Former Mexican Senator Diego Fernandez de Cevallos Ramos Missing in Pedro Escobedo, Mexico … Kidnapping?


69 year old Diego Fernandez de Cevallos Ramos, a former Mexican Senator is missing in Mexico since Saturday, May 15, 2010. According to reports, Fernandez de Cevallos disappeared on Saturday and his whereabouts are presently unknown. He was last seen on the ranch of his home in Pedro Escobedo, in central Mexico’s state of Queretaro.


A former Mexican senator was reported missing on Saturday, Mexico’s attorney general’s office said.

The case has rocked Mexico, with President Felipe Calderon saying he is closely monitoring the investigation into the disappearance of the former official, Diego Fernandez de Cevallos Ramos.

The attorney general of the state where Fernandez de Cevallos was reported missing said that authorities have no clues as to his whereabouts.

Fernandez de Cevallos was last seen on the ranch of his home in Pedro Escobedo, in central Mexico’s state of Queretaro, the country’s official Notimex news agency reported.

Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, a former presidential candidate is believed to have been kidnapped. Fernandez’s vehicle was found abandoned with blood stains inside causing the federal Attorney General’s Office in a statement to say,  the site contained “evidence of violence.”

Mexican press reports said Mr. Fernandez’s car was found abandoned but with blood stains, indicating there was violence. Manuel Espino, a former head of the PAN party said on Twitter that he heard Mr. Fernandez had been killed. Mr. Espino said he got the information from Mr. Fernandez’s family, but that he couldn’t confirm the information independently.

Officials said they had no knowledge about who might have kidnapped Mr. Fernandez. Most of the kidnappings in Mexico nowadays are done by drug gangs, who are locked in a major fight against each other and Mr. Calderon’s government. The fighting between has claimed 23,000 lives since Mr. Calderon took power.

If this was a kidnapping by the drug cartels, it marks a major escalation in the crimes against political figures although there have been many recently.

The past week has seen several attacks on political figures.

On Thursday, assailants in Valle Hermosa, a town 30 miles south of Brownsville, Texas, burst into the agricultural supplies business of mayoral candidate Jose Guajardo Varela and killed him and his son. Drug gangs in the region had warned Guajardo to pull out of the mayoral race.

The border area has become a battleground between two narcotics gangs, the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas, a group whose core is made up of former soldiers from the special forces.

Yet one more reason why federal government must do their job and protect the US borders. How much drug crime needs to take place on the US-Mexican border before the FEDS do their Constitutional jobs and protect America? As Arizona governor Jan Brewer recently said … President Obama, do you jobs, no one is laughing.

Gunmen kidnapped a prominent member of President Felipe Calderon’s political party on Saturday at his ranch about a two-hour drive north of Mexico City.

Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, the 1994 presidential candidate of the National Action party and a political mentor to Calderon and senior members of his Cabinet, apparently was abducted Friday night. The kidnapping was confirmed Saturday afternoon by Calderon’s office and the Mexican attorney general’s office.

      If we did something about our drug consumption at home, Mexico wouldn’t be in this mess.
      Stop blaming other people, assume your responsibilities.

      On last week’s Proceso there was an article about Arizona being the stronghold of Mexican druglords with the little help of corrupt American officials and ranchers that I are keen on the extra income.
      I cannot believe that all violence in the US borders is a problem of the Mexican druglords, somebody must be helping them over there. After all, we are talking about a lot of money. Mentioning Brewer’s comment here is out of place. Illegal immigrants are not responsible for kidnappings in Mexico or violence in the US. For a start most of them have no guns, they barely made it across the border.

      About drug consumption, I still cannot understand why a country that preaches free market economy around the world has a problem legalizing products that are highly consumed on its territory. Making them legal would reduce the violence that surrounds the trade, increase tax revenues, and ensure quality of the product thus increasing consumer’s health and safety.

      You just want the drugs but you dont want to take responsabilities for buying it illegally, dont you?

    4. Scott on May 17th, 2010 10:36 am


      Another typical liberal idiot blaming us for the tragedy of the country called Mexico.

      Maybe…if you government was corrupt and in the pocket of the drug cartels and cleaned up their own country; then maybe there wouldn’t be an influx of illegal criminals entering the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; not the UNITED STATES of Mexico.

      It’s a little misnomer that people buy most of their drugs from Mexico…a big fat liberal lie.

    5. El jijo e puta on May 18th, 2010 8:34 am

      To Scott,

      Do not ever try to enter MExico you stupid crack head.

    6. Scott on May 18th, 2010 1:27 pm

      #5 or should I say Mr. Illegal Immigrant – GET THE F*** OUT OF the country that my legal immigrant ancestors made great. You and your kind are ruining this country; over-running it; infesting it with your 10 children that we tax payers pay for; throwing up your gang signs…LOL

      What the f*** are you going to do about it if I were to step inside Mexico? Chase me on top of your donkey through the dirt poor streets?

      Believe me; no need to go to Mexico when you just in most cities in this country step outside and get your own smell of Mexico.

    7. lols scott on May 18th, 2010 1:42 pm

      Nice little typical conservative socttie. Do you really think drug consumption in Mexico, Colombia, etc. is high enough to support crime organizations that are in a possition to rival their goverments?
      And why do you think illegal criminals enter the US? you think they’re just going on tour?? they’re ensuring their market and supply lines stay clear… Don’t be dumb Scottie
      And what about invading mexico again? I mean, it would only be like the 30th country we screw over for the sake of our “safety”.

    8. Robert Rollsbard on May 18th, 2010 4:33 pm

      To #4 Scott
      I thought you NorthAmericans were intelligent, but there are people like you making stupid comments.
      Mr. Scott. If it wasn’t for you guys that consume so much drugs, Mexico wouldn’t have this drug problems. It is you who create these problems to Mexico. You should be grateful to Mexico that is combating the cartels that are created because of the US influence. Many mexicans are dying. You should be ashamed for the things you say. Go to Hell, you will have a lot of company, with all the drug consumer and seller society.
      In Punta del Este, on a Latin American President’s Convention they asked Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, president of Mexico that if Mexico was the trampoline for the drugs. And he answered, if it wasn’t for the pool, there would not be no trampoline. Have a good day!

    9. Robert Rollsbard on May 18th, 2010 4:37 pm

      To #6 Mr. Scott
      You are a really fine human being.
      A lot of class
      I am glad that the majority of the USA citizens, are not all like you.

    10. Scott on May 19th, 2010 6:33 am

      #9…oh the blame game continues. Give me a break. If the Mexican government wasn’t so corrupt and had the balls to stand up to thugs gang bangers, drug dealers like you; then Mexico wouldn’t be in the sorry druthers that they are in.

      Actually moron, the majority of American citizens do think like me. Check out the latest polls taken in Arizona and the nation as a whole on their thoughts on this bill; a big majority support it and other states are getting ready to pass similiar legislation to keep you and your ignorant illegals out.

      Mexico isn’t combating the drug cartels; give me a break. The Mexican government IS a drug cartel for Christ’s sake.

      If we consume so much drugs in this country; then why isn’t Mexico thriving with all this drug money they are getting from us?

      Mexicans are dying because their government doesn’t give a shiz about them. So that gives them free reign to enter our country illegally? God, I can’t stand you stupid liberal idiots who tote nothing but the bullshiz the leftist MSM shows you…typical liberal talking points…LOL.

      Who cares what your corrupt President said…what else is he going to say; that its his fault? LOL. It’s called the blame game and your losing!

      You idiots seem to forget that it’s called the United States of America; not the US of Latin America.

      Really? You want to prove that the majority of Americans are not like me? LOL.

      Common sense and logic morons.

      Now get the f*** out of my country!

      You are pathetic, probably from the KKK.
      No difference with Adolf Hitler
      Have a good Day. I hope you get away with all your traumas.
      Be Happy.
      Your Shrink, if you have one, must be delighted with you. Definitely you are a disgrace for humanity. How come you know so much about Mexico? You make so many statements, that anybody would think they are real. For sure you have a Fan Club.
      Again Have a Nice Day.

      Mr I know everything alias Scott.
      Just for your peace of mind, I am not in YOUR Country. So I don’t have to get the f*** out.
      Don’t think that aaaaaallllll the mexicans are or wan’t to be in YOUR Country.
      All the people in Mexico are corrupt? prove it! ASSHOLE (without ***). It’s easy to talk. Give me one, only one proof of what you say.
      At last in Mexico we don’t go all over the world with wars killing your own people and others.
      Bye, bye.

    13. Robert Rollsbard on May 19th, 2010 1:19 pm

      TO # 10
      And for last. Do you know with which money they kill in these wars so many of your countrymen and others???
      WITH YOUR MONEY. TAX MONEY OF THE TAXPAYERS OF THE USA. Including the tax money of the mexicans living there (legally of course) and of all the tax money of mexican tourist and tax money of exportations to Mexico, and OF COURSE INDEED, if you pay taxes, with YOUR MONEY! Yes, they kill your “paisanos” with YOUR money. They spend YOUR money of YOUR Country in stupid economic-wise wars
      Keep having a nice day! I am LOL. And for the concern of this article; I hope they find Mr. Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, well and alive. He is a prominent politician and lawyer of Mexico. A successful and decent man, and if by any chance you think something else? PROVE IT! intelligently not BLAH BLAH BLAH.

    14. Scott on May 20th, 2010 6:47 am

      LOL…moron…you are right you don’t go all over the world in you non-english writing confusing bullshiz; something about killing others or whatever…you are right; your country does not do that; they just kill each other over DRUGS and the piss poor dirt territory.

      BTW, I don’t need a US/Economic history lesson from someone who doesn’t even know what anything about our economy or our history in wars except from some newpaper that is thrown at your straw house. I know my country’s history present and past. LOL…Some scumbag illegal telling me about our WARS. Here’s a clue moron in case you don’t know: there is a stategical reason why were are in Afghanistan and Iraq; but your too stupid to know it; its called IRAN; nuff said.

      BTW, remember the Alamo?

      I’m betting your getting money sent down from all your cousins and cousins cousins and their cousins cousins while they illegally work here.

      Let’s look at the DUI stats and DUI fatalities that stem from illegal immigrants in this country!

      I don’t need to prove that a LARGE majority of Mexicans are corrupt. Those who come here and obtain legal status the right way, no problem. But you and your fence jumping gang bangers and drug dealers who come here and pop out ten kids so they can receive MY TAXPAYER money on supporting their kids. BIG PROBLEM.

      He’s not alive…drug cartels have killed him or the corrupt government WHICH LEGALIZED DRUG USE in your country got rid of him; either or; doesn’t matter, both the same.

      Gang signs! LOL! MS-13 LOL!

    15. Robert Rollsbard on May 20th, 2010 4:35 pm

      Mr. proudly illegal Moron is responding you in my non-english writing confusing bullshiz (???) and while I am receiving money from all my cousins and cousins cousins and their cousins cousins while they illegally work there… I have to thank you for the lesson to improve my broken english. (Which is by the way, much better that your NO spanish). LADIES AND GENTLEMAN. Mr. Scott has just defined a new meaning for the word KILL, from now on the meaning for KILLING is STRATEGY.
      BTW remember 9-11?
      FYI – MS-13 is Mara Salvatrucha from El Salvador not Mexico. El Salvador is a Country in Central America, and Mexico is a country in North America, like the USA and Canada OK?

    16. Scott on May 21st, 2010 6:17 am

      LOL…you are right…I don’t need to speak Spanish you bozo because I’m an AMERICAN. An American that came from LEGAL immigrants who came over here in the early 1920′s and worked their butts off in factories and other low level paying jobs. These are the people that made this country great because they produced; they worked; they earned their keep to make a better life for their families. That’s the American way; not the Mexican way. I’m not sure why you are so confused.

      Ah…Central America is tied to Mexico and many El Salvadorians come through Mexico to get to the United States idiot. Don’t be blind AND stupid! BTW…there are Mexicans in MS-13. I happen to know that as a FACT. Maybe you need a brush up on your facts idiot!

      OH I’m sorry; then screw you and your JUAREZ cartel. That’s why they hide in the shadows because they are cowards and know they can’t stand up to our great police officers in this country.

      WTF are you talking about in your stupidity about KILLING is strategy?!? LOL! I’m not sure where you get that, but whatever, just goes to prove that you’re a MORON!

      Imagine that; some idiot comparing the Alamo to 9-11. I’m sure you wouldn’t say something about 9-11 to a family member who lost a loved one on that day because your teeth would be knocked through the back of your head. F*** YOU! Big difference idiot….one was a WAR the other a terrorist act; so it goes to prove you believe and support terrorits and the killing of Americans. Your credibility as a human being is shot and you are basically just a waste of oxygen and life. PUNK!

    17. Robert Rollsbard on May 21st, 2010 11:14 am

      Idiot Moron again, right from my straw house, i want to tell you that, … wow,… you are me hero.
      Please watch your TV and look at the news. Mr. Obama, the president of your country had yesterday, an excellent reunion in Congress with the president of Mexico. It’s nice to see that your great country has great people like your president and I must say like the Democrat Congressmen. ( So not all americans think like you, like you said before. And this is a real proof! not Blah, blah, blah, right? comprende? )

      I wan’t to ask you one question, please answer to me seriously. If, like you say, all the american people hate mexicans, why do you give them work?, really, why do you hire them? Why don’t you guys make the work they do?.

      BTW – Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, after the Mandarin Chinese
      (source:, then comes English.

      and BTW you have friends in MS-13?. People you know? nice friends ah?, now I am beginning to understand why you have so much class.

      Please Scott, organize your ideas, please! Mexico is a Country and it’s not tied with El Salvador. One of the biggest problems in Mexico is the South Border, and the biggest problem are your friends the MS-13., and the MS-13 is a Salvadorian movement originated in LA in the 80′s. Are there mexicans in the MS-13? I don’t know, and I don’t want to know anything about those criminals. Are you comparing them, to people you hire and exploit that work hard, exactly like your’e ancestors did?. Good people that worked their butts off in factories and other low level paying jobs. exactly like you say.
      They are human beings, please, if you don’t want them, PLEASE don’t hire them, don’t let them work their butts off in low level paying jobs. And this will be the solution.
      I admire these people, they have the balls to risk their lives and be treated like animals, just to have a better living, like your family or any other immigrant that came to the USA before. The only difference is that back then, was much easier to legalize and become a US Citizen, than now.
      Pardon my broken english.
      Have a nice week end.
      The illegal Moron and now Punk

    18. Rommel on May 21st, 2010 1:05 pm

      I regret to say that one of the illegal immigration problem is because there is a big U.S. corporations that take the work to small companies, the different from Latin American and U.S. is that U.S. imposed on the strength of their presence in other countries and make up excuses to invade and is one of the principals responsible for poverty in Latin America for example check your clothes and you will see that most is done in poor countries but the companies are U.S. companies where they pay 2-3 dollars per day to these people and we pay here $60 per shirt. that my friends is called exploitation

    19. Rommel on May 21st, 2010 1:43 pm

      Scott lest go to back to the class room and study Geography. All countries from Bering Strain (Alaska) to Punta de Fuego (Argentina) are American Countries so stop calling your self American only. Unfortunately I do not know how to call a United State of American People because in Spanish we call you guys “Estadounidense” is like From Mexico “Mexican or Colombia” Colombian”. I hope the next time you say you’re American think about what I said.

      On the other hand you know why call us American? Lest go to class room and study history. We call America by Amerigo Vespucci Was an Italian explorer, navigator and cartographer. The continent of America is popularly believed to have its name derived from the feminized Latin version of historical first name

      Respect and admire the United States but must call things as they are. The United States killed and exploited many nations

    20. Robert Rollsbard on May 21st, 2010 5:54 pm

      You got the point, many US citizens, specially the Scott type, think that the USA (America as they call it) is the center of the world, moreover is the world, they are the rulers and nothing else matters. And with that arrogance attitude and the lack of culture that they have, they are telling everyone what to do and are trying to take over as many countries as they can with wars and killing even their own people for economic reasons (oil of course) or like Scott says, for strategic purposes. Imagine when I told him that he doesn’t know Spanish he answers: (sic) I don’t need to speak Spanish you bozo because I’m an AMERICAN. Yes why speak another language, why learn something from other countries? No, he doesn’t need that, because HE IS AMERICAN!. Why cultivate and have some culture. And anything Latin is Mexico! Imagine he can’t tell the difference between Mexican and Salvadorenians, all he can tell is dirty words ((EDIT)) because saying those words he feels very important. He says (sic) there are Mexicans in MS-13. I happen to know that as a FACT. Imagine with what kind of people he is surrounded, and he affirms that is a fact, frankly makes me sick.
      And sorry for the 9-11 issue, but this is just to show what they get for this US arrogance and for trying to be the rulers of the world and going to countries that they don’t belong, but YES they have oil.
      Rommel, you too, have a nice week end
      SM: Okay liberal know it all, try me out …

      I live in America and believe that if you do, guess what you need to know how to speak English. If you do not, you are at a great loss.

      I know how to speak Spanish and French … so what?

      I also have plenty of friends that are Mexican, Puerto Rican, Spanish and Cuban … so what?

      You complain about America and condemn it … guess what brain surgeon, last time I checked it was those from other countries, namely Mexico that wanted in the US.

      I guess for all the faults that you find with it people still want to come here.

      Guess what genius … countries are defined by their borders, citizens (legal ones) and laws!!!


    21. Robert Rollsbard on May 22nd, 2010 3:00 pm

      You live in America? I think you’re trying to say that you live in the USA.
      Please read Rommel comments.
      Yes, you are right, countries are defined by their borders, and the USA border is at the South, with Mexico; and at the North, with Canada. Mexico, USA and Canada are in North America, And BTW, I am not genius, I learned it in Elementary School.
      I also speak French, probably not as good as you and Spanish, so if you can define better USA and America, in Spanish or French be my guest.
      My English is terrible, but you understood everything.
      Have a nice day. Be Happy.

    22. Rommel on May 22nd, 2010 3:43 pm

      Let me put this in another perspective. Nobody has said that is correct to illegal aliens to come to a country, but I think it’s difficult to stop the unstoppable because of the ambition to being the world’s largest power. U.S. in its short history is the manager of invading countries and exploit that generates the emigration of people to a better life. Is a natural human being what is best for their families. The migration is not exclusively U.S. problem this comes from ancient times. I assure you that U.S does not put U.S. companies in Europe and exploits workers. We all know that U.S. politics is to lie to the people of U.S. or I could explain what has happened in Iraq? Where are the weapons of mass destruction? Why U.S. does business with Communist China and not Cuba? Why U.S. is mandated to make a dirty war in Nicaragua in the 80s on the pretext that Nicaragua was a threat to U.S.. The ICJ (International Court of Justice) ruling in favor of Nicaragua. But guess what? The superpower ignored the demand and never pays the money to Nicaragua. If this had been in favor of them had done to implement this resolution and if not, have invaded the country as they do and do not write this just for writing can check this link “ _United_States) “God blesses the people of U.S. because they are people of good heart but their governments and transnational companies destroy to many countries and destroy the lives of many people including his own people
      Hey Rommel, how about some cheese with that whine!

      Give me a break, Us, blah, blah, blah … I guess Europe can than it’s lucky stars that we invaded it in WWII to liberate it and thank General Patton for kicking Nazi Panzer tank Commander Rommel’s a$$ too.

      You haters are so predictable.

      After all your hate America, USA is evil BS … people still want to come here. Imagine that. Our issue is with those that break the law in coming to America.

      Usted entiende al señor?
      Comprenez-vous ?

      For Scott Information, the MS, Mara, and MS-13 The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, set up in the 1980s by Salvadoran Immigrants in the city’s Pico-Union neighborhood Who immigrated to the United States After the Central American civil wars of the 1980s and has spread to Central America, other parts of the United States, and Mexico. But who do you think he had his hands in this war? You. Are correct my friends “U.S”. many of these boys came fleeing from the war without parents and became a social problem in the 80s I disagree with these groups that are a slag and have been responsible for destroying our youth.

    25. Clap for SM on May 25th, 2010 6:30 am

      Yey, after dumb ol scott, now we have SM replying…

      He does sound smart, 3 languages. He’s not a racist, with his mexican and puerto rican friends. He lives in the US, wow, lucky him. And that’s not all, he also knows how to define a country.

      Well my friend, with all this curriculum, how do you call a country that in its little over 200 years, has had nearly 100 foreign military interventions??
      - The keeper of peace?
      - The savior of the civilized world?

      I know you feel proud that our country is the one kicking butts, but what name would you give it?
      I’ll give you WW2, we did help save the world from the NAZIs, and maybe in WW1 we had a good justification, and some others may have a semilogical explanation, but how do you explain somewhere around 1 every 2 years??
      If you read about most of these interventions, they have no single political ideal (they topple right wing, left wing, democratic, etc governments), they have no single side (they help one country, then turn against it, just depending of convenience), but there is one thing most have in common, MONEY. Please read before commenting, I did mention most, not all.

      Now, yes, people do want to live in the US because that’s where the jobs are, and because T.V. sells you a way of life practically only the states supports.
      Now, what would happen if everyone had a regular US citizen life: We’d be drowning in crap. The natural resources this world has are limited, and 1st world countries (led by the US) are using way more resources than the ones this world can support (per capita). So we’re not only exploiting people around the globe, we’re also exploiting the natural resources.

      So go ahead, feel proud of our country, the leaders of the world.
      And no, I’m not saying America is alone in the blame, not even close, but we are surely on top.
      SM: Good grief … You are a true fool. What are you 10?

      “I’ll give you WWII” … ??? … You might want to read a history book. How gracious of you to give the USA WWII. How big of you. That little event only saved the world as we know it.

      Had the USA not done WWII, wonder what you would be doing right now?

      Maybe you might want to give us the Cold War to and the defeat of the Soviet Union. What ya think Keebler?

      I am glad to see you are more of a smart A$$ than informed, but then again … how typical of a troll.

      I am so sorry that you hate the US; however, it it were not for us … the world would probably not be free today. We apologize to no one for that.

    26. Robert Rollsbard on May 25th, 2010 9:57 am

      You’re a one track mind fighter. I think you should read the commentaries, before responding them. With your perfect english, how sad that you are not understanding the core of what they tell you. The USA has done wrong things as well as any other countries. Is the USA the perfect country? If something is wrong, you accept to hear other points of view? Open your mind, you speak several languages and have good friends from different countries. Above, they are d’accord with you. And I, as a legal not corrupted mexican citizen living in Mexico legally, I want to thank the USA for bringing peace to the world, I think is a great Country with great people as I said before, but certainly has done in history many terrible things to the world, and that doesn’t mean to “Hate the USA”. You and Scott think USA is perfect and discuss even the most bad obvious things just to defend your Country, OK its valid, but in my opinion, sometimes you must have more humility and accept what is wrong. And coming back to the main article of this blog, I am praying that Mr. Diego Fernandez de Cevallos is alive and well; a prominent lawyer and professional.

    27. Robert Rollsbard on May 25th, 2010 10:03 am

      And, you can save your dirty and offensive words. I have the maturity to go over them. I rather discuss with my brain, common sense and knowledge, than with arrogant dirty and offensive words.

    28. Clap for SM on May 25th, 2010 3:42 pm

      LOL… the world would not be free today

      Cold war?? what do I have to thank? Surely the Soviet Union did more crap than the US, but ask the Vietnamese if they want to thank the US for 1-2 million dead, because someone else wanted to decide what was best for them? Or what about all the US backed latin american dictators (trujillo, pinochet, duvalier, etc) we supported just to keep communism out? Do you know why we backed them??
      Because communism doesn’t accept foreign inversions, that means no united fruit company, and other giants, or the cheap labor for the US.

      The world owes the US industry for WW2, but USSR is the one that did the greatest sacrifice to stop the Nazis, so you should also thank communism.

      To my next question I am curious to see how someone who thinks like you answers. I could ask you about a lot of invasions, but I’ll stick to our case in hand, Mexico. So, why did we invade Mexico, and took half their territory? where we freeing the world as you say? And don’t just say it’s ancient history.

      Again, thanks for turning my day into a happy one… the world would not be free LOLz

      btw, don’t think I didn’t notice how you avoided answering any of my points from my first post. The only thing you did was call me names, and cry about me saying “I’ll give you WW2″ instead of, thanks for saving the world from evil germany…

      Please man, read a little, and don’t just go back to your patriotic high school history books.
      SM: Sorry troll boy, I majored in history with a focus on WWII, military strategy and Japanese-American relations. I hardy think I have to read anything that you would have to offer.

      BTW, you can thank us for saving you from evil USSR also.

      Trolls should not bite off more than they can chew … run along, you are predictable and a bore.
