The Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) achieved the first blow to the real estate network of former Mexican Secretary of Public Security Genaro García Luna in the United States. A Florida judge ordered this Wednesday that the Mexican government recover the first 2.5 million dollars that they would have diverted through fraudulent contracts during the six-year terms of Felipe Calderón and Enrique Peña Nieto.

Journalistic investigations revealed early this year the 19 properties that the UIF links to the alleged corruption network of Genaro García Luna, which took its tentacles to Florida in exclusive residential areas.

Two weeks ago, it was two years since the UIF filed an unprecedented civil lawsuit in Florida Court, demanding that, for the first time, a foreign government help Mexico recover properties allegedly acquired through acts of corruption.

This Wednesday, October 4, Judge Lisa Walsh gave her verdict on the four properties totaling 2.5 million dollars, purchased by the company Delta Integrator, one of the dozens of companies involved and identified by the UIF as complicit in the corruption scheme of the former Secretary of Public Security of the last PAN government.

The UIF confirmed that these four apartments are directly linked to Linda Cristina Pereira, García Luna’s wife, and that, until the beginning of this year, she even lived in one of them.

According to the FIU’s 2022 list of addresses and appraisals, these are properties located in two buildings in a shopping mall in Aventura, Florida that are opposite each other. In the first building there are three adjoining apartments, one with a value of 900 thousand dollars, another for 510 thousand 965 dollars, and one more for 509 thousand 961 dollars.

The three are already sold and, according to the updated appraisals of the Florida Court, Delta Integrator’s lawyers must transfer one million 968 thousand 250.25 dollars to the Mexican government.

The fourth apartment is located in the building that is a few meters away, has a value of 555,880 dollars but is still in the possession of the company, so they must deliver the deeds to the Mexican government so that it can take possession of it.

This building is located in a commercial plaza in Aventura Florida, it is surrounded by restaurants, beauty salons, and parking lots. The reception has a large room with palm trees and a password is required to use the elevator.

The judge determined that because “the defendants committed the offense of failing to attend the trial,” they had a maximum period of 10 days to deliver the four properties linked to this company.
