Mexican governor extradited to Mexico from United States

Mexico City, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) The former governor of the state of Chihuahua, Cesar Duarte was extradited by the United States back to Mexico after having fled from Mexico almost three years ago.

Duarte will face numerous charges pending for embezzlement, criminal association, illicit enrichment, and is also accused of having stolen more than 100 million pesos (five million dollars) during his government in the administration of former President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The former official was delivered by the US authorities yesterday and the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) handed him over to the office of Chihuahua’s attorney to be tried and sentenced there.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the FGR issued a statement reporting that Duarte was extradited by the United States.

The accused will be placed at the disposal of the Control Judge of the Judicial District, by virtue of the fact that he was the one who issued the arrest warrant against Duarte on October 8th, 2019 and the one that will see to the initiation of the corresponding criminal process.

The first point in the agenda of Duarte’s trial is an apparent illicit transfer of more than 96 million pesos (almost five million dollars) between 2011 and 2015 to companies based in Chihuahua of which he was a shareholder.

Duarte administered Chihuahua from 2010 to 2016, and was later arrested in Miami in July 2020 by the US Federal Marshal Service, with his lawyers processing various appeals all this time seeking to prevent his extradition to Mexico.
