If convicted of money laundering and organized crime, the former governor of Veracruz could finish up with a 55-year prison sentence, says a senior official in the Attorney General’s office.
Elías said it was likely that the Mexican government would present an extradition request to the Guatemala government next week to have Javier Duarte sent home to answer to both charges.
Wanted in connection with the embezzlement of billions of pesos, the ex-governor told the court he had spent the previous six months in Guatemala.
An extradition process against another ex-governor, also wanted for corruption, is still under way in Italy.
But the former has since conceded to allow that priority be given to the extradition request by the U.S.
Yarrington is wanted for drug trafficking in Mexico and for importing and distributing drugs, money laundering, bank fraud and illicit money operations in the U.S.
