The newspaper Reforma reports that the company made the deposit in 2014 to an account of the State Water and Sewer Commission. The funds were then transferred to the Secretariat of Finance and Planning but after that it is unclear where the money went.
“From there, it disappeared,” said Finance Secretary Juan Vergara Fernández.
The final destination of the money is being investigated by the Quintana Roo Secretariat of Public Management as part of its probe into Borge’s finance secretary, Juan Pablo Guillermo Molina, who is also accused of diverting funds, in his case more than 400 million pesos.
Borge was arrested the night of Sunday June 4 as he was waiting to board a flight to Paris.
The federal Attorney General’s office (PGR) says that it will do all it can to ensure that he remains in custody while extradition proceedings take place.
Israel Lira Salas, the head of SEIDO — the agency responsible for investigating organized crime — told Reforma that because Borge has sufficient resources to be considered a flight risk they would make “a formal request that he be kept in detention.”
While ultimately it will be a decision for Panamanian authorities, the hope is that an exception will be made in the ex-governor’s case to ensure that he doesn’t flee and eventually faces trial in Mexico.
The PGR has already requested the continued provisional detention of Borge and is expected to formally lodge a request for repatriation within 6o days.
