Mexican Actress Irma Serrano Arrested

TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, MEXICO – Flamboyant actress and politico Irma Serrano was arrested in connection with a three-year-old case arising from a landlord-tenant dispute in Mexico City, authorities said.

Known as “La Tigresa,” the 75-year-old Serrano was arrested Wednesday by police officers from the capital after appearing on a television news program broadcast from Tuxtla Gutierrez, capital of the southern state of Chiapas.

Serrano arrived in Mexico City late Wednesday and was expected to be granted house arrest pending trial.

La Tigresa became a controversial figure in the 1970s after she published several books about her romantic relationship with Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, who was Mexico’s president from 1964 to 1970.

In the 1990s, she became a businesswoman and launched a political career, running successfully for Congress on the ticket of the leftist PRD, serving initially in the lower house and later in the Senate.

Serrano, wearing a blouse with Indian bordering, appeared on the Televisa television network’s program “Hoy,” which was broadcast from the actress’s native Chiapas this week and at the end of her appearance there she was taken into custody by Mexico City cops.

The actress faces charges in the capital for forcibly evicting tenants from a building she owns, despite their having a valid lease. EFE
