Interpol, accused of their possible participation in organized crime and operations with resources of illicit origin.
The FGR highlighted that in November 2019, through its Specialized Prosecutor for Organized Crime (FEMDO), opened an investigation file against both people, as well as Edgardo Mauricio “V”, Rosario “A”, Margarita “C”, Ricardo “P”, Mauricio “R” and seven companies, for the aforementioned charges.

“All these people, physical and moral, probably colluded to simulate operations and provide resources to that criminal organization; lowering tax burdens and hiding operations, thus making it difficult to track those resources,” said the General Prosecutor of the Republic.
He explained that these people presumably entered into various contracts with the Decentralized Administrative Body for Prevention and Social Rehabilitation of the Ministry of the Interior, using digital tax receipts online, which covered up false operations and pretended acts of commerce and provision of services that were not carried out; all this with the purpose of laundering money, disguising said crimes of legal profits that were supposedly non-existent.
According to FGR, the main organization was in charge of Inés Gómez Mont Y Victor Manuel Alvarez, and they operated with alleged representatives of legal entities. During their investigation, the agents of the Federal Public Ministry obtained information that there was a group formed by Héctor “Z”, Armando “R”, José “O”, Ricardo “C”, Yareli “C”, who carried out banking operations through name of legal persons.
The next group, made up of public servants, were those who illegally facilitated the resources of the federal treasury, entering into illegal contracts; and in that structure Eduardo “G”, Paulo “U”, Emanuel “C”, Jesús “P” and Jorge “N” were found.
Those responsible for the probable commission of these crimes have been charged before the #PowerJudicial and arrest warrants were obtained; three of them are already detained. In the cases of those who fled the country, the corresponding red card has been obtained. 2/2
