For one, the fact that the authorities seem to have no current photos of him – the pictures are all several years old. On the other Oseguera is likely to have the doubling of the bounty as a confirmation of the perceived – especially since the United States consider anti-trust “Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación” (CJNG) as one of the “five most dangerous TRANS-national criminal organizations in the world”.
