We are told that in the coming weeks there will certainly be dust, because the house is very, very dirty.Also, El Universal reported a few days ago that the agency will seek to recapture Jorge Hank Rhon, based on the argument that the judge who ordered the former Tijuana mayor's release did not fully consider the evidence against him.
