(Nov 02, 2007) On September 19, 2007, Mexico and the United States signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in areas of training and exchange of information on criminal matters and experience in oral trials. The memorandum was signed by American prosecutors Gary King and Lawrence Wasden from New Mexico and Idaho, respectively, and by Mexican prosecutors Patricia González, Evencio Martínez, and Francisco Coronato from Chihuahua, Oaxaca, and Morelos, respectively, as well as by the elected Governor of Baja California, José Guadalupe Osuna. González commented that this agreement will benefit the Mexican prosecutors' offices in the implementation of a new justice system and of more advanced methods of scientific criminal investigation.
