Beatriz Mojica, general secretary of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), demanded that the federal Attorney General’s Office (PGR) investigate Veracruz Acting Governor Flavino Ríos over allegations that he helped suspended Veracruz governor Javier Duarte flee prosecution for corruption.

Mojica demanded that government intelligence agencies conduct a thorough and exhaustive search for Duarte, instead of only making a show for the media, as they did with former Sonora Governor Guillermo Padrés, who was also accused of corruption.

“What we need is to seize his properties and repair the damage to Veracruz,” said Mojica. “We need justice, and we need to fight impunity.”

The PRD said that Ríos had admitted complicity when he said that he had allowed Duarte to use a state helicopter after the latter had resigned. The PRD said that the PGR now has an obligation to investigate Ríos.

“Ríos has inherent obligations, like fulfilling the federal and local constitutions and the laws, so he shouldn’t be judged as just an individual, but as someone with a public responsibility,” said Mojica.
