Only one of the Flores twins, the
twins who betrayed El Chapo, took the stand in the trial against Chapo Guzman,
that was Pedro Flores.
Once almost hailed as heroes by
the U.S. government and the court for the extensive information forwarded by
the twins, now the government is changing their tune saying the twins were
deceptive holding back information, especially where their assets are hidden.



 
Back story:
To Pedro Flores, the two men who
pulled him over had looked like cops.
But moments later, face down in
the back of a windowless van, his hands and feet zip-tied, Flores realized he’d
been duped.
At 22, he had been quietly
working with his twin brother, Margarito, to create the most successful
drug-dealing partnership in Chicago’s history.  
Now, hog-tied, his
diamond-studded cellphone out of reach, Flores was powerless.

All he could do was whisper a
prayer.
“Don’t worry,” one of his captors
told him. “Once we get the money, we’re going to cut you loose.”


The Flores twins would come to
believe a man they thought was their friend, Saul Rodriguez, was behind the
kidnapping. They had known Rodriguez for a few years, and at the time of the
kidnapping, as Pedro Flores rode to his uncertain fate, they had plans to go
with Rodriguez to Las Vegas to see a welterweight title match. Rodriguez
arranged the tickets.
The twins and Rodriguez were all
big-time drug dealers, but the similarities ended there.

While the twins were loath to
resort to violence, Rodriguez reveled in it, according to a Sun-Times review of
court records and interviews with law enforcement and underworld figures.
At the time, the kidnapping in
September 2003 might have seemed like Rodriguez’s knockout blow to the twins.
But 11 years after Pedro Flores
was snatched from an alley behind his family’s Southwest Side home, he and his
brother appear to have been playing a longer, smarter game: rope-a-dope.
On Friday when Rodriguez faces
sentencing in Chicago for a career of killings, home invasions and drug
trafficking, a federal judge will pass final judgment on the twins’ and
Rodriguez’s contrasting routes to the top of Chicago’s underworld. [read full article here]
