Last March, Marx Yu received confirmation of his sentence of 15 years plus a fine of just over 65,000 pesos by the Specialized Unitary Court for Criminal Matters of Toluca, however he had already served the time of his sentence.
Zhenli Ye Gon, a businessman of Chinese origin but naturalized Mexican -since his marriage to Marx Yu-, allegedly trafficked in chemical precursors such as pseudoephedrine, a substance used to make drugs such as methamphetamine.
His wife was arrested at her residence in Lomas de Chapultepec in March 2007, where more than 205.5 million dollars, 17.3 million pesos and 201,460 euros were found, which is considered the largest seizure of money from organized crime in Mexico.
The capture of Zhenli Ye Gon and his wife Tomoiyi Marx Yu occurred after a seizure of nearly 20 tons of pseudoephedrine in 2006, in the Port of Lázaro Cárdenas, which was on a ship from Hong Kong.
Marx Yu left the Santiaguito Prison in the State of Mexico; Meanwhile, her husband has been in the Altiplano Prison since 2016, after being extradited from the United States.
