An internal committee of Mexico’s governing PRI party said that it decided to strip party rights from one of its state governors under federal investigation for corruption, the Associated Press reported.
The Institutional Revolutionary Party’s (PRI) national justice committee said in a statement Monday Sept. 26 that it removed the party rights of Veracruz Gov. Javier Duarte and six other party members.
Last week, the federal Attorney General’s Office announced that it was taking over two corruption investigations involving the outgoing governor. Duarte and others were being investigated for illegal enrichment, embezzlement and breach of duty.
Duarte is very unpopular in his state and in June elections the PRI lost the Veracruz’s governorship for the first time.
