María Georgina Domínguez Colio, former spokeswoman for Javier Duarte de Ochoa, was denied freedom Monday, as a district judge denied the appeal against the arrest warrant.
Through demand 593/2017, Domínguez Colio sought to reverse the informal pre-trial detention order against her. She is being charged for abuse of authority, breach of a legal duty and coalition against public service.
Domínguez Colio, will remain in prison. Although her crimes are not serious, the control judge considers her to represent a major risk to the investigation if she’s given her freedom.
Domínguez Colio was detained Saturday May 20, 2017 in Xalapa, Veracruz by the ministerial police.
