The Mexico City Prosecutor’s Office confirmed the arrest of the businessman in the Miguel Hidalgo district. Del Valle is investigated for the alleged commission of generic fraud.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office , Interjet is behind the arrest of Del Valle, who has accumulated debts with the treasury since June last year, when, through his company HBC International, he bought the low-cost airline.
On that date, Del Valle made a commitment to the Alemán family to inject $ 150 million dollars, which never reached the airline.
Interjet is currently on strike and has not flown since December 11, 2020.
The information indicates that the businessman would only have paid $ 22 million in cash for the company, with which he took control of the airline.
