Carlos Mateo Aguirre Rivero, the brother of the former governor of Guerrero, Ángel Aguirre Rivero, was arrested by the federal authorities, as part of an investigation by the Office of the Attorney General (PGR).
He was detained on Tuesday February 10th, along with six other people, accused of misappropriation of funds for US$19.2 million dollars.
Tomás Zerón de Lucio, head of the Criminal Investigation Agency, informed at a press conference that the arrest was carried out by federal officers. He added that Luis Ángel AguirrePérez, Paulo Ignacio Hughes Acosta, Mauricio Francisco Hughes Acosta, Alejandro Carlos Hughes Acosta and Jorge Eduardo Hughes Acosta were also arrested.
The arrest warrants were executed in different areas in the state of Guerrero, and the detainees were placed in the federal prison of El Altiplano, in the State of Mexico.
Zerón de Lucio said that this group, relatives and advisors of the governor on leave, received resources from various government entities directly to their bank accounts in 2012, 2013 and 2014, without any direct relationship with government contractors.
He added that they posed as legal representatives of the companies used for the misappropriation of funds.
In 2011, Carlos Mateo was appointed Executive State Coordinator during the government of Zeferino Torre Blanca, and he supposedly benefited from his multiple contacts.
The state leadership of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRI) in Guerrero requested the investigation.
