Former Mexican economy minister accused of illicit enrichment

Mexico, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) A federal judge sentenced Idelfonso Guajardo Villarreal, former Secretary of Economy during the government of Enrique Peña Nieto, to trial for alleged illicit enrichment, the Attorney General's Office (FGR) reported on Saturday.

The Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office announced that the former official will sign periodically and cannot leave the country, as this was the agreement reached in the control court during the initial hearing at the Reclusorio Norte.

Guajardo headed the team of Mexican officials who carried out the negotiations of the Free Trade Agreement during the six-year term of Enrique Peña Nieto and concluded with the signing of the T-MEC.

The official note of the Attorney General’s Office indicates that the former official -recently elected federal congressman- is considered allegedly responsible for illicit enrichment due to the fact that ‘he obtained an unjustified increase in his patrimony, related to the acquisition of works of art and several deposits in national and foreign bank accounts’ for more than 450 000 dollars.

The Attorney General’s Office pointed out that the former official obtained an unjustified increase in his patrimony, of which he could not prove its legal origin from 2014 to 2018, during his final term as head of the Economy Secretariat.

In another matter, a control judge issued an arrest warrant against Interjet airline businessman Miguel Alemán Magnani for the crime of tax fraud.

Judicial sources indicated that the order was at the request of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), which judicialized the investigation file against the businessman, for which he could face preventive detention.
