Mexican authorities continue the hunt for clues to discover the links that Javier Duarte De Ochoa, ex-governor of Veracruz, would have in Costa Rica.
On November 13th, the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) of Mexico announced that they had frozen bank accounts, companies and properties linked to Duarte. In addition, they asked the governments of Costa Rica, the United States and Spain to investigate the traces of the politician.
Duarte is investigated for crimes of organized delinquency, operations with resources of illicit origin and others that are to be determined during the process.
The politician is allegedly responsible of millionaire embezzlement. Apparently, he would have appropriated more than 26 million dollars and the financial deficit that he caused to Veracruz would exceed $ 386 million dollars.
The Mexican government is offering a reward of more than 400 million colones.
