in Honduras in the first place.  He had been detained in Colombia and bought his way out of prison with $2 million and returned to Honduras where he should have been immediately arrested.  There are also extradition agreements with the US and Honduras whereas the US extradites people wanted for murder in Honduras and Hondurans have the obligation to extradite people wanted for murder in the US.

I don't want to spend my time on him, because I have heard way too many Hondurans boo hoo about the son he left behind for 23 years and that the son lost out on his father.  My concern is for the agent he killed and his family.  You might wander who is the DEA agent that he murdered? Well let's talk about him

His name was Enrique Camarena, he was 38 years old when he was murdered by Juan Ramon Matta Ballesteros.

Enrique Camarena was a decorated DEA agent and a marine.  He had a wife by the name of Mika and three sons.  This is who Kiki Camarena was http://www.camarenafoundation.org/news.htm and this is the legacy he left.  His wife and children were without a husband and a father, but not one word from Matta's son about the family of the man his father tortured and killed.

Here is information on the case itself

and the information about the tape of his actual torture and murder were made public

The person's rights that we should be concerned about are those of the man he killed brutally and that of his children who grew up without their father.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this matter to be actually something which I think I
would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for
me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
