During his visit to North Carolina, Alejandro Celorio, legal consultant for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, talks to us about the illegal arms trade and the responsibility of US companies that sell half a million weapons a year that are trafficked to Mexico.

“To talk about the situation of armed violence in Mexico is to talk about illicit arms trafficking,” commented Alejandro Celorio.

On August 4, 2021, the Government of Mexico filed a civil lawsuit against US companies that manufacture and distribute weapons for their negligent business practices that favor arms trafficking to Mexico.

What has been the response of arms companies in the United States?

The defendant companies themselves, which represent 68% of all weapons seized in Mexico, respond that Mexico does not have the legal capacity to sue and that they enjoy immunities asking the judge to stop the process.

On January 31, Mexico presents as part of its response 7 briefs from friends of the court, documents that support the initial argument, 14 state attorneys, 26 District Attorneys in the United States headed by the District Attorney of San Francisco in support of the Mexico’s demand.

Alejandro Celorio, Legal Consultant of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, expressed his optimism for this April 12, the date that the judge scheduled a hearing to hear the oral arguments of Mexico.
