State seizes 22 more properties from mother of Borge

Cancun, Q.R. — Another 22 properties have been officially seized from the mother of ex-Quintana Roo governor, Roberto Borge Angulo.

The properties, which included Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel, were ordered seized by a Chetumal judge. The Public Registry of Property had the real estate listed in the name of María Rosa Yolanda Angulo Castilla, mother of the former governor of Quintana Roo.

One of the reclaimed properties was located in Cancun, while another was from The Elements condominiums in Playa del Carmen. The remaining 20 properties were all located on the island of Cozumel.

Director of the Public Registry of Property and Commerce, Carlos Humberto Pereira Vázquez, reported the real estate seizure in an official letter dated March of this year regarding property sold to Angulo Castilla while her son was acting state governor.

In February of 2017, the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) secured 25 other properties found to be in the names of Angulo Castillo, César Celso Hermosillo and Santiago Samuel Jiménez, all of whom are linked to the former governor, Roberto Borge Angulo.

In March, the state also repossessed three lots in the Cancun Hotel Zone that government officials said were illegally bought during the Borge administration. The lots had an estimated value of $4,000 USD per square meter.
