More people tied to irregularities of Borge administration

Mexico City, Mexico — Two more people have been tied to the irregularities of ex-governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge.

Five more complaints against the administration have been filed by the Tax Administration Service (SAT) in the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) against two assumed prestanombres of the ex-governor.

The newspaper Reforma reported that named are María Lourdes Pinelo Nieto and César Celso González Hermosillo y Melgarejo, the latter being the administrator of the companies Caracol 65 S.A. of C.V. and Syenat del Caribe S.A. of C.V.

Pinelo Nieto served as secretary of Borge’s father, while Celso González has served during the last decades as the personal lawyer of the family of the ex-Quintana Roo governor.

SAT indicated that its auditors made visits to verify the accounting of those close to Borge for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015, however, when they arrived at the businesses they realized that in one of the locations had not been at the filed address for 10 years and that SAT was never notified of the move, which would have altered tax obligations.

Pinelo registered as an RFC in 2005 with a tax domicile in Cozumel where auditors arrived in October 2016 and found that in the fiscal domicile, there is a sign that refers to a business called Centro Nevero Polar.

Also in October 2016, they visited González Hermosillo in Cozumel, but they did not find him and requested the clarification of bank deposits to the company Caracol and Siyenat to verify the compliance of taxes in 2015.

Both companies changed their address with the lawyer of Borge’s family but did not notify authorities. The result is thousands of peso in unpaid taxes.

Those involved are being accused to failing to notify government officials of a business relocation for tax purposes as well as for altering or destroying accounts. Both are considered fugitives from justice for the alleged money laundering for which the ex-governor is in prison.
