Mexican Ex-Governor Arrested on Tax-Fraud Charges

MEXICO CITY – The former governor of the central Mexican state of Aguascalientes, Luis Armando Reynoso, has been arrested for alleged tax fraud.

Reynoso was arrested Thursday in Leon, a city in the central state of Guanajuato, and transferred to a jail in Aguascalientes, the federal Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.

The investigation into alleged financial fraud stems from his failure to file his 2009 income tax return, said Seido, the organized-crime division of Mexico’s AG’s office.

A criminal case was launched on June 24, and the arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday.

A member of the opposition conservative National Action Party, or PAN, who governed Aguascalientes from December 2004 to November 2010, Reynoso been arrested twice before – in 2013 and 2014 – but was released on both occasions after posting bail.

He also faces accusations of misappropriation of public funds, while the Aguascalientes state AG’s office has been investigating the politician for more than a year over suspected illegal transactions allegedly also involving others close to him.
