Fugitive Former Mexican Governor Arrested in Guatemala

Lawyer Rodrigo Sandoval waits outside Guatemala City's Matamoros prison, to visit Mexico's former Veracruz state Gov. Javier Duarte, Sunday, April 16, 2017.

"That's why his capture is really important for Mexico's federal government because until now it seemed that they just let him slip through their fingers despite all these allegations swirling around him".

A fugitive former Mexican governor was apprehended over the weekend.

Public disgust with corruption also contributed to electoral losses for the president's party in elections for governor previous year, including in Veracruz, where the PRI had governed uninterrupted for more than eight decades.

In a statement, the Mexican foreign relations ministry said it'll seek Duarte's extradition so he can formally face charges here.

He was in the municipality of Panajachel, which is a picturesque tourist town on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala's highlands.

Bill O'Reilly Severance: Fox News Host to Get $25 Million
On Wednesday, O'Reilly, host of the Fox primetime show "The O'Reilly Factor", was sacked following a cloud of harassment allegations against him.

As Duarte arrived at a military base in the country's capital, flanked by police, he gave no comment, according to the Associated Press.

At the time he denied having links to phantom businesses that allegedly won state contracts, and said he had not stolen a single peso of state money or diverted government funds overseas.

He said: "I don't have foreign accounts, I don't have properties anywhere".

Authorities were tipped off to his presence in Guatemala by the November 10, 2016 detention of a person at the airport in the border city of Tapachula. "At this point in the investigation..." Agriculture and oil-rich Veracruz, on Mexico's Gulf coast, is one of Mexico's largest states, and it has historically been a stronghold of Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI.

"In the best case it will give him a small boost in the short term but it also draws attention to the corruption of the governors", said Hope.

Javier Duarte, who until previous year governed Veracruz state for President Enrique Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), became a symbol of corruption in Mexico and his case is highly politicized with elections looming.

It was an increase of £200 million, or 9%, on the same period a year ago - and the Manchester clubs were responsible for half of this.

Duarte has also been criticized for rampant violence in the state during his administration, as drug cartels warred for territory and thousands of people were killed or disappeared.

Under Mr Duarte, Veracruz also became the most unsafe region of the country for journalists, with 17 killed during his term.

Tomás Yarrington, former governor of Tamaulipas state who has been accused by Mexican and US prosecutors of money laundering and racketeering, among other charges, was captured in Italy last week.

It says he is wanted on suspicion of organized crime and illicit enrichment.

Elías Beltran stated that two people provided Javier Duarte with the logistics for taking refuge in Guatemala.

Duarte, Yarrington, Veytia and Cesar Duarte were all members of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's ruling PRI.
