Fugitive Mexican Politician Arrested in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY – The fugitive former governor of the Mexican Gulf state of Veracruz was arrested at a hotel in Panajachel, a city in the Guatemalan province of Solola, the National Police said.

Javier Duarte was arrested Saturday night, the National Police’s General Criminal Investigations Agency (SGIC) said.

The 43-year-old Duarte was the subject of an international arrest warrant on organized crime and other charges.

Duarte was arrested at 8:00 pm Saturday at the La Riviera Hotel, one of the most luxurious in the area, by Interpol agents from Guatemala.

The politician, a member of Mexico’s governing Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), was the subject of an Interpol red notice, an alert from the international police organization that can serve as a basis for arrest in some countries.

The former governor will be taken to an air force base on Sunday and flown to Mexico, police spokesmen told EFE.

The Mexican Attorney General’s Office alleges that Duarte misappropriated large sums of public funds between 2012-2015, using the money to buy real estate in Mexico and abroad.

Interpol sent the red notice for Duarte, one of the most-wanted men in Mexico, to 192 countries.
