A legal meeting in Panama on Thursday November 23 ended in the agreement for the return of ex-Quintana Roo governor Roberto Borge to Mexico, according to Riviera Maya News.
The Mexican and Panamanian defense team of Roberto Borge met Thursday in Panama to prepare the withdrawal of legal appeals that so far have been filed against the extradition of Borge to face corruption charges.
Arturo González Baso, one of the three attorneys in charge of defending Borge in Panama, said Borge made the decision to return to Mexico last week, two months after being transferred from El Renacer prison to the national police cell.
González Baso explained that three Mexican lawyers, two men and one woman, are in charge of taking the case to the Mexican authorities. He says they traveled to Panama yesterday to legally organize the withdrawal of Borge Angulo.
“Mr. Borge has decided to end the process, and we will desist from all actions in order for him to travel to Mexico and face charges,” said the litigant.
González Baso said that Monday Nov. 27 they will present the necessary documents to the Panamanian authorities so that the legal remedies undertaken in favor of their client can be stopped for extradition back to Mexico.
The crimes for which Roberto Borge must respond to the Mexican authorities are embezzlement, exploitation of power and irregular performance of public functions.
