Chetumal, Q.R. — The Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) has presented evidence before a federal court and obtained an order of appearance for former Quintana Roo governor, Roberto Borge, on charges of organized crime.
In accordance with criminal case 541/2019 filed with the District Court Specializing in the Accusatory Criminal System in the State of Mexico, the FGR is ready to move forward on extending the charges against the former governor with authorization from the Panama government in terms of their extradition agreement.
Based on the mandate granted by the federal court, the Embassy of Mexico has already informed the Ministry of Public Relations of Panama that the prosecutor’s office has opened a new file against the former governor for organized crime.
“The Unit Specialized in Investigation of Operations with Resources of Illicit Origin and Counterfeiting or Alteration of Currency of the Office of the Special Prosecutor for Investigation of Crimes in Organized Crime, request consent of the Rule of Specialty of the Extradition Treaty between Mexico and Panama, so that the Panamanian government authorizes Borge Angulo to be charged with the new criminal case.”
