Cancun, Q.R. — After weeks of appeal reviews, the Panamanian government has announced their final verdict, rejecting all appeals and signing the extradition order required to send Roberto Borge back to Mexico, reported Riviera Maya News.
On Friday December 15, the Government of Panama signed the resolution to extradite former Mexican Governor Roberto Borge, who was arrested by Panamanian officials in June.
Mónica de León, communications director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “The resolution, which is dated Thursday, was signed Friday by the president Juan Carlos Varela and the vice president and chancellor, Isabel de Saint Malo.”
The resolution, which will be published in the Official Gazette, was signed a week after the Supreme Court of Panama rejected three habeas corpus and one incident of objections filed by Borge’s defense team.
The ex-governor has exhausted all resources to avoid his extradition to Mexico and will remain detained until he is transferred to his country. “Mexico now has a maximum of 30 days to come looking for him,” said De León.
State Governor Carlos Joaquín González confirmed that the presidency of Panama has signed the extradition order for Roberto Borge Angulo, and that now, the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) has a month to bring him back to Mexico.
“We were informed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” the governor said. “We are attentive to this process and the ways in which the trials will be carried out.”
Joaquín González noted that Borge will not likely be brought to the state, but indicated that we must wait on the actions taken by the judicial authorities.
The former governor has an arrest warrant issued by a judge in the State of Mexico to the Attorney General of the Republic, to which three denunciations of the Attorney General of the State of Quintana Roo have been annexed. This means that the accused will be presented before this judge and held in a federal prison close to this court.
Borge, who was governor of Quintana Roo between 2011 and 2016 by the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), was arrested in early June at the Tocumen International Airport while attempting to board a flight to Paris.
The Foreign Ministry of Panama approved the extradition of Borge on September 18, a decision that was appealed by the former governor’s defense.
