Mexico’s government said Tuesday Nov. 29 it has found about 421 million pesos ($20.5 million USD) linked to the former governor of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz who is sought in a corruption case, the Associated Press reported.
The Attorney General’s Office said two businesses that apparently received state funds from people representing ex-Gov. Javier Duarte through “illegal operations” have agreed to return the money.
The office originally reported the amount as 450 million pesos.
Duarte stepped down as governor Oct. 12, then disappeared. Prosecutors say they have been unable to find him despite extensive efforts to do so.
He faces charges of money laundering and organized crime. A reward of 15 million pesos ($730,000) has been offered for his capture.
