Colombia provided Mexico with support from an elite group to look for Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, according to the security cooperation agreements between the two nations, as reported by El Tiempo newspaper.

Three retired generals and six officers from the National Police are members of "the elite commission that the institution sent to Mexico for the hunt of the kingpin," reported the daily.

The commission was headed by general Rosso José Serrano, Ismael Trujillo Polanco and Luis Enrique Montenegro, who provided support to the Mexican authorities for a week.

Serrano and Trujillo Polanco were the heads of the police, while Montenegro headed the secret police, and they are behind the arrests of the heads of the Medellin, Cali and Norte del Valle cartels.
