Juan Torres López, Successor Of Humberto Moreira, Is Extradited To The US

On Tuesday, the Attorney General's Office (FGR) extradited the United States to the former interim governor of Coahuila during 2011, Jorge Juan Torres López, successor to Humberto Moreira.

According to sources at the institution, Torres López is required by the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Texas to be prosecuted for crimes of criminal association, money laundering and bank fraud.

According to US investigations, between 2007 and 2011, the PRI designed and executed various schemes to obtain public funds from the Coahuila government, through false contracts that generated payments for bribes made in favor of the extradited.


These funds were washed by the defendant, both in Mexico and in the United States.

Torres López was arrested in February this year in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. His defense filed several legal remedies to prevent his extradition.
He was a fugitive five years of American justice.
